A rare winter storm that dumped a foot of snow on Seattle couldn’t keep a 90-year-old woman from making her first COVID-19 vaccine appointment

Just because our Media, Drug Makers and Government often mislead and misinform does not necessarily mean these vaccines have no value. Vaccines have virtually eliminated smallpox and polio. People were/are skepitcal of seat belts and helmets---but they do provide some protection. And, Covid 19, while perhaps not dangerous as advertised, it can be quite devastating for older folks with any underlying conditions. So, good on her----she shows the spunk and "sand" that Americans have been known for. I don't think she did it out of fear--just felt that taking a medicine to reduce her chances of becoming ill was worth the effort and risk.

Vandals targeted the home of one of former President Donald Trump's impeachment lawyers, spray-painting the word "TRAITOR" in red on his driveway in suburban Philadelphia, police said.

Intimidation like this is cowardly act and evil.

Democrats appeared to undermine their own argument on incitement by claiming that the Capitol riot was not the result of "one speech."

The President takes an oath to "Protect and Defend" the Constitution. If the President believes thru observation and after counsel from his advisers that election fraud improperly changed the election, it is his duty to take every legal step to correct the wrong. Whether his opinion is correct or incorrect is a matter for adjudication by courts and ultimately by Congress. But, every legal step arguably includes asking supporters to assemble and peacefully protest--which is exactly what Trump did.

Martin Luther King led the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963. Blaming the race riots of the 1960's that followed on King would be rediculous as blaming Trump for the violence on Jan 6.

Moments before Super Bowl LV kicked off Sunday night, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden made a call for a moment of silence that was interrupted by the crowd booing.

Very nice comments and nice gesture UNTIL..."moment of silence for 400,000+". Ask to join in prayer to Almighty God, not a PC "moment" and don't legitimize the exaggerated death statistics. Many people who "died with Covid" DID NOT "die from Covid". So a well intentioned Public Service Announcment became a left wing political statement. Biden either has no desire for unity or he is severely tone deaf to the opinions of a large % of America.

There’s a “strong authoritarian streak” that runs through parts of American evangelicalism, warns Elizabeth Neumann. What should be done about it?

I found this article to be quite disturbing. It attempts to discredit Christianity and American Patriotism. Very few Christian's are Qanon believers. Christian's do believe there is a struggle between Good and Evil because the Bible tells us there is...and any sane person can see the struggle happening every day. Many believe that massive increases in mail in voting MAY have enabled fraud. This does not make them extremist..it makes them logically skeptical. The first step toward oppression is marginalizing and discrediting a group. These are leftist tactics and must be called out as true hate speech.

The rising popularity in online trading has led to an internal crisis in the financial markets and renewed scrutiny of their engine rooms.

The "real" problem is that there is insufficient limitations on short selling and derivatives. These are the causes of extreme volatility. And, online traders need no protection---they just need more experience---the kind they have just had. Short term "speculation" is gambling and there will be winners and losers. Long term investors with discipline to only buy value and primarily interested in the fruits of corporate ownership are not much affected by gambling.

A group of House Democrats introduced a resolution in the House Monday that would remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., from her two committee assignments as a consequence for her inflammatory and false statements.

Congress has no right to censor the legal speech or behavior of any Member of Congress nor do they have the right to somehow punish or discriminate against a Member solely on their legal speech. or behavior. The People of her District and the Law are her only masters.

As the Trump-hating Lincoln Project imploded this weekend due to grooming charges against one of its leaders, Rep. Adam Kinzinger jumped into action to scoop up its leftist donors. Rep. Adam Kinzinger announced on Monday he is forming an anti-Trump PAC to “take back” the GOP from Trump. No doubt, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan…

There are many today who completely reject the philosophy of the Republican Party of George Bush, John McCain, Paul Ryan and Romney. Those who followed this philosophy lost to Obama twice, allowed Pelosi to return and ultimately assisted in the election of Biden. Reagan and Trump both opposed their philosophy of Big Government, Foreign Military Adventures and Globalization allowing China to rise. They are like the Whigs of the 1850's and will ultimately go to the dustbin of history. Either a new party will emerge or all of them will leave and the Republican Party can then become the "party of the American patriot who loves Freedom and God less than Government"...not a cult of Trump. Trump was/is an imperfect soldier in the battle against the ungodly who worship government power. Trump is probably too old to keep up the struggle. Another, younger and less imperfect leader will hopefully emerge soon.

It is important to remember that the "Make America Great Again" is not about going back to a time of segregation and white supremacy. Republicans fought a war to end Slavery and provided ex-Slaves with Citizenship and their civil rights. Making America Great Again is about re-establishing Freedom and a respect for Almighty God without allowing Washington DC to make up new man made rights and abolish those provided by God Himself.

In an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, a civil-liberties legal group contends lower-court rulings in a Rhode Island case have set a dangerous precedent that allows police officers in some instances to enter the homes of citizens without a warrant and confiscate legal firearms.

The purpose of requiring a warrant before a police search is to insure "due process". Obtaining a warrant to search an automobile may be impractical In an "emergency" but obtaining a warrant before the invasion of someone's home is seldom a burden for the police.
