Border Patrol detains 9 year old U.S. citizen for 36 hours after falsely accusing her of lying about her identify

In San Diego, the United States Border Patrol grabbed a girl who is 9 and a U.S. citizen and on her way to school, accused her of lying about her identity, then detained her for 36 hours. Many families in the San Diego-Tijuana area cross the border routinely for work, school, and shopping. The child and her mother live on the Mexico side, and school is on the U.S. side. They were reunited after the kid had been held away from her parents for 36 hours, when the Mexican consulate got involved....

Massage Parlor Magnate Denies Reports She Hawked Trump Access

Florida massage parlor mogul Cindy Yang denied reports suggesting that she hawked access to President Trump in an interview with NBC today, telling the network that she was a victim of a politically motivated smear campaign. “I’m Republican and I’m Chinese,” the network quoted her as saying. “That’s the reason the Democrats want to check me.” She added that she had taken the American name Cindy after immigrating in 1999, out of appreciation for musician Cyndi Lauper. Yang came under media scr...

The perverse power of the Democrats rule that a candidate with 65,000 donors gets into the debates.

WaPo explains, noting that the obscure candidate John Delaney is offering to give $2 to charity if you give him $1. Delaney is wealthy and self-funded. So he can do something like that easily.The Democratic Party also set the fundraising threshold with the goal of expanding the early debate stage to include as many as 20 candidates, who will be randomly divided to appear on consecutive nights in a two-day June debate hosted by NBC and a two-day July meeting hosted by CNN.Using polling alone to f...

3 Sanity Checks for Odd Bible Interpretations

I was just having lunch with some pastors, and we were having a friendly disagreement over exegesis. One experienced expositor said, “The Holy Spirit chose precisely this word and not another, so it must have special significance.” I said, “Yes, but we can’t overinterpret: Greek is a human language; it’s not some perfectly precise mathematics problem.” As is often the case, I think both of us preachers were right. Each of us was merely reflecting his particular calling. The older pastor has ...

Bacteria Discovered In Irish Soil Kills Four Drug-Resistant Superbugs (slashdot)

NBC News reports on how microbiologist Gerry Quinn "followed up on some folklore his family had passed on to him." Old timers insisted that the dirt in the vicinity of a nearly 1,500-year-old church in County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland, an area once occupied by the Druids, had almost miraculous curative powers.... "Here in the western fringes of Ireland there is still a tradition of having this folk cure," Quinn told NBC News. "We can look at it and see maybe it's just superstition -- or we c...

Unvaccinated high school student is suing the health department for banning him from school during a chicken pox outbreak

An 18-year-old high school senior is suing the Northern Kentucky Health Department for banning him from school and sports during a chicken pox outbreak. He refuses to get vaccinated because of his "Christian faith," so the Health Department refuses to let him attend school or play sports. "The fact that I can't finish my senior year in basketball, like, our last couple of games, it's pretty devastating. I mean, you go through four years of high school playing basketball, you look forward to you...

TV Review: NBC’s ‘The Village’

Even by the standards of network television, NBC’s “The Village” wears its inspiration boldly and openly: It’s “This Is Us,” except set among the disparate residents of an apartment building rather than the members of a family. “The Village” leans, hard, into the “This Is Us” formula of trauma-as-drama, deriving its tone from its characters […]

Amazon's HQ2 in Virginia just cleared a major hurdle, and it reveals a key difference from its New York project (AMZN)

The Arlington County Board approved a $23 million incentives package for Amazon on Saturday. The tax incentive is directly related to Amazon's plan to build a second headquarters, known as HQ2, in Arlington County and will be fueled by a higher tax on hotel rooms in the area. It's in addition to the larger incentive offering of $550 million being offered by the state of Virginia.  The board meeting was contentious, with protesters interrupting so often that the meeting was forced to adjourn an...

'The Fix' gives Marcia Clark a trial do-over

There are few do-overs in life, but O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark gets one -- even if it's fictionalized -- with "The Fix," an ABC drama that hews just closely enough to that case to spur interest before veering into an exaggerated lane. NBC, meanwhile, drives straight into a creative cul-de-sac with "The Village," which desperately wants to mirror "This Is Us" and merely provides a reminder that it takes a village, sometimes, to mess up a TV show.

Carson’s Schedules Show Frequent Friday Florida Trips, Very Few Staff Meetings

Perhaps taking after the Commander in Chief, Housing and Urban Development Director Ben Carson hews to a lax schedule for his day-to-day operations, taking frequent midday Friday trips to his property in Florida and only huddling with his senior staff once a week. According to an NBC News report, the schedules, obtained through a watchdog lawsuit, show that Carson usually flew commercial to his Florida mansion on his own dime. His first appointments in the office began at 9 or 10 A.M., though...

'Facebook, Axios And NBC Paid This Guy To Whitewash Wikipedia Pages'
