A statue of the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus outside a Downtown Jersey City Catholic church was vandalized and stolen Thursday night. Church officials said surveillance cameras recorded the vandalism and the Jersey City police have already been notified. “The gentleman was seen grabbing a brick and then throwing it at the statue,” said Nicholas Grillo, the church’s music director. “He broke it, then packed all the damage up and took it away.”(Snip) Just two weeks ago, a larger Virgin Mary statue, located on the opposite side of the building, was broken when someone tried to rip the statue off its pedestal.


Some such acts are deemed Hate Crimes worthy of federal investigation. Others, not so much.

“The *gentleman* was seen grabbing a brick and then throwing it at the statue,” I don't think that word means what you think it means.

No doubt, the statute us emblematic of white supremacy and systemic racism. So, it had to go.

“The gentleman was seen grabbing a brick and then throwing it at the statue,” Substitute "puke" for "gentlemen" and I'll read the article.

Senseless and stupid. Whether this vandal is caught in this life or not he will end up facing a certain 'Judge' and I would not want to in his shoes when that happens.

Since the music director calls the vandal a "gentleman", I guess they didn't really mind their statues being destroyed.

Why do some people think they have the right to destroy the property of others? You do not have to like a status but if it is not yours and not on your property - get over it.

"gentleman" So that is the new politically correct name to call criminals? Just like calling illegal aliens "migrants", "undocumented Americans"? This is beyond insane.

Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush sparked controversy on Sunday with a tweet in which she said Independence Day was only a holiday for white people.

Bush, who was first elected to the House of Representatives in November, has been widely viewed as the newest member of the so-called 'Squad' of congresswomen known for being outspoken on their left-wing views, and she is no stranger to controversy.

Engineers believe a Miami condo that collapsed killing at least 24 residents may have been built using less reinforced steel than the plans called for—as officials planned to blow up the remaining wing with 121 people still missing.

Austin, Texas—Republican Allen West, the former Florida congressman and firebrand who rode into office on the tea party wave a decade ago, said Sunday that he will run for governor of Texas in a bid to again seize on restless anger from the right. His odds are far longer this time around: Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who is up for a third term and may also be eyeing a 2024 presidential bid, has already locked up the endorsement of Donald Trump–whose voters West would need to have any shot at winning a GOP primary in Texas. The hurdles don’t stop there.

More than 1.3 million people are currently awaiting deportation decisions in immigration courts, and the average case has been pending for nearly three years, according to new data that sheds light on just how broken the U.S. immigration system has become. A decade ago just 300,000 cases were pending, and even three years ago it was fewer than 770,000 cases, meaning the government has netted more than 550,000 cases on its docket since 2018, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said the growth is a sign of just how lax America’s border controls

The New York Times sparked fireworks with an Independence Day report on the political implications of displaying the American flag—just weeks after being forced to defend an editorial writer who said she was “really disturbed” to see Old Glory flown by supporters of former President Donald Trump. The Times article—with the online headline “A Fourth of July Symbol of Unity That May No Longer Unite”—suggests that Trump supporters have embraced the flag “so fervently” that liberals have “all but ceded the national emblem to the right.”(Snip)“What was once a unifying symbol–there is a star on it for each state, after all

The top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee accused Democrats on Sunday of “playing with fire” in refusing to back a thorough probe into China’s role in the outbreak of the COVID19 pandemic. Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas said on “Fox News Sunday” that further scrutiny was required into the origins of the pandemic that has killed more than 600,000 Americans. To date, Democratic congressional leaders have refused to back a widespread investigation into whether China played any role in the outbreak.(Snip)“We are getting information from other sources and I believe there’s a high degree of probability now that it came from that lab,”

When I was in middle school, I came out to my family and close friends as bisexual. When I was in high school, I discovered pansexuality and thought, ‘That’s the flag for me.’

Those of Joe Biden’s public behaviors that align with classic dementia symptoms are escalating. In the past few days, he strongly exhibited two symptoms: A type of belligerence that’s a cover-up for confusion and memory loss and a paranoid fear of those in charge of him. I used to spend a lot of time in the company of doctors. What always fascinated me were the tales they told of dealing with patients with early-stage dementia. The most interesting point they made was that elderly people, so as not to lose face or admit their own fears, are superb at deflecting the questions aimed at assessing their cognitive skills and memory.
