The Chicago Tribune Punishes Top Columnist for Being Even-Handed

from the American Thinker:

Cancel culture attacks John Kass, the Chicago Tribune’s top columnist

Since 1980, John Kass has been a fixture at the Chicago Tribune, where he writes columns about political topics. The Tribune has labeled him their “lead columnist.” Kass hews conservative but works to be even-handed.

That even-handedness wasn’t enough to save Kass, though, when he asserted, correctly, that prosecutors who got massive election funding from George Soros groups are a big part of the problem with the growing lawlessness in America’s Democrat-run cities. The same leftists who loath Israel sprang to Soros’s defense: Kass, they said, was anti-Semitic, and had to be punished. read more

Proteus – An Undersea Space Station of sorts

It’s been a big week for inventions named for the shape-shifting, fortune-telling Greek sea god, Proteus. On Monday we looked at Proteus, the world’s first manufactured non-cuttable material, and now there’s Proteus, the world’s most advanced underwater research station and habitat – though in this case the naming is probably more to do with Proteus’ status as the grandson of Poseidon himself. read more

WND Exclusive – A ‘cooling off’ period for gun buyers but not abortion seekers?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The other day I was discussing with fellow geeks the still-ongoing rioting, looting, destruction of property and general violence in cities throughout our country.

The conversation eventually bumped up against the latest “bail reform” laws promoted and passed by radical leftist city and state leaders.

And this got me to thinking about the juxtaposition of what leftists think is important and what isn’t. In other words, just how consistent are they?

In states and cities controlled by leftists, the waiting period to purchase a gun can range from three days to 30 days, like in New York. read more

Video Podcast – Covid-19 Affect on my City – Bring Out Your Dead

by: Brent Smith

Hi! I’m the really angry Common Constitutionalist and I want talk to you about the Panic-demic, or as Steve Deace of the Blaze calls it – Panic Porn.

There’s nothing quite as jarring as taking a leisurely bike ride down the once bustling Main St in your city or town, only to discover that’s it’s now a virtual ghost town.

And it’s not the fault of these shop owners, nor of their former employees, nor of a soften economy, a recession, or even a virus.

This whole mess has been and continues to be caused by scared, over-reactive, willfully ignorant and simultaneously power hungry government officials.

And interestingly, they are the only ones not paying a price. read more

Video Podcast – MLB Player Refuses to Kneel – A Bit about Fauci

by: Brent Smith

Giants’ Sam Coonrod says faith kept him from kneeling during racial justice demonstration

I give my thoughts on whether it was actually faith, or a political or racial statement, and what the likely repercussions will be.

And as an aside, What is MLB, as in Major League Baseball, spelled backwards? That’s right – it’s BLM, or Black Lives Matter. Fascinating!

A masked Saint Fauci threw out the first pitch at a Yankees vs. Nationals season opener baseball game.

He had donned his Washington Nationals jersey and official panicdemic mask.

He was then seen sitting in the stands, yukking it up, sandwiched side by side, by two others.

But where was his mask? read more
