Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy posted an emergency press conference to Twitter on Friday after news broke that the Supreme Court had overturned Roe v. Wade, sending the abortion issue back to the states. In the two-and-a-half minute video, Portnoy called the ruling "pure insanity," stipulating he didn't represent his company's employees. (Snip) "The left f-----g hates me. The woke left, the liberals, they’re crazy. They’re insane people. Yet, I end up having to vote for a moron like Biden because the right is going to put Supreme Court people in who are just ruining this country, taking basic rights away," he said.

Polio may be spreading in the UK for the first time in nearly 40 years, health chiefs warned today as they declared a 'national incident'. Officials have found traces of a vaccine-derived version of the virus in sewage samples in parts of London and say it is 'likely' transmitting within the community. Parents are being urged to ensure their children are up to date with their polio vaccinations, particularly after the pandemic when school immunisation schemes were disrupted. All British children are supposed to have had the first of three polio jabs as a baby (Snip) The remaining, type 1, wild polio remains endemic in only two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Chicago - Chicago police officers will no longer be allowed to chase people on foot simply because they run away or give chase over minor offenses, the department said Tuesday, more than a year after two foot pursuits ended with officers fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy and 22-year-old man. (Snip) Under the policy, officers may give chase if they believe a person is committing or about to commit a felony, a Class A misdemeanor such as domestic battery, or a serious traffic offense such as drunken driving and street racing that could risk injuring others. Officers won't be allowed to chase people on foot if they suspect them of minor
With Garbage LGBT ‘Scholarship’, Colonial

Colonial Williamsburg is the world’s largest living museum, and a place visited and loved by many conservatives, traditionalists, homeschoolers, and classical education devotees. Williamsburg is beloved precisely because, for decades, it has faithfully depicted the founding culture of America in a meticulously recreated, and often re-enacted, Revolutionary-era capital. This depiction included America’s undeniably traditional, Western, largely Judeo-Christian roots. But now Williamsburg has gone woke. In doing so, its leadership and staff are displaying conspicuous enmity toward the highly reasoned position held by America’s founders—a position at odds with today’s LGBT dogma. It’s not merely during Pride month, which Williamsburg now celebrates. Colonial Williamsburg has established an ongoing Gender

With temperatures soaring into the high 90s for the second straight day, City Council members on Wednesday demanded to know why so many Chicago Park District pools remain closed while lakefront beaches are open. The Park District manages 49 outdoor pools, 28 indoor pools and works with the Chicago Public Schools to operate school pools for community use in neighborhoods without a park pool. Efforts to open those pools have been hampered by a nationwide shortage of lifeguards (Snip) Most everybody’s job when I was a kid started off as a bus boy somewhere or a dishwasher. That’s what we did. Now, it’s like that’s beneath people.”

Months after distressed moms have been vocally upset and concerned about the baby formula shortage, the media is finally starting to ask, how could this happen? The short answer is lockdown supply chains and the shutdown of one of the country’s largest formula plants in Michigan (Snip) Freeman said her clients and industry contacts began noticing an FDA crackdown on European formulas in the last few years, before the lockdowns, but an even greater spike since last August, well before the Abbott recall and plant shutdown that many are pointing to as the source of the shortage.(Snip)In some ways, the FDA seems more concerned about labeling than the nutrients themselves.
