I’ve never heard of rapper Travis Scott before today but he was the headlining act at a large outdoor concert in Houston yesterday called Astroworld. At some point after his show started, people in the crowd began pushing forward toward the stage, crushing those at the front until many of them passed out. Rolling Stone reports that people in the crowd desperately tried to get security to stop the show but no one would listen. This clip shows people climbing up on a platform where a cameraman was shooting the concert. They are trying to get him to tell someone to stop the show. In any professional multi-camera shoot


I would sound cynical if I said that's about the number of deaths in Chicago on a Saturday night? Who goes to these awful things?

One of the multiple reasons not to put yourself in these situations. Life is all about choices. Attending this stuff is a bad choice. If you didn't know that before, you should now. No excuses next time.

Attending a RAP concert is oddly stupid to begin with. RAP is NOT music! It's vile disgusting message is words with a marching band beat (a very simple beat by the way). Going to one of these with 10's of thousands of like minded RAP fans is asking for a new Unhealthcare experience!

Shall we say "thankfully it wasn't a country music concert hence a number of lives were spared"? Was mandatory listening to "Rap" a provision of the infrastructure bill?

This rapper has a history of inciting these disasters. But until this venue, the venues have always been smaller. What kind of monster incites this, then stands back and watches the horror show? I always knew the Kardashian women were trash, but what kind of woman dates a monster like this? I hope this guy gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I've been to many bluegrass concerts, country music concerts, soul music concerts, rock and roll concerts, heavy metal band concerts, even music festivals with over 100,000 fans in attendance. Never saw anything like this. I didn't have to guess what type of "music" was being played at this show. "Music" that extols violence, hate (especially for the police and white people), racist ideology, misogyny, profanity, and violence -- like rap "music" does -- are natural breeding grounds for this type of ultra-violence and destruction. Sad for the innocent victims, but, even sadder, not shocking at all!!!

With my tinfoil hat firmly in place: I've read reports of several hundred storming the VIP gate some time before the surge happened. Were these hundreds Antifa/FBI agitators that later started the surge? Also, there are many reports people were stabbed with hypodermic needles before and during the crush to the stage. A Las Vegas redux?

The stampede starts from the back of the crowd and like a wave moves forward. Those in the front don't even know it's coming until it's too late. As the wave starts and moves forward, the people get caught up in it and the rush continues.

I work event security in TN. From what I saw the event security was useless in this scenario. When the gates fall apart, everything falls apart. We are trained to look for guns, knives, and other sharp objects like sticks, but we are not trained for mob mentality. We have armed guard back up and Metro Police at every gate, usually one of each, but that would not be enough to stop mayhem like this. If it's an NFL stadium then there are 2 snipers present. One on top of each Jumbrotron/scoreboard. Did you know that? In the video, I saw one security guy trying to tackle the gate stormers. Useless. I have worked at all-black line-ups before. I would not ever do it again. The black MC of one concert got political right from the moment he got on stage yelling "F Trump!" Black attended concerts are VERY different from concerts such as The Stones, etc. The women come dressed like Ho's (so do white girls, at concerts, by the way, even with their Mama's in tow.) And there is a sexual electricity that oozes in the musical content and in the audience. The "F Trump" MC would roam the audience with his mike and talk to the audience and say to women "You got nice titties..." and the audience would suck it up. Women were twerking in the aisles and on the steps. I don't mean to sound this way but it looked like the f'n mating season in the rain forest with all those scantily clad booties up in the air. Folks, it's a different world.

Reading the accounts of people who were caught in that mess is horrifying. I was at a concert a few years ago that was inside a warehouse-type building. All the walls were painted black. Everybody had to stand. We started out in one place and got pushed back by the crowd. I have claustrophobia and spent most of the concert terrified. I never would have gone except our friends bought the tickets. It was a tame concert, but the idea that we were trapped in the black hole gives me nightmares. I really feel for the victims. What a horrible way to die. Hell, indeed.

The Kyle Rittenhouse trial has been an absolute disaster for the prosecution by every possible sane standard. Yet, lead prosecutor Thomas Binger and his team press on, concocting the absurdest of 'logic' and grasping at outlandish legal straws in a desperate attempt to try to put someone who clearly seems like an innocent teenager in prison for life. So, is this all really about Kyle Rittenhouse, or is it about something else entirely?

A Black Lives Matter leader vowed there’ll be “riots,” “fire” and “bloodshed” if Mayor-elect Eric Adams follows through with his promise to bring back plainclothes anti-crime cops to battle New York’s surge in violent crimes. New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome debated the plan for a return to tougher policing with Adams during a contentious sit-down at Brooklyn Borough Hall Wednesday that was livestreamed on Instagram. Although Adams found common ground with the activists on plans to fight poverty in the black community, the former NYPD captain said he’ll be reinstating a revamped version of the undercover anti-crime unit that was disbanded at the height of widespread police protests last year.

The U.S. electrical grid is ever more vulnerable to a devastating drone attack, according to a chilling joint report released by the FBI, the National Counterterrorism Center, and the Department of Homeland Security. The federal law enforcement bulletin Oct. 28, obtained by ABC News, said a modified drone that crashed near a Pennsylvania power substation in July 2020 was designed to disrupt the electrical grid, IB Times reported. The drone was found atop a building and is the first known drone attack. The July 2020 incident did not lead to any disruptions, but officials believe a drone was likely being used to try to deliberately damage U.S. infrastructure.

The editorial, noting that Virginia elected Winsome Sears, a black woman, as lieutenant governor, mocked Capehart’s analysis ahead of the election as a “‘racist’ fail.” Capehart argued Sears’ election doesn’t make his assertion wrong .“Whiteness is a hell of a drug.

The Elias Law Group is the firm that Marc Elias started earlier this year. Marc Elias is known for taking on cases involving election challenges — he’s represented Democrats in contesting elections.

The November 2 study by OnePoll analyzed the responses of 2,000 U.S. residents about how the COVID-19 vaccine has influenced relationships with loved ones. Fully vaccinated individuals accounted for 65 percent of respondents and nearly six out of 10 of those respondents had already severed ties with unvaccinated family members. CORRECTION*

Watching the news, one sees constant stories about COVID numbers rising, yet again, now almost two years into this pandemic, with COVID hospitalizations in some states higher than they have ever been except for the spike last December. In my state of Colorado, the test positivity rate is almost 10 percent, with 1 in 48 infected and if the current trend continues, this will be the worst COVID spike the state has seen. On the surface, that doesn’t make sense, since nearly 80 percent of eligible Coloradans have received at least one vaccine dose, suggesting the vaccines are not working as well as they should or as advertised

Vice President Kamala Harris is being increasingly alienated in the White House as her approval ratings plummet — as the first female veep feels she’s not getting the same support President Biden gives to white male politicians, according to a detailed new report. Despite their public show of unity, Biden and his right-hand woman have a dysfunctional relationship that has reached an “exhausted stalemate,” CNN said based on interviews with nearly three dozen insiders. At a time when the president would usually be expected to promote his vice president as a future replacement in the White House, Biden has instead been sidelining Harris as a potential liability, the report said.
