There has been much perfervid shouting and rending of garments (or these days, parading about with red splotches on the crotches of their clothing or performative displays in Handmaid's Tale costumes -- red hooded capes) to protest the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. On the other hand, those opposed to abortion hail this decision, claiming abortions will end or be much reduced

Russian President Vladimir Putin is leaving meetings to receive medical treatments amid ongoing speculation that he is ill, Christopher Steele, a former intelligence official in the U.K., recently said. "Meetings of the security council that are shown to supposedly last for a whole hour are actually broken up into several sections," Steele, who served in the MI6 intelligence office, said during an interview with LBC Radio. "[Putin] goes out and receives some kind of medical treatment between those sections." Steele also said that Putin is "constantly accompanied around the place by a team of doctors."

U.S. healthcare is now a solid week into the CT contrast shortage of ’22, and common themes are emerging in adaptations at local hospitals and imaging centers. One is the wisdom of making up-or-down contrast and scanning decisions one patient at a time rather than as a blanket short-term policy. Another is the commonsense call to reserve inventory for patients most in need while avoiding use of the term rationing. A third might be the fingers-crossed expectation that the shortage will not drag on to where it becomes a crisis.

McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas could become Harry Reid International as soon as September, a Clark County official said today. The county could conduct a ceremony and put up a new sign this fall to mark the renaming of the airport for the former longtime U.S. senator from Nevada, said Commissioner Tick Segerblom, a leading advocate for the renaming. The County Commission unanimously voted in February to rename the county-owned and operated airport for Democrat Reid, a Searchlight native who spent more than 30 years in Washington, mostly as a senator but also as a U.S. representative. He was Senate majority leader from 2007 to 2015.

There is a great deal of manipulation and falsehood in media presentation of the 2020 election. These lies and false constructs generate a great deal of anxiety. That said, there are two specific approaches by the narrative engineers that deserve a strong reminder. The first purposeful approach media use to create and embed their false assumptions is a slight of hand that few notice, and it can create anxiety. In normal term-two election cycles the baseline for media analysis should be the incumbent electoral win in term one. T

KENOSHA, Wis. — Police in Wisconsin have issued a “warning” about a “highly addictive substance” that has recently resurfaced. The Kenosha Police Department says the substance is commonly known as “Thin Mints,” “Peanut Butter Patties,” “Thanks-A-Lot,” “Peanut Butter Sandwich,” “Shortbread” and “S’mores.” They say that young girls run the operation and get customers with a “good cause story.” Police say if you come in contact with any of these addictive cookies, you can drop them off at the department. Officers are “happy to assist with proper disposal.”

Sen. Cory Booker announced Monday that he will end his campaign after failing to qualify for the Democratic debate planned for Tuesday in Iowa. "It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I've always said I wouldn't continue if there was no longer a path to victory," Booker said in an email to supporters Monday. The New Jersey Democrat's announcement came a day before six presidential candidates will participate in the CNN/Des Moines Register's debate in Des Moines, Iowa. He did not qualify for the event. It also came as the Senate gears up for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Lizzie Fletcher’s first bill — a measure meant to cut away federal red tape and speed up disaster recovery funding — passed the House nearly unanimously, with just seven votes against it and some of the chamber’s most conservative members joining the freshman Democrat in pushing the legislation forward. The next day, Fletcher voted to impeach President Donald Trump — a move Republicans are dead-set on making sure overshadows all else Fletcher has done in her rather effective first year in Congress.

When a big event happens anywhere in the country, sometimes anywhere in the world, a San Antonio connection somehow emerges. Sometimes it’s found deep in the details. Sometimes it has been there all along, hiding in plain sight. All too often, it comes with bad news. So it was with the death this week of Congressman Elijah Cummings, whose storied political career began when he fought to desegregate a Baltimore swimming pool. He was 11. In his last hours, as the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, one of three panels leading impeachment investigations of President Donald Trump, Cummings signed two subpoenas.

The Democrat-led House Intelligence Committee has released the whistleblower complaint that triggered President Trump's impeachment inquiry. The complaint cites “multiple White House officials with direct knowledge of the call" between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and accuses Trump of attempting “to pressure the Ukranian leader to take actions to help the President’s 2020 reelection bid.” It also presents allegations that the White House tried to "restrict access" to records of the call. "In the days following the phone call, I learned from multiple U.S. officials that senior White House officials had intervened to 'lock down' all records of the phone call, .
