The Navy has filed criminal charges against a sailor in connection with the July 12, 2020 fire aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard, which raged for several days in San Diego and forced the Navy to scrap the ship. The sailor, who has not been identified, was a member of the crew at the time and is accused of starting the fire, said Commander Sean Robertson, a spokesman for the Navy‘s 3rd Fleet.(Snip)The Navy ultimately decided that repairing the Bonhomme Richard and getting it back out to sea was simply an insurmountable obstacle. More than half of the ship would


It will cost $30 million to decommission the ship (that stimulates the economy!), versus the $3 billion cost to repair the massive damage. Do americans deserve to know the name of the arsonist? Maybe it's the same person who murdered Ashli Babbitt, or Seth Rich for that matter. There are things we simply do not deserve to know.

Sailor hasn't been identified? Then how can the Navy court martial a sailor they haven't ID'd yet? Oh I got it. Sailor 'X' belongs to a certain demographic that must not be named.

I made two westpac cruises in the USS Hancock CVA-19 1970-74. I guess this bulge rat will have his pay docked for life and spend a long time in the brig. They could give him a helo ride up to 10,000 ft and open the door and see if he can sprout wings before doing a splash check.

An angry crowd beat a man to death after a car crash in the Bronx, repeatedly stomping his head against the concrete as his brother was also beaten nearby, cops and prosecutors said Thursday. Two suspects were arrested in the case—and were freed on bail before the death of Geuris Guillermo, 42, raised the attack to a homicide. A gang of 10 to 15 people pummeled Guillermo and his brother, Ambiori Guillermo, just before 2:40 a.m. Sunday—right after the two collided with another vehicle on the corner of East 176 Street and Carter Ave. in Mount Hope.

Cartersville, Ga—A man is charged with sexual battery after police say he groped women in a grocery store. When other shoppers at the Ingles in Cartersville heard what was happening, they stepped in and made sure the man wasn't going anywhere until police arrived. Josh Collins was in the grocery store with his daughter. "Heard a huge commotion and I hear a woman say 'You can't grab me like that," said Collins.(Snip) The men say a number of people have thanked them for stepping in. They say they didn't do it for praise, they did it because it was the right thing to do.

Australia today used helicopters and the army to enforce its 'Zero Covid' lockdown, as thousands of police flooded Sydney city centre to enforce the rules and hand out $500 fines for those not wearing a mask.

Three-quarters of patients who tested positive for COVID-19 after numerous large public events in a Massachusetts town were fully vaccinated, according to a federal study published Friday. Among the 469 COVID-19 cases identified, 346, or 74%, occurred in fully vaccinated people, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report found. Most of the vaccinated patients, 79%, experienced symptomatic breakthrough infections. Testing from 133 patients revealed that the delta variant was responsible for 90% of the cases. Of the five COVID-19 patients who required hospitalization, four were fully vaccinated. No deaths were reported.

A new coronavirus variant that originated in Colombia has been detected in South Florida. Variant B.1.621 has yet to receive a Greek letter designation from the World Health Organization (WHO), but it is starting to make an impact in Miami. Carlos Miyoga, CEO of Jackson Health System in Miami, told Local 10 that the strain accounts for around 10 percent of cases in the area. Health experts suspect that constant travel between Miami and Colombia caused the variant to travel in the state and are urging residents to get vaccinated. The variant was first discovered in January in the Colombia, where, at its peak in late June,

Los Angeles—Health officials in Los Angeles County said over 25% of new coronavirus cases are among those who have been fully vaccinated, an increase from last month, according to a report Wednesday. Health officials have called the vaccines effective and said breakthrough cases are to be expected, but the number is a noticeable increase from June when fully vaccinated individuals accounted for 20% of the county’s infections, Fox 11 Los Angeles reported. "As more people are vaccinated, the number of fully vaccinated people becoming infected will increase and with the Delta variant that’s far more infectious, exposures to infections have also increased," Barbara Ferrer,

And yet it made perfect sense. Biles was simply saying “no” to the enormous pressure, physical and psychological, that an event like

One of the most obvious misconceptions about liberals today is that they personify tolerance. The Oxford English Dictionary defines tolerance as "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with. A recent poll by the Survey Center on American Life at the American Enterprise Institute found that Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to report ending a friendship over a political disagreement (20% versus 10%). Liberals are also "far more likely than conservatives are to say they are no longer friends with someone due to political differences" (28% versus 10%).

The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P.

People who do not comply with Covid-19 pandemic restrictions are mostly male, more extroverted and more likely to put their own self-interests above those of others, suggests a new study of behaviours internationally. University of Sydney researchers assessed behaviours and attitudes towards Covid regulations in 1,575 people in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US between April and May last year, during the first wave of the pandemic. Their study, published in the journal Plos One, found that about 10% of people reported being non-compliant with restrictions. These ind

You’d be forgiven for forgetting they existed, but the fugitive Texas Democrats, who fled their state to stop the passage of a mundane voting integrity bill, are still hanging out in Washington, DC.

That’s when they aren’t spreading COVID to everyone, of course. There was a sighting a few days ago in which some of them appeared with Al Sharpton at the MLK memorial.

Michael LaRosa said Jill Biden's foot was punctured while she walking on a beach in Hawaii last weekend, but it was "unclear what object caused the puncture." After the procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, LaRosa said, "The wound is now clean, free of infection and it is anticipated that it will heal nicely." President Joe Biden joined his wife at Walter Reed for the procedure. The Bidens returned to the White House Thursday night.
