The owners of the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin will reinstall four statues after controversially removing them earlier this summer in the mistaken belief that they were representations of slave girls. The four statues had stood on plinths at the front of the hotel since 1867, but management removed them in July at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement when symbols all over the world came under renewed scrutiny due to potential links to slavery.

Hopefully, the citizens of the USA will get past this WOKE stuff and start to elect people who want to protect our statues, honor our history, and return those statues that were removed by the democrats. Taking down statues is so Taliban-like, both for the rioters and the people who tolerate them.

On Sept. 15 the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse received multiple hate/bias incident reports over discriminatory phrases written in chalk around the university. The Racquet Press spoke with three UWL students, who all are choosing to remain anonymous due to concerns with their on-campus job positions. “This incident felt like an attack on my identity and presence on campus,” said the first anonymous student. The attack they referenced were messages written in chalk throughout parts of the UWL campus. Some of the messages written stated, “UWL college republicans” “UWL backs the blue”

President Trump has said the health of the American people is his primary concern when considering new FDA guidelines on a vaccine. On Wednesday, the President announced the White House may not approve tougher guidelines on the emergency use authorization of a coronavirus vaccine. According to reports, the FDA was gearing up to announce the stricter standards ahead of the election. As part of the new guidelines, manufacturers seeking authorization would have to follow trial participants for at least two months after a second vaccine shot.

A Texas city's annual Rotary Duck Derby, delayed for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, went forward without some of the usual fanfare, but with a Guinness World Record for lining up rubber ducks. The City of Graham's 3rd Annual Rotary Duck Derby, which was originally scheduled for April, took place at the city's Downtown Square. Residents could sponsor a duck in the race for $5 or 24 ducks for $100, with the proceeds being donated by the Graham Rotary Club to a variety of community projects.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is the front-runner to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Barrett is a mother of seven. She is also a devout Roman Catholic. Prepare yourself for a deluge of anti-Catholic hysteria from Democratic lawmakers, left-wing activists, and their allies in the press. The closer Barrett comes to sitting on the Supreme Court, the more desperate and uglier the anti-Catholic and anti-family attacks will become. In fact, with reports that Barrett is already the Trump administration’s first choice for the court, the Know-Nothing histrionics have begun already.

There is a verse in the Qur’an which says that the evildoers plot, but God plots best. This is one meaning of “providential” in Christian theology. It is also the meaning or subtext of God “plotting” or “directing,” for example, in the Old Testament story of Moses leading his people, the Israelites, to escape from the tyranny of the Pharaoh into freedom. Similar ideas can be found in other sacred texts. One of the most famous illustrations of God as the supreme and most powerful “plotter” or “schemer” in undoing evil is in the Hindu scripture, the “Bhagavad Gita.”

A new Congressional report claims China could have prevented a vast majority of coronavirus cases before the end of February if officials followed international health guidelines after the first outbreak occurred in Wuhan. The report, released Monday and authored by Republican members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, found that China initially covered up the spread of SARS-CoV-2 — which causes COVID-19 — and that the World Health Organization (WHO) was complicit because it “parroted” Chinese propaganda.

Two weeks ago, President Trump issued an executive order to root out critical race theory “trainings” from federal government agencies. Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, explained that “these types of ‘trainings’ not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce.” CNN anchor Brian Stelter credited City Journal contributing editor Christopher Rufo for bringing this issue to the administration’s attention through his investigative journalism, featured prominently on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

On September 16 the editorial board of the New York Times did the impossible. It said something nice about President Trump. “The normalization of relations between Israel and two Arab states, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, is, on the face of it, a good and beneficial development,” the editors wrote. They even went so far as to say that the “Trump administration deserves credit for brokering it.” I had to read that sentence twice to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. Perhaps the world really is ending.

WASHINGTON — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Friday. She may also be the only person to lie in state who has had a mourner do calisthenics in front of their casket. Bryant Johnson, Ginsburg's longtime trainer, dropped and gave the Justice a quick trio of push-ups when it was his turn to approach the flag-draped coffin shortly after 10:30 a.m. ABC7 spoke with Johnson last year about his relationship with Justice Ginsburg, who he trained for more than 20 years.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Democrats in of the House of Representatives will introduce a bill next week to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years from current lifetime appointments, in a bid to reduce partisan warring over vacancies and preserve the court’s legitimacy. The new bill, seen by Reuters, would allow every president to nominate two justices per four-year term and comes amid heightened political tensions as Republican President Donald Trump prepares to announce his third pick for the Supreme Court after the death on Sept. 18 of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with just 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his "henchmen" have no "fidelity" to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on "Morning on CBS" whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: "Oh, I do. Not that I don't think he'll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States."

Who can fail to be attracted to the Tesla? That sleek, silent-running electric vehicle seems more common on the road every day. The introduction of the Model 3 has put this fascinating, tech-heavy brand of car into the same price category as the more expensive nonluxury conventional vehicles. As a result, Tesla can barely build them fast enough to keep up with demand. Nor is Tesla the only make of electric car generating broad interest. Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, and other automakers are all expected to come out with new fully electric models in the next year or two. Even so, there are limits to this revolution.

Former CIA Director John Brennan personally edited a crucial section of the intelligence report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and assigned a political ally to take a lead role in writing it after career analysts disputed Brennan's take that Russian leader Vladimir Putin intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump clinch the White House, according to two senior U.S. intelligence officials who have seen classified materials detailing Brennan’s role in drafting the document. The explosive conclusion Brennan inserted into the report was used to help justify continuing the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation, which had been launched

In a play for Black votes, President Donald Trump vowed to designate the KKK—but also Antifa—'terrorist organizations,' he announced at an event in Atlanta Friday. The president will also increase capital to Black communities by nearly $500 billion, a figure first reported by Fox News. Trump will also push to make Juneteenth, the day slavery officially ended in the United States, a federal holiday. Trump made the promises with less than 40 days before the November presidential election as he spent Friday trying to firm up support with communities of color, who tend to vote heavily Democratic.

If you suspect that Joe Biden is suffering from dementia and that the very common symptoms known as “sundowning” are part of his illness, then his “mystifying” campaign schedule starts to make sense. (snip) President Trump mocked Joe Biden on Thursday after the Democratic presidential nominee's campaign called a "lid" on activities for the day early in the morning (snip) The explanation that best satisfies the observable data is that Biden is systematically shifting his circadian rhythms, so that his body will behave as if it is 9 AM or so when the clock in Cleveland, where the debate will be held, reads 9 PM.
