    Arizona Republican U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters hammered the Biden administration and Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) for their handling of the southern border crisis in a recent Breitbart News Saturday interview. Masters criticized President Joe Biden’s decision to end Title 42 — a public health order that allows border officials to deport migrants suspected of carrying a communicable disease — noting that it could lead to an unprecedented surge of illegal aliens crossing the border. “Some of the best estimates are that illegal crossing could double, they could triple. Some people think they could quadruple,” Masters said. “This is a radical open borders agenda. They are hell-bent on getting as many illegals here as possible. Title 42, you know, we shouldn’t have to rely on it, but it was a clever use of this old public health law that the Trump administration found to keep things stable, and Biden just wants to rip away.” A court filing revealed more than 221,000 foreign nationals were apprehended at the border in March 2021, with the Biden administration releasing more than 80,000...
    The “American Dream” isn’t dead, but according to a third of small business owners (31 percent), it needs to change. In a new survey of 1,000 small business owners, many think certain aspects of the traditional American Dream should be considered part of the past — such as owning a car and a home (37 percent) and believing in the free market (31 percent). 1Many people think certain aspects of the traditional American Dream should be considered part of the past, including owning a home Instead, respondents are now focusing on helping their businesses thrive as part of their “new” American dream – which 71 percent said can be achieved through sacrifice, risk-taking and hard work. Results from the survey, commissioned by Xero, a global small business platform, and conducted by OnePoll, found nearly two in three (65 percent) believe they currently live the American dream. Meanwhile, 72 percent said there’s a difference between having a “personal” American dream and a dream for their business. Although 38 percent of respondents said running their own businesses is part of their personal American dream, nearly as many agree that being self-made (32 percent) and providing for their families (30 percent) are also part of their life plans.

    BOSTON (CBS) – People have more options now to mask or not than they have in nearly two years. The debate over mask mandates has been a contentious one across the country, with the ability to choose being the main sticking point for those against wearing them.

I am keeping it on.” Many commuters WBZ-TV spoke with Wednesday said they want to continue wearing their masks in crowded public spaces like the T. “One-way masking” is the phrase coined to describe when one person wearing a mask is surrounded by others who are not.

    As the war in Ukraine drags on, it becomes increasingly apparent that one of the major parameters is disinformation. For example, the attitude inside Russia seems to be that Vladimir Putin's military operations are justified because Putin is protecting "the fatherland" from neo-Nazis. Pro-Putin propaganda has been disseminated throughout the world; It has infected Republican legislators. Russia: In the United States, a narrative has circulated suggesting the war will end when Russians rise up and depose Putin. Nonetheless, Russian opinion polls suggest that Putin is very popular because the average Russian believes that Putin is protecting "the fatherland." A recent Levada poll discussed in Newsweek "Showed that approval of Putin's actions increased from 69 percent in January to 83 percent in March." (Statista confirms that within Russia, Putin has strong approval ratings.) Nonetheless, a recent academic study discussed in the Washington Post indicates that Putin's ratings are fragile: "These findings suggest that much of Putin’s support is based on perceptions that he is popular. Without that perception, Putin’s popularity fades." The Russian media has a consistent message: "Ukraine is a...
    Almost as many Americans are getting news on the Russia-Ukraine conflict from social media as they are from television networks, according to new data by the National Research Group (NGR) exclusively provided to The Hill. The poll of Americans aged 13 to 54 found that 58 percent of respondents were learning about the conflict through social media, compared to 65 percent who were getting their news from TV. The survey, which was conducted from March 7 to March 20, was distributed to volunteer samples in 12 countries: the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, Japan, South Korea, China, Mexico and Brazil. “The vast majority of people in these countries are following the news coming out of Russia and Ukraine,” said Matt Blong, senior vice president of global tracking at NGR. Both globally and in the U.S., 18-24 year olds received news from social media at higher rates than from television. “Those 18-24 year olds, you're seeing they are more socially active on social media and that's the content that they trust, for better or for worse, the opinions of...
    AMERICAN parents have shared top tips for keeping their children safe on social media - with many flat-out preventing their kids from setting up accounts. Six in 10 American parents believe children under 13 should not be on social media, per a recent OnePoll survey. 1American parents revealed their top tips for keeping their children safe on social mediaCredit: Getty A recent study asked 2,000 parents of kids ages five to 18 about their views on social media, particularly when it comes to their own children. While nearly half of all respondents have allowed their kids to access social media (47 percent), another 31 percent don’t allow them to create accounts on any platform. Of those whose kids are already online, 69 percent think their children are mature enough to be there, and 60 percent say it’s important for them to feel connected. However, most parents said they have a strict curfew when it comes to their child’s social media consumption (88 percent).

    The surge of Omicron cases striking much of America has left many hospitals nationwide without the staff necessary to treat patients. According to a report by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), of 4,294 hospitals in overseas, 975, or 22.7 percent, do not have enough nurses and doctors to meet current patient volume, Fox News reports. The agency also reports that 79 percent of inpatient beds nationwide are currently occupied, with 21 percent of best being used by Covid patients.  While those figures are not quite crisis level, it means that many facilities do not have the necessary staff to deal with virus surges because of how hard the virus is hitting its staff. Fearing these kinds of circumstances, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated guidance late last year to allow Covid positive health care workers to return to work more quickly.  Around 23% of U.S. hospitals are currently facing critical staffing shortages as many doctors and nurses are out due to Covid infection. Last month, the CDC revised its guidelines to allow health care professionals in facilities...
    Exponentially more Hispanic voters in the United States find the term “Latinx” offensive than actually use it themselves, according to a new poll from Bendixen & Amandi International. An overwhelming majority of survey respondents said they identify themselves as Hispanic, Latino or Latina, with 89% of those polled choosing one of those three options. Another 8% said “something else,” while just two percent of respondents said they identify as Latinx. The poll was conducted among 800 registered voters of Hispanic origin from Nov. 17-21. The margin of error was 3.46 points. “The numbers suggest that using Latinx is a violation of the political Hippocratic Oath, which is to first do no electoral harm. Why are we using a word that is preferred by only 2%, but offends as many as 40% of those voters we want to win?” —@AmandiOnAir https://t.co/w5uzYBxT3n — Marc Caputo (@MarcACaputo) December 6, 2021 There was not a significant generational divide, either. The highest rate of Latinx usage was in 18-29 year-olds, but still only 4% within that age group said they use the term. (RELATED:...
    Nearly twice as many Israelis prefer opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister over current Prime Minister Naftali Bennett or his Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid, a new poll showed Monday. Forty-five percent of respondents to the Channel 12 poll said they would like Netanyahu to be prime minister, while only 25 percent preferred Bennett and 24 percent Lapid. The Bennett-Lapid government, which has a premiership sharing deal, has so far avoided major scandal for the six months it has been in power – despite comprising right-wing, centrist and leftist parties. Yet Israelis still prefer Netanyahu, who was unable to cobble together a coalition following the last election. Outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped his likely replacement, Naftali Bennett, in a speech to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, on Sunday afternoon, prior to the vote to confirm the new Israeli government. https://t.co/eMsY9m4iPz — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) June 13, 2021 Forty-three percent of respondents prefer the previous government led by Netanyahu, while 36 percent preferred the current government. However, the poll also showed that if elections were to be held today, Netanyahu...
    More than 1.6 million Americans were vaccinated against COVID-19 on Thursday, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Cyrus Shahpar, the White House's Covid data director, tweeted on Thursday afternoon that it was the 'largest single-day increase in total doses reported administered in over four months.'  Nearly one million - 988,000 - were people receiving boosters doses, more than double the 412,000 Americans who got their first shot, Shahpar said.   Covid booster shots are now widely available to Americans after approval from regulators last week, and it seems more fully vaccinated people are getting jabbed at this point than unvaccinated people. More than 1.6 million Americans received a shot of a COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday, the most in four months  More than double, 988,000, received a booster than got their first dose, 412,000, as the vaccinated have more demand for the jab than the unvaccinated As of Friday morning, the CDC reports that 221 million Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, about two-thirds of the population. More than 191 million...
    Tens of thousands of home healthcare workers in New York who refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine are facing being fired as the state's new mandate goes into effect on Friday. About 250,000 people who work at assisted living homes, hospice care, treatment centers and AIDS home care programs, have until midnight to prove they have received at least one dose of the vaccine or risk termination. Some industry representatives say as many as one in five still haven't gotten their first shot - meaning 50,000 could lose their jobs. The mandate, put in place by Gov Kathy Hochul, comes on top of another mandate, implemented last month, that covered hospital and nursing home workers.   A new Covid vaccine mandate goes into effect in New York on Friday for home health care workers such as employees of hospice care and treatment centers with employees having until midnight to  prove they have been vaccinated or risk being fired.

    A maker of COVID-19 rapid tests is recalling thousands of kits due to a high rate of false positives. Australian manufacturer Ellume announced over the weekend it was recalling about  200,000 of its at-home tests that are approved for use in the U.S. The test was believed to be a game changer because it comes with a nasal swab analyzer that connects to an app on users' smartphones and can provide results within 15 minutes. But as many as one-quarter of all results could be telling people they're infected with COVID-19 when they actually are not.  Australian manufacturer Ellume said it is recalling nearly 200,000 of its COVID-19 rapid test kits (pictured), which were the first completely at-home kit to received FDA authorization  Officials from the company said one of the kits' raw materials is causing test results to come back as false positives. Pictured: COVID-19 home test kits are seen inside the Ellume laboratory in Brisbane, Australia, February 2021 According to The New York Times, the 200,000 kits account for 5.6 percent of the 3.5 million kits Ellume has sent...
    08/25/2021 at 4:03 PM CEST The summer of 2021 is on the way to becoming one of the most devastating in recent years for Spanish forest areas. The number of large fires is increasing dramatically. As of August 15, more than 46,400 hectares have been burned, not including the 22,000 from the Avila fire, so in reality they would exceed 68,000 hectares. Since the beginning of the year and until August 15, a total of 15 large forest fires have been recorded, those that exceed 500 hectares in area, according to data from the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, which still do not include fire Cepeda de la Mora-Navalacruz (Ávila), the most devastating in recent times. The figure doubles the 7 large forest fires that were registered in the same period of the previous year and it also exceeds the 11 claims of this type that were recorded on average in the last ten years, reports Europa Press. With these figures, the year 2021 is already the third with the highest number...
    Americans who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 are much more likely to infected or hospitalized with the virus, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds. The report found that unvaccinated residents of Los Angeles had five times as many cases of Covid and 29 times as many hospitalizations than fully vaccinated people. What's more, if fully vaccinated people were hospitalized, they were much less likely to be admitted to intensive care units or placed on mechanical ventilation. The CDC team says the findings show the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, even as the Indian 'Delta' variant became the dominant strain in the U.S. A new CDC study looked at more than 43,000 confirmed infections in Los Angeles between May 1 and July 25. Pictured: Nurse Kim Dimaunahan Telemetry Oncology (left) checks the blood sugar level of Covid positive patient Jorge Hernandez, 64, inside Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance, California, July 30  COVID-19 incidence rate was 315.1 per 100,000 people for unvaccinated people compared to 63.8 per 100,000 for the vaccinated...

    Grant Atkinson, The Western Journal May 7, 2021 0 Comments During the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrat Joe Biden ran largely on the promise that he would handle the COVID-19 pandemic better than then-President Donald Trump. However, a new analysis of unemployment numbers reveals the states that voted for Biden mishandled the pandemic compared with the pro-Trump states. “Between February and December of last year, states that went for Biden saw the total number of people working drop an average of 6.2 percent, versus a 2.5 percent decline in those voting for the Republican,” the Daily Mail reported. Every one of the 13 states that saw the lowest decline in employment is strongly Republican. Alaska even saw its employment increase by 0.7 percent in that time span, and Utah’s employment increased by 0.3 percent. Democrats would argue that decreasing the death rate from the coronavirus was more important than maintaining jobs, which is why they had no problem destroying the economies in their states. However, the draconian restrictions in many blue states were no more effective in decreasing the death...
    More On: us border A tree-for-all: Mexican prez planting seeds for citizenship plan Ted Cruz mocks VP Kamala Harris saying her ‘GPS got confused’ Kamala Harris to meet virtually with Mexican president amid border crisis Biden forgives Trump’s fines on illegal immigrants who refused deportation Three times as many Americans say they believe security at the US-Mexico border is worse under President Biden than it was under former President Donald Trump, according to a new poll released Sunday. About 45 percent of Americans said they agreed that the situation at the southern border is worse-off than it was two years ago, the Fox News poll found. Thirty-three percent said it was about the same, while 15 percent believe it is better. The assessment stands in stark contrast to when the same poll in 2018 found that only 15 percent of Americans said they believe security at the border had become worse under Trump when compared to two years prior. The latest poll surveyed around 1,000 registered voters between April 18 and April 21. A surge of migrants has overwhelmed...
    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — Working from home may not just be a pandemic perk. Instead, Californians are embracing the new way of life and hope it could be a permanent post even after COVID restrictions are lifted, according to a new survey released Monday by the University of Southern California. “I’m done with the commute,” said Dana Bordona. “We’re not going back. They turned our office into a hub so we’re pretty much permanent from home, but I’m OK with that.” READ MORE: At Least 1 Dead In Fatal Collision In Fremont Bordona, who is an analyst, will no longer have to make the daily two-hour commute to work. In fact, 42 percent of full-time remote workers surveyed would rather continue to work remotely five days per week. While 21 percent said they’re okay going into the office one or two days a week after the pandemic is over, including Bordona’s husband, Jeff. “It’s good to go into the office maybe once or twice a week to just connect with folks,” he said. Then there are those who want to...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — The Washington Nationals still haven’t started their season because of a COVID-19 outbreak, and there are also 20-plus coronavirus cases for the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks – including the dangerous P.1 variant first found in Brazil. Meanwhile, both Chicago Major League Baseball teams are offering vaccines to their players.

Major League Baseball has a goal of vaccinating 85 percent of the league. Players won’t be required to get the vaccine, but teams with 85 percent vaccination will be rewarded with some eased health and safety protocols. “Some guys have been vaccinated. I think the situation that we have now is that some guys will be getting vaccinated hopefully this week. I’m certainly encouraging guys to do it, and I think kind of as I said earlier, like once guys are fully vaccinated, that takes away a lot of the close-contact situations that we have now, and...
    One in three Americans know somebody who died from coronavirus over the last 10 months, a new poll suggests. Conducted by Axios-Ipsos, the survey found that 33 percent of adults have a loved one or acquaintance who passed from COVID-19 between April 24, 2020 and February 22, 2021. This is three points higher than the number who reported the same thing in late December, just before Christmas, and twice as high as the around 15 percent who did in early June.  It comes on the heels of news on Monday that the U.S. COVID death toll surpassed 500,000, which is more than the number of Americans killed in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War combined.  The U.S. has about four percent of the global population, but accounts for nearly 20 percent of all deaths from the virus. A new poll has found that 33% of U.S adults have lost a family member, a friend or an acquaintance to COVID-19 About 35% believe the death toll is higher than what is being reported while 31%...
