'Science Is on Our Side,' Pro-Life Sen. Marsha Blackburn Tells Abortion Supporters

Advances in medicine and ultrasound technology have resulted in science supporting the efforts of the pro-life community, senators said Wednesday during a Judiciary Committee hearing on Texas' heartbeat abortion ban.

"Science is on our side," Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), who is pro-life, said during the hearing.

The hearing was called by Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.), who is chairman of the committee and argued that the Texas law "flouts the Supreme Court's long-established precedent in Roe v. Wade and effectively bans nearly all abortions in Texas." The law, which went into effect Sept. 1, prohibits abortion if a scan detects an unborn baby's heartbeat. The law places enforcement power into the hands of private citizens via...More

More than 700 Afghans have left the U.S. Army bases where they were temporarily housed to receive services for their transition to the United States, even before completing their resettlement, according to a report.

The number of “independent departures” could be higher than 700, Reuters reported Saturday, quoting two sources familiar with the data who also said the number includes more than 300 Afghans who walked out of Fort Bliss in Texas.

In the battle against COVID-19, most of the world has turned to vaccines as the main line of defense. Still, a number of doctors and hospitals are looking for other options that could potentially play a role in defeating this global pandemic.

Several treatments have seen success in treating the disease, such as Regeneron and Remdesevir. The drug Ivermectin also continues to generate interest. While the FDA and other organizations advise against it, one Israeli doctor is reporting positive results in clinical trials.

Professor Eli Schwartz is with the Sheba Medical Center in Israel, considered one of the world’s top hospitals....More

High levels of toxins found in more baby food brands, government report says

Eight months after a congressional report shed light on the issue of toxins in baby food, a new report finds more cases of major manufacturers selling baby food with high levels of toxic heavy metals.

The report, out Wednesday from the House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, describes dangerous levels of arsenic, lead, cadmium, mercury and other toxins, which can be particularly dangerous to developing babies and toddlers.

Investigators said two of Gerber's Infant Rice Cereal products contained inorganic arsenic levels over the Food and Drug Administration's limit. They said Gerber "failed to recall" those products.

Most of Plum Organics' products contained heavy metals too, including popular Superpuff snacks. And they said Walmart raised the amount of arsenic...More

More than 40 years after Israel and Egypt made peace in 1979, Egypt’s national carrier finally made its first official direct flight to the Jewish State on Sunday.

The EgyptAir passenger flight landed at Ben Gurion International Airport and was greeted with a water salute.

For decades, the airline's affiliate, AirSinai, has operated flights to Israel without the company logo out of fear of sparking public backlash. Sunday marked the beginning of three weekly EgyptAir flights between Cairo and Tel Aviv.

The Israeli Embassy in Cairo tweeted that direct...More

Controversial late-term abortion provider Dr. LeRoy Carhart is being sued by a woman over injuries she received during an abortion procedure done at his Maryland clinic.

Ashley P. Norris of Virginia filed a complaint on Sept. 23 in a Maryland federal court against Carhart, Dr. Elizabeth Swallow, and AbortionClinics.org, also known as Clinics for Abortion and Reproductive Excellence.

According to the legal filing, Norris was 25 weeks pregnant when she had an abortion at Carhart’s Bethesda facility in May...More

New Study Reveals Antibodies from Fighting COVID-19 Infection Can Last More Than One Year

A new peer-reviewed study has confirmed what several researchers and even some health professionals have been saying all along: Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus retain the antibodies to continue to fight it – often for many months following their initial infection.

Just The News reports the European Journal of Immunology accepted a study on Sept. 24 from scientists at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, who studied 1,292 subjects eight months after infection for the presence of antibodies.

The researchers found that 96% of their test subjects were still carrying antibodies and 66% still had the nucleoprotein IgG antibody. The Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody helps your immune system remember how...More

Pandora Papers reveal billions hidden by the rich and powerful

Hundreds of world leaders, powerful politicians, billionaires, celebrities, religious leaders and drug dealers have been hiding their investments in mansions, exclusive beachfront property, yachts and other assets for the past quarter-century, according to a review of nearly 12 million files obtained from 14 firms located around the world.

The report released Sunday by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists involved 600 journalists from 150 media outlets in 117 countries. It's being dubbed the "Pandora Papers" because the findings shed light on the previously hidden dealings of the elite and the corrupt, and how they have used offshore accounts to shield assets collectively worth trillions of dollars.

The more than 330 current and former politicians identified as beneficiaries of the...More

Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler Jr. said he believes China's recent efforts to restrict abortion for "non-medical reasons" shows that an entity “can be anti-abortion and yet not be pro-life.”

On an episode of Mohler’s podcast “The Briefing” posted online Monday, Mohler gave his opinion about the recent decision of China's communist regime to curb abortion access.

Mohler began by contrasting the totalitarian system of communist China with Western civilization, noting that with the latter, there is a “distinction between the public and the private” as well as “an acknowledgement of the right...More

Antisemitic graffiti has been found spray-painted on nine wooden barracks at the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz, the museum said on Tuesday. The Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum called the inscriptions "an outrageous attack on the symbol of one of the greatest tragedies in human history."

The graffiti included "two references to the Old Testament, often used by anti-Semites, and denial slogans" written in English and German, the museum said.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has refuted claims by a whistleblower and former product manager who testified before Congress Tuesday about how the social media giant is prioritizing profits instead of stopping the spread of misinformation and hate.

In a post to blog post Tuesday, Zuckerberg claimed that the media coverage surrounding the allegations presented by Frances Haugen "misrepresents our work and our motives." He further stated that "many of the claims don't make any sense."

"At the heart of these accusations is this idea that we prioritize profit over safety and...More

A Pennsylvania lawmaker has introduced a bill that would force men to undergo sterilization in response to the Texas law banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Democratic state Rep. Chris Rabb announced his intention to introduce legislation designed to “enforce reproductive responsibility among men.” In a memorandum sent to his colleagues Saturday, Rabb lamented that “for far too long, the public debate around abortion, contraception and related reproductive matters has thrust government into the center of restrictions on the bodily autonomy of women and girls.”

“I will be introducing legislation that will...More

'The Perfect Police State': China's Digital Dictatorship Goes Global

'The Perfect Police State': China's Digital Dictatorship Goes Global

In 2013, China's President Xi Jinping said that "whoever controls data has the upper hand".

Xi has been on a technological quest to build what some call a blueprint for a digital dictatorship ever since.

It would not only allow China's communist government to control huge volumes of data on its own citizens but also of those around the world.

Dustin Carmack worked as chief of staff for the Director of National Intelligence.

"You are talking about vast amounts of data they are running between, both either covert or overt cyber-attacks and in other realms, they are sucking up massive amounts of data around the globe that could have nefarious purposes in the long-run," Carmack, with the DC-based Heritage Foundation, told CBN News.

Appeals Court Rules Texas Can Enforce Heartbeat Abortion Ban

Appeals Court Rules Texas Can Enforce Heartbeat Abortion Ban

The pro-life community in Texas won another legal battle Friday when a federal appeals court ruled the state’s heartbeat abortion ban could be enforced while the judges considered an emergency motion.

The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, in an opinion by a three-judge panel, placed a stay on a lower court ruling from two days earlier that had blocked the law.

The law in question prohibits abortions if an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detected. The law is unique in that it grants the sole power of enforcement to the state’s citizens. Enforcement involves lawsuits against those who violate the law.

Technically, the order by the Fifth Circuit is only temporary. In the next few days, the judges will either extend the order or will side with the district court in blocking the...More

The debate over President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate continues to be a matter of contention among federal workers, contractors, and the private sector as his administration attempts to crack down on unvaccinated Americans.

Some say the mandate violates an individual's personal and religious freedom while others argue that it ignores the natural immunity of millions of Americans because they have fully recovered after coming down with COVID-19.

A group of Ohio clergy representing more than 100 congregations across the state signed a letter Monday that was addressed to President Biden, detailing why they strongly...More

Merck asks FDA for emergency authorization for first pill to treat COVID-19

Merck asks FDA for emergency authorization for first pill to treat COVID-19

Drug maker Merck asked U.S. regulators Monday to authorize its pill against COVID-19 in what would add an entirely new and easy-to-use weapon to the world's arsenal against the pandemic.

If cleared by the Food and Drug Administration - a decision that could come in a matter of weeks - it would be the first pill shown to treat COVID-19. All other FDA-backed treatments against the disease require an IV or injection.

An antiviral pill that people could take at home to reduce their symptoms and speed recovery could prove groundbreaking, easing the crushing caseload on U.S. hospitals and helping to curb outbreaks in poorer countries with weak health care systems. It would also bolster the two-pronged approach to the pandemic: treatment, by way of medication, and prevention, primarily through...More

Inside The World War II Rescue That Made JFK A Hero Long Before He Was Elected President


Future president John F. Kennedy in the Navy, where he served in World War II.

John F. Kennedy always shrugged off suggestions that he’d been a hero in World War II after his vessel was hit and he helped save the lives of his crew. “It was involuntary,” he said “They sunk my boat.” But Kennedy’s naval heroics were much more astounding than he often let on.

On Aug. 1, 1943, a Japanese destroyer sliced straight through Kennedy’s PT-109 boat, breaking it into two pieces. Trapped in open water with several badly injured sailors, the 26-year-old stepped up.

Over the next several days, Kennedy — who only got into the Navy thanks to his father’s maneuvering — proved himself a hero again and again. His brave, daring acts saved lives, and later earned him the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Medal for Valor and a Purple...More

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order Monday to prohibit any entity, including private business, from enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on workers and called on state lawmakers to pass a similar ban into law.

The move comes as the Biden administration is set to issue rules requiring employers with more than 100 workers to be vaccinated or test weekly for the coronavirus. Several major companies, including Texas-based American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, have said they would abide by the federal mandate.

“No entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine by any individual, including an employee or a consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience,...More

Retailers in California that sell childcare items or toys and have 500 or more employees will face fines of up to $500 if they fail to “maintain a gender-neutral section or area,” according to a new bill signed into law by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday.

The bill, AB 1084 sponsored by California Assemblymember Evan Low, who also chairs the state's LGBTQ Caucus, requires large retailers that sell toys or childcare items “to maintain a gender neutral section or area, to be labeled at the discretion of the retailer, in which a reasonable selection of the items and toys for children that it sells shall be displayed, regardless of whether they have been traditionally marketed for either girls or for boys.”...More

Oil and Gas Prices Spike to Highest Level in 7 Years, America Now Paying an Extra $400M Per Day at the Pump

Oil and Gas Prices Spike to Highest Level in 7 Years, America Now Paying an Extra $400M Per Day at the Pump

Oil and gas prices are surging, hitting highs not seen in at least seven years thanks to a combination of factors that have escalated over the past year since President Biden took over the White House.

Gasoline prices at the pump are topping $3 a gallon. The national average price is $3.31. That's $1.07 more per gallon than Americans were paying a year ago.

Some analysts are blaming pandemic-related supply backups and Hurricane Ida. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday the latest increase comes as the cost of crude oil rises and demand goes up in Europe where refineries are switching from burning gas to oil-based fuels.

"The problems continue to relate to a surge in demand as the...More

North Carolina’s Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson has indicated that he has no plans to resign after facing backlash led by a leading LGBT activist group for calling homosexuality “filth.”

Robinson, a Republican, is responding to criticism for describing homosexuality as “filth” during a speech at Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove, North Carolina. While he made the comments in June, Robinson has faced renewed criticism in recent days, including calls for him to resign.

Addressing the congregation, Robinson remarked that “There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth. And yes, I...More

Lego has taken another step toward going woke, announcing it's eliminating so-called gender bias from its products.

The toy company did not specify what changes will be made but announced its products will be "free of gender bias and harmful stereotypes." The move comes after a recent study found that girls are discouraged by an "unequal and restrictive" mentality towards creative activities and playtime.

The initiative comes after "researchers" with the Geena Davis Institute interviewed nearly 7,000 parents and children aged 6-14 in China, Czech Republic, Japan, Poland, Russia, UK, and the U.S. about their views on careers, sports, and toys.

Lego released the report to coincide...More

Starting in early November, the Department of Homeland Security will exempt...More

Granting a request by Republican attorneys general in Texas and Missouri, a federal judge in August ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the so-called "Remain in Mexico" border program, which required 70,000 non-Mexican migrants to wait outside the U.S. for their asylum hearings.

While it is appealing that decision and...More
