Meta Will No Longer Allow Ads Targeting Politics, Religion, Sexual Orientation on Facebook, Instagram

Meta, the newly named parent company of the social media giant Facebook, announced Tuesday that early next year, it will no longer allow its advertisers to target ads on topics related to politics or other sensitive issues, including religion.

The Wall Street Journal reports the company said as of Jan. 19, it will no longer allow advertisers to highly personalize their messages to users on topics including politics, race, health, religion, and sexual orientation.

Meta said it was a difficult decision because it believes the best advertising is personalized. Facebook's ad tools helped reap the company $86 billion in revenue last year, the newspaper reported.

The new advertiser policy will be...More

Judge Recognizes Hippos as ‘Persons,’ yet the Unborn ‘Still Have No Rights’: Pro-Life Group

A prominent pro-life group is criticizing a U.S. federal court for its landmark recognition of a group of hippopotamuses as “persons” even as – the group notes – courts have yet to grant preborn human babies “the same legal status.”

The unique animal rights case involves a group of hippos in Columbia that were illegally brought there by drug lord Pablo Escobar before he was killed in 1993. Although the group of hippos initially numbered about four, it has since multiplied to between 65 and 80.

Hippos can be notoriously dangerous and kill about 500 people in Africa each year, according to National Geographic. Some in Columbia want to slaughter the hippos, while others have advocated for relocating or sterilizing them. A lawsuit in Columbia could...More

This Year's Thanksgiving Dinner Could Be Most Expensive Ever as Cost of Living Spikes to 30-Year High

This Year's Thanksgiving Dinner Could Be Most Expensive Ever as Cost of Living Spikes to 30-Year High

There's no relief in sight from inflation as the Labor Department reports the cost of living just keeps rising.

The Consumer Price Index rose at a higher rate than expected, up 6.2 percent since last October. That's the highest in more than 30 years.

On top of that, the Producer Price Index, which measures wholesale prices, showed a jump of 8.6 percent from last October. That's the biggest leap in that category in 11 years.

Soaring gas and auto prices are driving the surge and analysts say inflation will drive up home heating prices this winter from the price of natural gas to the cost of electricity.

With the price of fuels already surging, energy sector experts were alarmed to note that the...More

Navy SEALs Sue Biden Admin for Refusing Religious Exemptions for Vax: 'An Attempted Ideological Purge'

Dozens of U.S. Navy SEALs and Special Warfare Command crewmen are taking legal action against the Biden administration and the Defense Department for their refusal to grant religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Attorneys with First Liberty Institute filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of 35 service members on Tuesday.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced in August that all U.S. troops will be required to get the COVID vaccine - a move that is supported by President Joe Biden.

"The fact that the government has not granted a single religious exemption from the vaccine mandate shows that the Biden administration is engaged in an attempted ideological purge," said Mike Berry, General...More

Olympic gymnast Suni Lee said this week that she was the target of a racist attack months after winning gold at the Tokyo Olympics. Lee, a Hmong-American 18-year-old from Minnesota, told PopSugar about the alleged incident in an interview published Wednesday.

Authorities Baffled After Mysterious Couple Steals $400,000 Worth Of Wine During Spain Hotel Heist

Authorities Baffled After Mysterious Couple Steals $400,000 Worth Of Wine During Spain Hotel Heist
Atrio Restaurante Hotel | The thieves stole a 1806 Château d’Yquem worth $407,000.

The peaceful facade of the Atrio luxury restaurant and hotel in Cáceres, Spain, was broken late last month when two mysterious guests vanished after pulling off a staggering wine heist worth well over $1 million.

According to The Guardian, the thus-unidentified thieves distracted hotel employees long enough to slip into the wine cellar and steal 45 bottles. The perpetrators appeared to know exactly what they were after, too. They waded through some 40,000 bottles in the temperature-controlled basement to nab a 215-year-old Bordeaux that was alone worth $407,000.

According to Whiskey Raiders, the heist began with a refined-seeming couple who...More

Parents in Leon County, Florida, are suing the school district for holding a meeting with their teenage daughter about her chosen gender identity without their knowledge or consent. The parents have warned that the district’s LGBT policies create a “wedge” between students and their parents.

January and Jeffrey Littlejohn filed a lawsuit against the school board, Superintendent of Schools Rocky Hanna and Assistant Superintendent, Equity Officer and Taitle IX Compliance Coordinator Kathleen Rodgers in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida on Oct. 18.

In the lawsuit, the Littlejohns accuse the defendants of violating their substantive due process right to direct the education and upbringing of their children...More

The Austrian government has ordered a nationwide lockdown for unvaccinated people starting at midnight Sunday to combat rising coronavirus infections and deaths.

The move prohibits unvaccinated people 12 and older from leaving their homes except for basic activities such as working, grocery shopping, going for a walk — or getting vaccinated.

Authorities are concerned about rising infections and deaths and that soon hospital staff will no longer be able to handle the growing influx of COVID-19 patients.

Queen Elizabeth II missed out on the Remembrance Sunday service in London to pay tribute to Britain's war dead because she sprained her back, Buckingham Palace said Sunday.

The service, one of the most important on the 95-year-old monarch's calendar, was widely expected to be her first public appearance after canceling events in recent weeks on doctors' advice.

"The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today's Remembrance Sunday...More

Israeli and Polish government officials on Saturday condemned an antisemitic incident involving Polish nationalists chanting “Death to Jews” on Poland's Independence Day this week.

Participants at the gathering also burned a copy of a medieval document that offered Jews protection and rights in Polish lands. The public expression of hatred occurred in the central Polish city of Kalisz on Thursday amid holiday celebrations across Poland.

The leaders of the event also referred to LGBT people and “Zionists” as “enemies of Poland” who need to be expelled.

Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminski said Saturday he hoped that “the people who organized the shameful and scandalous assembly in Kalisz on November 11...More

Higher pay, less red tape: U.S. launches effort to recruit talent to fight cyber attacks

Seven years after Congress first directed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to build a federal recruiting tool aimed at courting professionals to help guard the nation against cyber attacks, the Cyber Talent Management System has launched.

The new system is designed to speed up a notoriously red-taped hiring process and offer higher pay.

Monday's launch comes in the wake of an avalanche of ransomware attacks targeting critical infrastructure, including oil and gas pipelines,and nearly a year after the discovery of Solarwinds, the Russian spy campaign that infiltrated more than 18,000 government and private computer networks.

'Nonbinary' ODU Professor Calls for 'Destigmatizing' Pedophilia

'Nonbinary' ODU Professor Calls for 'Destigmatizing' Pedophilia

Allyn Walker, an assistant professor at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, is arguing “minor-attracted people” — those sexually drawn to children under the age of 18 — should not be ostracized for their attractions, suggesting such urgings are OK, so long as they are not acted upon.

Walker, who identifies as “queer” and “nonbinary trans,” said during a recent interview there “is no morality or immorality attached to attraction to anyone, because no one can control who they’re attracted to at all.”

“In other words,” the professor said, “it’s not who we’re attracted to that’s either OK or not OK. It’s our behaviors and responding to that attraction that are either OK or not OK.”

U.S. officials say Russia destroyed a retired satellite in an anti-satellite weapon test, creating a cloud of debris that prompted the seven-member crew of the International Space Station to take shelter in their Crew Dragon and Soyuz spacecraft early Monday as a precaution.

"I'm outraged by this unconscionable action," NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in a statement. "With its long and storied history in human spaceflight, it is unthinkable that Russia would endanger not only the American and international partner astronauts on the ISS, but also their own cosmonauts.

California Supreme Court to Decide if Pronoun Misuse Can Lead to Jail Time

California Supreme Court to Decide if Pronoun Misuse Can Lead to Jail Time

The California Supreme Court has agreed to hear a major free speech case involving a law that criminalizes “misgendering” individuals by not using their preferred pronouns.

The multi-faceted law placed new restrictions on long-term care facilities and was geared toward protecting LGBT residents – yet a section on pronouns has sparked major pushback.

The controversial section makes it unlawful to “willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.” Violating the law could subject the employee to criminal penalties, including fines and jail time.

The California Supreme Court agreed last week to take the case. This summer, a three-judge panel of the California...More

The jury began deliberations Tuesday morning, after prosecutors and defense attorneys presented their closing arguments on Monday. Rittenhouse, 18, is charged with killing two men and wounding a third at a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August last year. Court will resume session at 9 a.m. CT Wednesday.

Meat Prices Skyrocket as Perfect Storm of Problems Spikes Everything from Pork to Poultry

Rising costs of labor, transportation, and grain are hitting many meat companies hard, and that will hit Americans hard at the grocery store.

Tyson Foods says higher costs have led them to raise prices on all of their products, the company saying the higher prices will continue into 2022.

The Wall Street Journal reports the Arkansas-based meat giant lifted prices across all of its major divisions. The spike is quite clear for the quarter that just ended Oct. 2, when compared with prices at this time last year. For the latest quarter, Tyson's beef prices are up by nearly one-third, pork prices by 38%, and chicken by 19%.

Parents Sue School after It Assists Child's Gender Transition over Their Objections

Parents Sue School after It Assists Child's Gender Transition over Their Objections

A Wisconsin couple has filed suit against their daughter’s school district, alleging that the principal and staff identified her as a transgender boy – and even used a male name and pronouns – over their objections.

Further, the complaint says, their daughter changed her mind about transitioning when they pulled her out of the school and when she had time to reflect on the situation.

Alliance Defending Freedom is representing the father and mother in their state lawsuit against the Kettle Moraine School District, which the complaint says has a policy that allows students “to socially transition to a different gender identity at school without parental consent, and even over the parents’ objection.”

“This action seeks to vindicate one of the most...More

Two of the three men convicted of 1965 killing civil rights leader Malcolm X will soon be exonerated, Manhattan's district attorney announced Wednesday.

After a 22-month investigation, District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. found that authorities withheld evidence in the trial of Muhammad A. Aziz, 83, and the late Khalil Islam, who died in 2009, the New York Times reported. Both men spent over two decades in prison for a crime they vowed they did not commit.

Vance Jr. will hold a news conference Thursday to announce the investigation's findings.

Malcolm X, who was born Malcolm Little, was killed while giving a speech at New York's Audubon Ballroom on...More

Biden Admin. Suspends Vaccine Mandate after Court Ruling – but Legal Battle 'Is Not Over'

Biden Admin. Suspends Vaccine Mandate after Court Ruling – but Legal Battle 'Is Not Over'

The Biden Department of Labor said on Wednesday that it won't enforce the administration's vaccine/testing mandate while an appeals court decision against the rule is in effect.

The announcement by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a major victory for opponents of the mandate, including for a group of faith-based organizations who are challenging the rule in federal court.

On Wednesday, seminary president Albert Mohler, a supporter of the vaccine but an opponent of the mandate, called the decision "good news" but noted that the legal case "is not over." Mohler's institution, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, joined with Asbury Theological Seminary in early November in challenging the mandate in federal court.

The U.S. Fifth...More

Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai has resurfaced after almost 20 days of silence and global concern that she may have been detained. But images showing Peng over the weekend don't appear to have eased fears for her safety that began when she disappeared from public view following an accusation of sexual assault against one of the Chinese Communist Party's former top leaders.

As CBS News correspondent Ramy Inocencio reports, Peng's first real-time contact with the outside world...More

There were no other vehicles involved in the accident, which occurred around 2:00 am (0000 GMT) on a highway about 26 miles from Sofia, near the village of Bosnek.

United States Is Listed as a 'Backsliding' Democracy for First Time by International Watchdog

An international democratic think tank has placed the United States on its list of “backsliding democracies” for the first time, saying it has succumbed to “authoritarian tendencies” in recent years.

The “Global State of Democracy” report from the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance says “democracy is at risk” around the world due to a pandemic that has exacerbated threats to freedom through the “imposition of states of emergency, the spread of disinformation, and crackdowns on independent media and freedom of expression.”

More than one-fourth of the world’s population now lives in a “democratic backsliding” country – which the report defines as the “sustained and deliberate process of...More

40 Days for Life Celebrates Milestone of 20,000 Babies Saved from Abortions

An international pro-life organization recently celebrated a milestone of 20,000 babies being saved from abortion.

40 Days for Life, which seeks to end abortion through prayer and fasting, and by holding peaceful vigils outside abortion facilities, made the big announcement last Friday. Since launching its first campaign in 2007, 40 Days for Life has helped to save 20,368 babies and shut down 114 abortion clinics. According to Live Action, 229 workers have also quit the abortion industry.

Before Friday's announcement, 40 Days for Life shared highlights from its 2021 fall campaign in a webcast, where it reported that six sets of twins and its first set of triplets were saved. Additionally, three abortion workers quit, and multiple abortion clinics...More

All three white men charged in the death of Ahmaud Arbery were convicted of murder Wednesday in the fatal shooting that became part of a larger national reckoning on racial injustice.

The convictions for Greg McMichael, son Travis McMichael and neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan came after jurors deliberated for about 10 hours. The men face minimum sentences of life in prison. It is up to the judge to decide whether that comes with or without the possibility of parole.

Travis McMichael stood for the verdict, his...More

Biden Admin. Slammed for Removing Nigeria from Religious Persecution List: Thousands of Christians Have Been Killed

Religious liberty watchdogs are criticizing the Biden administration for removing Nigeria from an annual list of religious freedom violators, charging that it denies reality and is motivated solely by foreign policy interests.

At issue is an annual list released by the State Department that examines the status of religious freedom in every country in the world and designates the worst violators as a "Country of Particular Concern," which means they are guilty of "particularly severe violations of religious freedom."

Nigeria was considered a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) in the State Department reports of 2020 and 2019.

Yet Nigeria was missing in the State Department's 2021 report, which was released last...More

SpaceX sends NASA craft on collision course with asteroid to test concept of protecting Earth in case of future threat

Taking aim at a distant asteroid, SpaceX fired a small NASA probe into space early Wednesday, setting up a head-on 15,000 mph impact next September to test the feasibility of nudging a threatening body off course long before it could crash into Earth.

The $330 million Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART, the first test flight in a NASA planetary defense initiative, "will be historic," said Tom Statler, mission program scientist at NASA Headquarters. "For the first time, humanity will change the motion of a natural celestial body in space."

Suspect Who Drove SUV into Wisconsin Christmas Parade Charged with 5 Counts of First-Degree Intentional Homicide

On Tuesday, Darrel Brooks Jr. was charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide after he drove his red Ford Escape into a crowd of marchers during an annual Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

The aftermath of the tragedy injured 62 people and killed six people, one of which was an 8-year-old boy who succumbed to injuries, CBN News reports. On Tuesday, Brooks, 39, cried as the charges were laid against him during a court hearing. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison. His bail was set at $5 million.

Brooks, an amateur rapper under the name MathBoiFly, has a lengthy rap sheet with a total of 16 criminal charges, the first dating back to 1999.

The federal government will send 44 military medical staffers to Michigan to help beleaguered hospitals treat COVID-19 patients amid a fourth surge that is the worst in the country, state health officials said Wednesday. It also will open beds at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Detroit for transfers.

A transgender clinic for children in Dallas, Texas has been closed down after activists organized demonstrations against hospital board members and accused the program of committing child abuse.

A group called Save Texas Kids had held multiple protests against the GENder Education and Care Interdisciplinary Support (GENECIS) program at the Dallas Children's Health hospital, arguing that giving puberty blockers to children is abusive.

The Texas Tribune reports hospital officials had recently told a local website their program was vital for young people with gender dysphoria. Hospital officials said the care, which was considered the first of its kind in the Southwest, helped...More

Black Friday has arrived. What could go wrong?

Black Friday has arrived. What could go wrong?

Black Friday, typically the busiest in-store shopping day of the year, is expected to look a lot different this year compared to 2020, when many consumers, trying to avoid exposure to COVID-19, did the bulk of their holiday shopping online — from the safety of their homes.

This year, many families have built up substantial savings, and are eager to partake in holiday traditions that were hallmarks of the season before the pandemic, including flocking to stores the day after Thanksgiving to score deals on gifts and more.

"There is a yearning to get back to a feeling of normal, so in-store shopping is one way to accomplish that," said Bryan Cannon, the CEO and chief portfolio strategist at Cannon Advisers, who tracks consumer spending and holiday shopping trends.

Some consumers could find the experience...More

President Joe Biden has announced the United States is restricting travel from eight southern African countries beginning Monday due to concerns about a new variant of COVID-19, first discovered in South Africa and dubbed Omicron, which is potentially more contagious and has more mutations than the other strains detected thus far.

The eight countries include Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, Malawi and South Africa, the Biden administration said. The White House added that people on flights "scheduled to arrive in the United States that departed prior to 12:01 a.m. eastern standard...More

Colorado Drops 'Sex Offender' Term Because It Has 'Negative Impacts' on Those Who Commit Sexual Crimes

Colorado is doing away with the term “sex offender” because it’s stigmatizing to those who have committed sexual crimes.

The state’s Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB), tasked with controlling treatment for those convicted of sex crimes, voted 10-6 on Friday to replace the title “sex offender” with “adults who commit sexual offenses,” according to The Denver Post.

“I think this strikes a balance that honors the impact to victims and recognizes the current and ongoing impacts of sexual assault but also avoids the labeling term that has negative impacts on those who commit sex offenses,” said one board member, KCNC-TV reported.

The constitutional court said Nieto should not have been ordered to take down the video she posted in 2018 in which she was shown answering a question from a viewer about her views about marriage being only between a man and a woman, conservative law firm Alliance Defending Freedom International, which supported the YouTuber who has millions of followers, said in a statement.

When we first sent men to the moon back in 1969, our life expectancy was about 70. Today we're still going to space, but we can expect to live about eight years longer. But what if, like space itself, age could be almost limitless?

Three of the leading scientists on aging all agree that either slowing our clock, or perhaps even resetting it, is no longer science fiction.

Dr. Nir Barzilai, at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, said, "Aging can be delayed. Aging can be stopped. Aging can be reversed in several ways."

Morgan Levine, at the Yale Center for Research on Aging, said, "Maybe a 70-year-old of the future will look more like a 40-year-old or...More

Professor Resigns following Backlash for Suggesting Sexual Attraction to Minors without Acting on It Is Okay

A Virginia college professor has resigned following widespread backlash for suggesting that being attracted to minors while also not desiring to act on it is not immoral.

In an interview with the Protestia Foundation earlier this month, Dr. Allyn Walker, a former sociology and criminal justice professor at Old Dominion University (ODU), discussed their recently published book, A Long Dark Shadow, which included interviews with over 40 adults who were sexually attracted to minors. Walker is reportedly nonbinary and transgender.

"There is no morality or immorality attached to attraction to anyone because no one can control who they're attracted to at all," Walker explained. "In other words, it's not who we're attracted to that's either okay or...More

Parents sue Wisconsin school district over trans pronoun policy: 'Significant breach of trust'

Two sets of parents have filed a lawsuit against a school district in Wisconsin over a policy that reportedly allows students to change their name and gender pronouns without parental consent.

The parents filed the complaint in Wisconsin Circuit Court on Nov. 17 against Kettle Moraine Middle School, their names being redacted in the documents released to the public.

According to the complaint, one set of parents had a 12-year-old daughter enrolled at Kettle Moraine Middle School who was experiencing depression, anxiety and questioned her gender.

The parents sought counseling and wanted their daughter to be referred to by her birth name and female pronouns. However, the school replied that they would identify her by her chosen name and pronouns...More

Pro-life activists have expressed optimism while the head of the nations largest abortion provider expressed concern after the U.S. Supreme Court held oral arguments on Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban Wednesday, a case that could alter longstanding judicial precedent legalizing abortion nationwide.

Activists on both sides of the abortion debate held dueling rallies outside the Supreme Court as justices heard oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. Mississippi is asking the justices to reverse a lower court ruling striking down the state’s 15-week abortion ban while the Biden...More

The infected person was identified as a traveler who had returned from South Africa on Nov. 22, developed mild symptoms and tested positive Monday.

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco obtained a sample from the patient Tuesday evening and worked feverishly overnight to assemble the genetic sequence.

Atheist Richard Dawkins Sides with Christians in Transgender Debate: It's 'Discrimination against Women'

One of the world's most prominent atheists has sided with Christians and traditionalists in the debate over gender by asking his followers to sign a document that declares the "meaning of the word 'woman'" should not "be changed to include men."

Richard Dawkins, a well-known atheist and biologist and the author of The God Delusion, tweeted a link to The Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights, which was launched by a United Kingdom group that believes replacing "sex" with "gender identity" would result in "discrimination against women and girls." Although the document implicitly supports legalized abortion and progressive beliefs about sexual orientation, it also promotes traditional beliefs about gender and gender identity.

The death toll following the eruption of the highest volcano on Indonesia’s most densely populated island of Java has risen to 13, with seven people still missing, officials said Sunday as smoldering debris and thick mud hampered search efforts.

Mount Semeru in Lumajang district in East Java province spewed thick columns of ash more than 12,000 meters (40,000 feet) into the sky, and searing gas and lava flowed down its slopes after a sudden eruption Saturday triggered by heavy rains. Several villages were blanketed with falling ash.

Aung San Suu Kyi, the 76-year-old Nobel laureate who spent years under house arrest for advocating for democracy under the military dictatorship in her native Myanmar, was sentenced to four years in prison on Monday by the generals who toppled her civilian government almost a year ago. The military junta seized power in February, arresting Suu Kyi and many other politicians and activists in the process.

People Are Getting Vaccine Passport Microchips Embedded in Their Hands as COVID Advances the 'Internet of Bodies'

The number of Swedish residents who have opted to implant microchips with their vaccine passport into their hands has risen since the country announced new COVID restrictions, according to local media.

On December 1, Sweden enacted new rules that require individuals to have a passport at all events with more than 100 people.

In the name of “gender equity,” the Chicago Public Schools system is doing away with boys’ and girls’ bathrooms, opting instead for gender-neutral restrooms.

CPS Title IX officer Camie Pratt introduced the sweeping changes at the beginning of the week, stating: “On top of ensuring that each of our schools is a safe environment, we’re also taking steps to create more inclusive and supportive schools.

“In compliance with the new federal guidelines,” she continued, “all CPS students and staff will have fair and equitable access to bathroom facilities that align with their gender...More

Trans-identified swimmer breaks women's records after competing for 3 seasons on men's team

A trans-identified athlete’s continuous record-setting performances are causing concern among those who fear that allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports will damage the integrity of women’s athletics.

Lia Thomas, a trans-identified male who has been competing on the University of Pennsylvania’s women’s swimming and diving team this season, has shattered records even though the athlete competed on the men’s swim team in previous seasons.

As the University of Pennsylvania noted in a statement published over the weekend, Thomas completed the women’s 200-yard freestyle at the Zippy Invitational in Akron, Ohio, in 1 minute and 41 seconds, beating the second-place finisher by nearly seven seconds.
