Very nice man and wife. From the first I heard about his infection I was concerned. Very sad. I have no doubt if he was transferred to LSUMC in Shreveport he was getting the most advanced care available. LSU has a very aggressive ICU program.

My understanding is they sent him home to rest with no treatment. He got worse and was admitted to the hospital. They also stated he had a heart attack after a “treatment,” what on earth is that? Their health “expert” said he had no underlying health conditions. He died of covid. Something stinks here! Regardless, we lost a young and vibrant family man with leadership and conservative values. G_d bless and bring peace to his family!

Very sad news. He would have been one of the youngest members of Congress. It's very unusual for someone his age to succumb to COVID. May he rest in peace.

According to a family member who is a doctor, one thing that the virus can do is coagulate the blood, causing the blood to thicken so that it causes a heart attack. Sounds like that is what happened in this case. Condolences to his family.

A virus that can coagulate blood sounds engineered to me. There have been strong suspicions of that all along. The degree of contagiousness is still unknown, I believe.

Dr. Seuss's political leanings are well known—he was a liberal Democrat who opposed fascism in the 1940s and President Nixon in the 1970s. The new movie of his book The Lorax is a fairly unsubtle pro-environment allegory. Less well celebrated are Theodor Seuss Geisel's early advertising and political cartoons from the 1920s through the 1940s, which feature a decidely racist streak.

Midwives have been told to stop using terms including "breastfeeding" and “breastmilk” as part of a new trans-friendly policy at an NHS trust.

Amid the escalating coronavirus pandemic, Erin Stanton, owner of Susie's Senior Dogs (SSD), is stepping up to help elderly pets by covering the cost of fostering them. In an interview with Fox News, she explained that there is a greater need to get dogs out of shelters during the COVID-19 crisis. That’s because of limited volunteers, and the lessened ability for people to go to shelters and adopt. In turn, dogs receiving limited walks and care. It was a call to action for Stanton.

Following the refusal of the professional political class within the U.K. to honor the Brexit votes of the majority, British leader Nigel Farage came off the sidelines and said ‘enough’. Farage and a group of independent British politicians have formed the Brexit party to take down the two-party structure and finally deliver the voice of the people. Their Brexit party campaign has been criss-crossing the nation ahead of elections on May 23rd. The response has been exceptional…. “A Movement for Democracy”.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Appearing on Yahoo!

The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

“There must have been a moment, at the beginning, when we could have said –-no. But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
