A 6-month-old girl is in critical condition after being detained along with a group of 21 migrants along the southern border, according to a statement released Saturday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The infant and her father were apprehended by Border Patrol early Thursday in southern Texas after crossing the Rio Grande and entering the United States without authorization in a large group, CPB said.
Reports of the detained infant’s failing health comes after months of widespread criticism for conditions in the detention facilities, family separations and at least seven reported child deaths in custody since last year.
Medical staff at the Rio Grande Valley Sector’s Central Processing Center determined the child needed to be taken to a hospital. She was taken first to a local children’s hospital with her father, and then by helicopter to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Wikipedia, the online Encyclopedia, which has been routinely accused of left wing bias, has a list of ICE facilities under a section titled “concentration and internment camps,” and is keeping it there despite critics requesting it be removed.
The list of ICE facilities reappeared on the concentration camps page after Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, used the rhetoric to describe US holding centers on the border with Mexico.
Editors of the Wikipedia page cited the Democrats’ use of the term “concentration camp” to justify the inclusion of the ICE centers on the page.
A discussion regarding the inclusion of the centers has been closed, with the list of facilities remaining on the page.
Eat your vegetables. It’s advice anyone’s grandmother might be accused of giving too often.
But a new study is providing fresh evidence that the age-old diet tip is sound.
A 29 year look at the eating habits of 12,168 middle-aged adults in the US published in the Journal of the American Heart Association earlier this month suggests that the plant munchers have a leg up over animal gobblers when it comes to long-term health.
“People should eat more vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fruits, legumes and fewer animal-based foods,” study author Casey Rebholz said in a release.
The museum was the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, in Portland. The occasion was a rally organized by the Proud Boys, an all-male group that exalts “Western values” and promotes Islamophobia. Some of them were connected to the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, two years ago, at which a right-wing marcher drove his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing a woman named Heather Heyer.
MSM No Longer Cares to Be Unbiased, Calls Nationalist Groups “Fascists”
The few hundred fascists who rallied in Portland, Oregon, last weekend unwittingly raised over $35,000 for the defense of Latino immigrants, anti-fascist activists announced Saturday.
For each member of the assorted far-right and white nationalist groups who attended the Aug. 17 rally, anti-fascists had pledged to donate a nickel, a dime or other small amounts of money to an Oregon Latino rights organization called Causa, which helps defend undocumented people from deportation.
The fundraiser was organized by Popular Mobilization (or PopMob), a Portland coalition of leftist and anti-fascist groups. In a statement Saturday, PopMob announced that in the runup to the rally, donation pledges “flooded in from all over the country, and even as far away as the UK, ranging from two cents to five dollars a fascist.”
An insane guest on CNN absurdly claimed that President Trump killed more people than the 20th century’s most notorious homicidal dictators.
Psychiatrist Allen Francis told CNN host Brian Stelter that Trump is responsible for more deaths than the millions slaughtered by Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.
“Trump is as destructive of person in this century as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were in the last century,” Francis said on – ironically – “Reliable Sources” Sunday. “He may be responsible for many more millions of deaths than they were.”

Increasing acts of political violence committed by the far-right have put the conservative propaganda machine in desperation mode, as right-wing talking heads and politicians attempt to deflect their extremism problem by pinning anything they can on the antifa boogeyman.
Over the weekend, members of the far-right extremist gang Proud Boys were celebrating a rally they held in Portland, Oregon, as a win, largely due to a tweet by President Donald Trump, who said he was watching the event as he considered “naming ANTIFA an ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.”
“Go look at President Trump’s Twitter,” Florida Proud Boy leader Joe Biggs told The Oregonian. “He talked about Portland, said he’s watching antifa. That’s all we wanted. We wanted national attention, and we got it. Mission success.”
After 51 Muslim worshipers were gunned down in Christchurch, New Zealand, the country’s parliament swiftly moved to ban military-style semiautomatic weapons, assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, and then introduced an ambitious buy-back program. Now Joe Biden has announced that as president he would do what few political leaders have dared to consider – permanently reinstate the ban on assault-style weapons that was in place across the nation from 1994 until 2004.
Whether Biden – or any president – could succeed in pushing through such a measure remains highly doubtful. But even assuming a herculean exercise of political will, it is far from clear that such a ban could survive review by the supreme court. That is the shocking upshot of the court’s radically new second amendment jurisprudence.
Gun control advocates rallied across the U.S. this weekend to demand legislative action from Congress.
The Recess Rallies, which are happening while Congress is in recess, were held in the wake of two high-profile mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. They were scheduled in more than 100 locations in all 50 states on both Saturday and Sunday.
The effort was organized in conjunction with a nationwide Weekend of Action held by the Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and Students Demand Action. Advocates are rallying for background checks on all gun sales and strong extreme risk or Red Flag legislation, which would “temporarily prevent someone in crisis from accessing firearms,” especially if they pose a danger to themselves or others.
Protesters across the country, including Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Baltimore, turned out to call for change. Presidential hopeful and El Paso native Beto O’Rourke made a stop on the campaign trail in Little Rock, AR, local affiliate KATV reported, to join the rally and call for tougher gun laws.
FAKE NEWS: MSM Claims Americans Finally Turning Against NRA
President Trump early Sunday lashed out at The New York Times over what he views as unfair coverage, this time claiming that it is engaging in a “racism witch hunt.”
“The Failing New York Times, in one of the most devastating portrayals of bad journalism in history, got caught by a leaker that they are shifting from their Phony Russian Collusion Narrative (the Mueller Report & his testimony were a total disaster), to a Racism Witch Hunt,” Trump tweeted, apparently referencing a leaked transcript of a meeting the newspaper’s executive editor, Dean Baquet, held with staff last week.
“‘Journalism’ has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke,” he continued, before claiming that the “the public is aware!”
