Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg told airline executives to clean up their act and avoid another flying catastrophe before July 4 as a record number of flights were canceled across the US for a second day in a row. On Friday, as of 11am, more than 1,000 flights across the US have been canceled and more than 2,300 have been delayed. LaGuardia is the second highest in the US for cancelations today, with 98 flights, with Charlotte Douglas Airport leading the pack with 113 cancelations.(Snip)Buttigieg, alongside millions of other travelers, are tired of what feels like constant cancelations without so much as an apology from the airlines.


The showboating gay rat flies private at US taxpayer expense when he blows out to San Fran or Fire Island; who is he kidding? And what a nerve he has lecturing others on how to do their jobs; clown couldn't even keep the potholes filled in South Bend, and he's a US cabinet official purely on the merits of his being a pervert who the agencies see as a possible future president of this failed nation.

Imagine boarding a flight, and you see Joe Biden, dressed as a pilot, entering the cockpit. Pete Butt sounds like he is giving orders without bothering to hear the problem. These clowns don't care. They are busy saving the planet, and secretly think there should be no air flight.

I thought crippling transportation was the goal of this leftist administration. Gas prices are too high for most of us to even think of taking a road trip and the airlines are cutting flights, resulting in the public reducing their "carbon footprint".

Demanding something does not make it so. Biden and company do an awful lot of demanding. What are they doing to alleviate the problems? Pay people to stay home and not work. Block oil and gas production. And then complain there aren't enough people for jobs or energy to power the country. These people act like spoiled brats. Pete's equivalent of jumping up and down in his crib, shaking his rattle and screaming, does not improve transportation.

Cancelled flights along with CCP virus shots, traffic delays, firing pilots and increased fuel costs are part of the plan to reduce freedom. It is not a bug. The deep state is unaffected.

Over ninety per cent of failed asylum seekers in 2020 were not deported by the UK Home Office, analysis conducted by the Oxford Migration Observatory has found. The dismal record of the Conservative government to take back control of the nation’s borders has been demonstrated once again, with 91 per cent of migrants refused asylum in the year in which the UK left the European Union were left free to remain in the country. According to figures complied by the Oxford Migration Observatory, provided to The Guardian newspaper, showed that of the 3,632 migrants blocked from asylum, only 314 were actually removed from the country.

The United States—long a beacon to reproductive rights activists in Latin America—will now start to resemble those countries without Roe’s guarantee of a right to legally access abortion, say campaigners. For activists in places such as El Salvador, where abortion is entirely banned, and Venezuela, where there exists on the statute an exception to save the life of a woman though in practice is equally criminal, the decades-long success of campaigners in the US was often an inspiration. For women in Argentina, where “Green Wave” activists succeeded in their own landmark victory to secure legal abortion in late 2020, there was support from counterparts in the US

Some were already waiting outside when the clinic opened at 9 a.m., doing their best to ignore a group of protesters at the parking lot entrance, shouting at them through a loudspeaker. “You don’t have to go in!” the activists pleaded with the women. “They murder babies!” The clinic’s longtime owner, Dr. Alan Braid, was back in his office when his daughter, Andrea Gallegos, the executive administrator, ducked in. “It’s out.

Pfizer announced Saturday that tweaking its COVID-19 vaccine to better target the omicron variant is safe and works—just days before regulators debate whether to offer Americans updated booster shots this fall. The vaccines currently used in the U.S. still offer strong protection against severe COVID-19 disease and death—especially if people have gotten a booster dose. But those vaccines target the original coronavirus strain and their effectiveness against any infection dropped markedly when the super-contagious omicron mutant emerged.(Snip)Moderna recently announced similar results from tests of its combination shot, what scientists call a “bivalent” vaccine.

Washington—Up to 40,000 Army National Guard soldiers across the country—or about 13% of the force—have not yet gotten the mandated COVID-19 vaccine, and as the deadline for shots looms, at least 14,000 of them have flatly refused and could be forced out of the service. Guard soldiers have until Thursday to get the vaccine. According to data obtained by The Associated Press, between 20% to 30% of the Guard soldiers in six states are not vaccinated, and more than 10% in 43 other states still need shots. Guard leaders say states are doing all they can to encourage soldiers to get vaccinated by the time limit.

"Today’s Supreme Court ruling overturning #RoeVsWade will have deadly consequences, with the harm falling hardest on people of color who already face disproportionate discrimination in our country and grapple with a severe maternal mortality crisis," Milano wrote.

It's the old Norman Rockwell painting of a little black girl clad in a white dress, being escorted by lawmen into a desegregating school in Mississippi, with foul racist graffiti and tomato stains on the wall behind her, that serves as their template for Republicans -- despite the fact that the people who opposed desegregation in the Deep South were Democrats.
