The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging Americans to avoid all travel to Mexico as cases of COVID-19 continue to surge across the Central American nation. Within the last two weeks, Mexico has surpassed more than 1.11 million confirmed cases of coronavirus and reported over 105,000 deaths – the fourth highest virus death toll in the world, behind the US, Brazil and India respectively. Mexico also has the second-highest case fatality rate per every 100,000 residents of any country in the world at 9.5 percent. Only Yemen, with a fatality rate of 28.3 percent, has fared worse.

Isn't life great? Biden wants to bring more people from there to here to vote in the US to install a government like they have at home in this country too. Oh! Joy!

I am sure I read that the CDC was not going to make a count of flu deaths this year. Am I the only one who read that? Anyway, good way to boost covid death count. I trust no government agency.

Well if you take what Biden said during the campaign to heart, he essentially pledged to the Democrat Party that he will promote "open borders" with Mexico, and apparently the American people when they voted for Biden also voted for "open borders". So if Biden gets in and keeps his pledge it will be a sight to be seen along the borderline, as masses of illegal aliens cross over into the USA believing what Biden said, that he will not deport any illegal aliens other than illegal aliens convicted in the USA of violent felonies, which means that to most of those crimes the victim will have been a US citizen and the door will be open to all sorts of foreign criminals to stay in the USA. The rush along the borderline has already started with thousands of unaccompanied illegal alien minors coming across after Biden said that he will make the DACA amnesty permanent so that all illegal alien minors will be able to stay in the USA. Then or course Biden has said that he will amnesty just about all the illegal aliens now in the USA and put them on a path to US citizenship, that may be about 20 million or more illegal aliens, and of course Biden and the Democrats intend to also transform them into future leftist and liberal Democrat voters. Who knows maybe Biden and the Democrats will put the incoming masses of illegal aliens at the top of the heap as far as being offered one of the new COVID vaccines. Its is going to be interesting especially if the Democrats take control of the US Senate.

We haven't been to Mexico in at least 35 years. Even then, we drove across the border at Nogales AZ to sample local cuisine then promptly got back on the US side. My older son is a pilot for Frontier and occasionally gets a flight leg to Cancun. That's about it for my clan. Nothing for us to see here.

Facebook has de-prioritized removing hateful slurs against white people, men and Americans, instead focusing on blocking slurs against black people, gays, Jews and other groups. The change on Thursday in Facebook's algorithm is a shift from the social network's 'race-blind' system that previously removed anti-white insults as well posts such as 'men are dumb' or 'Americans are stupid.' [SNIP] 'We know that hate speech targeted towards under-represented groups can be the most harmful, which is why we have focused our technology on finding the hate speech that users and experts tell us is the most serious,' said Facebook spokeswoman Sally Aldous.

Now 74, Kucinich is publishing a book, “The Division of Light and Power,” about his effort to save the power company, now known as Cleveland Public Power. In an exclusive interview with 3News, Kucinich talked about the book, the current state of the troubled utility and whether his future includes another bid for mayor.

Is a rebellion against President Trump brewing in federal courts in the District of Columbia? We ask because of the latest development in the case of General Michael Flynn. A judge has questioned whether Mr. Trump's pardon of the general might be "too broad." The judge who made that comment isn't handling the Flynn case. His comment is shocking, though, while the judge who is sitting on General Flynn's case has yet to respond to the government's motion that the case be dismissed as pardoned.

Voters who imagine that they control what the government does are mistaken. Our federal government is really at the mercy of the huge unelected bureaucracy, the Deep State, that represents the “big” in our bloated federal government. Everybody who lives within 15 miles of Washington is part of it, or so it seems. Of all the ways in which the Left is attempting to redefine America, its support for an enormous bureaucracy has been the most successful.The people we elect—the president and Congress—are merely a front for the Deep State. The federal government has become separated from the American public that it is supposed to serve.

For the third time in less than 30 hours, four justices on the state Supreme Court dealt President Donald Trump a setback Friday, saying they wouldn't accept a lawsuit by Trump allies who wanted to let Republican lawmakers instead of voters decide how to cast the state's electoral votes. As with two decisions Thursday, Friday's ruling was 4-3, with conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn joining the court's liberals to rebuff the president as he seeks to take away Democrat Joe Biden's narrow win of the state. "The relief being sought by the petitioners is the most dramatic invocation of judicial power I have ever seen," Hagedorn wrote.
