A college “coronavirus party” featuring surgical masks and chilled Corona beers has prompted anger from some on campus.
The University at Albany is investigating whether the off-campus party last weekend violated its student code of conduct after the Asian American Alliance at the school became offended by the party theme, calling it “not funny and completely insensitive.” Continue reading “Coronas and surgical masks: Coronavirus-themed party prompts university investigation”
BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg is continuing what appears to be an attempted “leveraged buyout” of the Second Amendment as Everytown for Gun Safety—the group he co-founded and bankrolled—has pledged to spend $8 million in Texas; just part of the $60 million that group has vowed to spend in order to elect anti-rights politicians this fall.
That’s the observation from the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Former New York City Mayor Bloomberg, seeking to buy his way into the White House by running for president as a Democrat, has weaponized his vast wealth to buy an election.

New Castle, DE — As the Free Thought Project has reported numerous times, the only thing dangerous about marijuana is what happens when the police catch you with it. Marijuana will not kill you, but the police officers who find you with it just might. The violent arrest of a 16-year-old Delaware boy proves this notion. Now, the taxpayers of New Castle will be held liable because the officer who did the punching, was not.

Mobile, AL — The Mobile police department is conducting damage control this week after one of their officers was recorded by a bystander choking a handcuffed man and slamming him into a patrol car.
Had a bystander not recorded the incident, this officer would still be on patrol. However, it was announced on Wednesday that officer Blake Duke had been placed on desk duty. Officials say Duke “has been taken off patrolling the streets and has been placed on desk duty pending the outcome of the investigation.” Continue reading “Cop Caught on Disturbing Video Choking and Beating Handcuffed Man”
HOUSTON (CN) – A federal judge dismissed the claims of Houston residents seeking to hold the government liable for flooding their homes with Hurricane Harvey storm water released from two dams, finding there is no constitutional right to perfect flood control.
U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Loren Smith’s Tuesday order came the same day the Weatherwise magazine published a study naming Hurricane Harvey the most extreme storm of the 2010s, responsible for $108 billion in property damage and 82 deaths.

A small New York town of roughly 16,000 people has rebuffed their local library, which had planned to host a Drag Queen Story Hour event on February 8.
Robin Janovich and Tom McDermott of The Rye Record saw an announcement about the program at the Rye Free Reading Room (RFRR) in late January. Janovich wrote that seeing the announcement “stopped us in our editing tracks: Drag Queen Story Hour. For ages 3-8. ‘Families can celebrate difference, learn empathy, and create crafts…Kids are encouraged to celebrate diversity while building confidence in self-expression.’” Continue reading “Small Town Pushes Back Against Library’s Drag Queen Event For Young Children.

Based on a study that cites such potential dangers as the “sharp edges” on scissors and “toxic chemicals” in glue, state lawmakers in Virginia are on their way to approving a new licensing law to cover art therapists.
There is no word on whether kindergartners will continue to be allowed to use these tools that, in the hands of unlicensed adults, apparently constitute a risk to public safety. Continue reading “Virginia Is About To Require a Government License for ‘Art Therapy,’ Because Glue and Scissors Are ‘Potentially’ Dangerous”
MADISON, Wisc. — As a kid, I always kicked into full subterfuge mode on the days I received my report card. In order to keep my report card hidden, I suddenly engaged in secret operations that would be the envy of any World War II-era spy. Hiding secret documents from the Nazis would have been child’s play compared to hiding my grades from my parents (who often only found out report cards had been issued weeks after the fact, after talking to other parents from the school.)

Fort Lupton, CO — In 2019 alone, cops in Colorado shot or killed a total of 67 citizens. Out of those 67 citizens shot or killed, only one cop faced any repercussions. Officer Zachary Helbig was charged with manslaughter last year after he shot and killed an unarmed man for absolutely no reason. Sadly, however, because people are blinded by the sheen of the badge, last week, a jury acquitted Helbig for executing Shawn Billinger on Jan. 16, 2019.
