    The stretch of green in front of the Lincoln Memorial was covered by a crowd stretching to the reflecting pool on the National Mall to protest the Biden administration’s embattled COVID-19 vaccine mandates. “Freedoms and mandates don't really go hand in hand. We’ve all seen the pandemic, we can all make the decision that’s safe enough for us,” said Stephanie, 36, from Crownsville, Maryland. The crowd was rife with “Don’t tread on me” flags and creative signs decrying vaccine passports, mask mandates, and mandatory COVID-19 vaccines for school-age children. Hatred for Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert and adviser on the pandemic to President Joe Biden, was on full display. Nick, 35, from West Virginia, held up a sign that in large, colored-in marker read, “Fire Fauci.” “I'm not against vaccines. I'm just against mandating them. We have freedom of choice here in this country, or at least we should, at least that's what we believe, and I really think that should be upheld,” said Nick, who said he has been...

    Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin caused a stir when he signed an executive order lifting the mask mandate at schools with the order’s fate landing in the courts. But there’s been some mixed messaging on what parents and their kids should do in the meantime as the order is in legal limbo. Under Youngkin’s administration, the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Department of Education put out a joint statement pushing for personal responsibility instead of mask mandates for everyone. More Virginia News Read More: Parents of Fairfax Co. school children weigh in on Gov. Youngkin lifting mask mandate “Foundational prevention strategies in schools, such as testing and improving ventilation, combined with common-sense actions of personal responsibility, such as staying home when sick, getting vaccinated, and handwashing, can help reduce transmission in schools,” the statement reads. The guidance also mentioned that children are at a low-risk for hospitalization and death. “While children can be infected with COVID-19, experience illness, and spread the virus to others, cases in healthy children are usually mild with a low risk of developing...
    'I want kids to do this intentionally, to think that this is a requirement of living almost, that trying to figure out how they will make a better world should be a part of the charge of their living,' said U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. "Whom have I helped today?" That's the question Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor tells kids she asks herself every night before she goes to sleep. Her new children's book, "Just Help! How to Build a Better World," challenges kids to ask how they will help, too. The book comes out Tuesday and is Sotomayor's third book for young readers. In the book, children help in a variety of ways: sending care packages to American soldiers overseas, recycling plastic bags, cleaning up a park, donating toys to a children's hospital and encouraging others to vote.

    Teaching the next generation about the importance of treating all animals equally starts young. Whether the child is growing up in a vegan family, or if they just want to learn more about how to love the creatures around them better, there are plenty of colorful and kindly-worded books to teach young ones about veganism.  Here are a few of our favorite children’s books about veganism for your next bedtime story.  1. That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals: A Book About Vegans, Vegetarians, and All Living Things – Ruby Roth Best suited for children between the ages of six and ten, That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals illustrates the routines and wishes of a variety of animals (chickens, turkeys, cows, etc) then compares it to the unpleasant reality many of them deal with when living in factory farms. The book stresses how important it is to love animals – and how difficult it is to simultaneously care for and eat them. It might be a little overwhelming for children under the age of six, so we recommend reading it...
    Jen Cousins, center, with her husband, Matt and their children Noel, 13, Saffron, 12, Milo, 8 and Poppy, 6.Jen Cousins Without a January child tax credit payment, Jen Cousins will have to wait a few extra months to replace the brakes on her minivan, the only car her family of six owns. Cousins, 44, a stay-at-home mom in Orlando, Florida, has been receiving the full credit for each of her four children ages six, eight, twelve and thirteen for the past six months. She's put most of the extra money toward medical expenses – the entire family wears glasses, one child needs special prescription eye drops and speech therapy and soon, her oldest kids will need braces. Her husband, Matt, 43, works as a software architect and has insurance through work, but it only covers him, so the family pays almost $1,000 each month to insure Jen and the kids, she said. Plus, additional out-of-pocket expenses always come up. More from Invest in You:Companies raise perks to repay employees' student loansHere's a financial road map for the rest of the yearBiden...

    Prince Harry has 'reached out to his father' to have 'friendly video calls'  ahead of the Queen's Jubilee, a source has claimed. The Duke of Sussex, 37,   who lives in a $14million mansion in Montecito, California, with his wife Meghan Markle, 40, and their children was expected to come to the UK for the Duke of Edinburgh's memorial service in the spring and the Queen's Jubilee in the summer. However, a  recent row over the Metropolitan Police providing their security has called their return into doubt.  But, the royal is said to have contacted his father for 'friendly chats' and hopes to visit the UK later this year.  'There has been a definite thaw in relations between Harry and Charles. They are on much better terms and have been having friendly chats and video calls.

    An ACLU lawsuit attempting to block an Arkansas law concerning transgender children has picked up support from prominent Hollywood celebrities, including Elliot Page — the star formerly known as Ellen Page — as well as filmmaker Lilly Wachowski and reality TV star Jazz Jennings. The Arkansas law in question seeks to prevent minors from receiving irreversible medical procedures, including hormone therapy and sex change surgery, as well as puberty blockers. It also prevents insurers from covering these procedures for children. Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) vetoed the law last year but the Arkansas legislature overrode the veto. But before it could take effect, the ACLU filed a lawsuit to halt the legislation, claiming such “gender affirming” procedures for kids qualify as “medically necessary health care.” The plaintiffs in Brandt et al. v. Rutledge et al. include four families of transgender minors as well as two doctors. Recently, the ACLU filed an amicus brief with the support of more than 50 individuals, including  Elliot Page, Lilly Wachowski, and Jazz Jennings.

    The superintendent of Virginia’s Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has directed principals in the district to suspend students who do not wear masks in school, according to a whistleblower report provided to Parents Defending Education (PDE). Superintendent Scott Brabrand briefed school district principals Friday on the updated mask policy, which says, “Any student who refuses to wear a face covering while indoors on school property or during FCPS-provided transportation, and who is not otherwise exempt will be precluded access to face-to-face instructional programming until they comply with the requirements of this regulation.” This comes only days after Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) signed an executive order affording parents the right to choose whether or not to mask their children in public schools, which goes into effect Monday. Brabrand’s briefing slideshow shows direct defiance of Youngkin by announcing the continuation of a universal mask mandate six days after the governor’s executive order.

    Homicide was the leading cause of “unexpected” deaths for children in Baltimore over the past five years, according to a city health report. The report said that from 2016 to 2020, 208 minors 17 years old or younger “died in unusual and unexpected circumstances” in the city, with the leading cause of death among that group being homicide. Forty-five children from the ages of seven to 17 were killed by someone outside their family, according to the report, while 24 children from birth to the age of seven were killed by a parent or guardian.  The children who died in "unusual and unexpected circumstances," were predominantly infants and toddlers or 16- or 17-year-olds who were involved in the justice system and struggling in school, according to the report. Children of color made up 90 percent of those who died under such circumstances, per the report, and 66 percent of the children had dealt with a high level of trauma, having been found to have experienced four or more adverse childhood experiences.  The parents and guardians of the children who had died under such circumstances were found to be dealing...
    Parents of children at Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) are weighing in on Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s executive order lifting the mask mandate at schools. “It came as a shock because it’s a public health emergency right now with the surge,” said Ang Golder, a parent of an FCPS elementary school student. With COVID cases still high in Northern Virginia, Golder helped organize a petition that was delivered to the governor’s office on Friday asking that the mask mandate remain in place. She said more than 1,800 FCPS parents have signed it. Another concern is that, without the mandate in place, outbreaks among staff would force students back to virtual learning. Speaking against mask requirements, Eric Hooks, a father of two elementary age FCPS students, said the governor’s decision to lift the mandate is long overdue. “I think it’s really important for them to get used to not wearing masks all the time,” Hooks said. “Especially when they are so young and have been wearing them for such a large portion of their young lives.” He said he plans on...
    poses a much greater risk for myocarditis.Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is criticizing the COVID-19 vaccine while failing to mention key details that change the scope of his assessment. On Friday, January 22, the Kentucky senator appeared on Fox News with Laura Ingraham where he referenced the findings of a study that suggests the vaccine increases the risk of myocarditis – heart muscle inflammation – in adolescent males. However, what the lawmaker failed to also mention is that adverse effects could be far worse if an individual contracts the virus. This part of the discussion began when Ingraham mentioned a proposal in the state of California that would grant children 12 and older the right to get vaccinated for COVID-19 without parental consent. “Senator, we know they’ve wanted to put a wedge between children and their parents for a long time on a lot of issues, but this kind of takes the cake,” Ingraham said. Paul chimed in with a response that appears to have taken Ingraham's remarks out of context. “I believe it’s medical malpractice to force vaccines on...
    Boyd and Mohone On Thursday, January 20, 2022, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes (CEACC) Unit, with the assistance of the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, the GBI Atlanta Regional Office, and the GBI West Metro Regional Drug Enforcement Office, executed two residential search warrants related to separate investigations pertaining to the Sexual Exploitation of Children. The investigations began after the GBI CEACC Unit received numerous independent and unrelated cybertips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Those cybertips involved the possession and/or distribution of explicit child sexual abuse material, commonly referred to as child pornography, which resolved to Newton County, GA. As a result of the search warrant executions, the following individuals were arrested: Taylor Boyd, age 17, of Covington, GA, was charged with five counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children (Possession of Child Pornography) and three counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children (Distribution of Child Pornography) Rondriko Mohone, age 39, of Newborn, GA, was charged with four counts of Sexual...

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) warns mandating vaccines on specific age groups could come back to haunt some institutions because of the risk associated with those age groups. During a Friday appearance on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle,” the Kentucky Republican lawmaker called such mandates “medical malpractice.” “I believe it’s medical malpractice to force vaccines on children, particularly adolescent males,” he said. “We now have the scientific evidence that shows the risk of myocarditis for young males is greater for the vaccine than it is for the disease. We also know that the disease — the death rate is closer to one in a million. We also know that the more you get the vaccine, the higher your risk of myocarditis. So 90% of the myocarditis came with a second vaccine. What do you think it happens when you give them a third vaccine?” “I think universities like Chicago, Princeton, Yale, that are mandating young males get a third vaccine, I think they’re going to be open to liability if any of these boys, these young men or women get myocarditis, and...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared with Laura Ingraham on Fox News Friday night and correctly noted that studies indicate the Covid-19 vaccine increases the risk of myocarditis – an inflammation of the heart muscle – in adolescent males. What he did not mention is that studies also indicate that contracting Covid-19 raises that risk even more. Last week, Joe Rogan did the same thing on his podcast last week. However, in that case, his guest informed him of the data indicating that there is a higher risk of developing myocarditis from Covid than the Covid vaccine. Ingraham noted a proposal in California that would allow children 12 and older to receive the vaccine without parental consent. “Senator, we know they’ve wanted to put a wedge between children and their parents for a long time on a lot of issues, but this kind of takes the cake,” she said. “I believe it’s medical malpractice to force vaccines on children, particularly adolescent males,” said Paul, reacting to a policy Ingraham did not mention. “We now have the scientific evidence that shows the...
    In her "Ingraham Angle" monologue on Friday, host Laura Ingraham contrasted the March for Life with liberals' claims they are working on behalf of the next generation. She played clips of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., claiming her "whole mission in Congress is about the children" and promising to "be prepared to throw a punch for the children" if need be, while Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., touted the importance of hard work on behalf of the youth. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) "Today's liberals claim that everything they're doing on climate change, COVID, the border — even ending the filibuster is because they care about the children," Ingraham said. "But the real truth is very dark and very sinister. The left's core issues — abortion, gender fluidity, the diversity obsession, open borders and COVID mandates, just to name a few, actually add up to a war on children." "From the more than 62 million babies lost to abortion since 1973, to the current fad of glamorizing transgenderism in our schools, we're witnessing a sustained...

    ▶ Watch Video: Some experts say it’s time to upgrade our face masks Local, state and federal officials are investigating a threat made by a parent Thursday evening at a Virginia school board meeting where members voted on whether face masks would continue to be required at the district’s schools. The woman said she “will bring every single gun loaded and ready” after stating that she will not send her children to school wearing a face mask. “I’ll see you all on Monday,” parent Amelia King said at the Page County Public Schools board meeting. Later during the meeting, a school board member read an emailed statement from King where she apologized for her phrasing of the threat. “I in no way meant to imply all guns loaded as in actual firearms, but rather all resources I can muster to make sure that my children get to attend school without masks,” she clarified. “My sincere apologies for my poor choice in words.” Nonetheless, school officials condemned the threat, saying in a statement that the district “does not take these kinds...

    DENVER (CBS4) – After nearly becoming law in Denver, a proposed ban on flavored tobacco products is now being considered as a statewide law. Lawmakers at the state Capitol have proposed legislation that would ban all flavored tobacco and nicotine products, something they say comes as an effort to stop a “health crisis” among younger generations. (credit: CBS) “We see youth using it at a rate that is alarming,” said Representative Kyle Mullica, a democrat representing Adams County. “This has been a gateway to addiction for an entire generation of youth.” The bill (link https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/hb22-1064 ) specifically identifies flavored tobacco as a product which targets children with its advertising. According to co-sponsor Representative Jennifer Bacon, a democrat representing northeast Denver, studies suggest more than a quarter of all high schoolers in Colorado have consumed tobacco or nicotine from a vaping device. “When we say 25% of kids that means this is now a public health issue,” Bacon told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas. Bacon said she believes the flavors in the products not only target...

    With Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ announcement Friday that they had welcomed a new baby daughter via surrogacy, they became the latest celebrity couple to employ medical technology and to hire another woman to carry their child. Chopra, 39, and Jonas, 29, were upfront about the fact that they used a surrogate, probably knowing there would be questions because the actress hadn’t been seen looking pregnant over the past nine months or so, but they weren’t forthcoming with an explanation for why they went that route. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” on Instagram. The Daily Mail reported that the baby was due in April, but was born prematurely at 27 weeks so she’s still in the hospital. The Daily Mail also cited sources who said the couple’s busy schedules “had gotten in the way of their family planning.” The couple, who married in 2018, seemed to anticipate questions about why they used a surrogate, but they sidestepped them. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family,”...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A new report found that homicides were the leading cause of death among children in Baltimore. Mayor Brandon Scott made public the findings of the Child Fatality Review Report on Friday, which examined 208 child fatality cases over the span of five years. Of those, 69 children were murdered, according to the report, which was produced by the Baltimore City Child Fatality Review Team. READ MORE: With Dangerous Wind Chill, Baltimore City Under Code Blue Extreme Cold AlertThe report noted that those children killed were predominantly vulnerable infants and teenagers between the ages of 16 and 17. The teenagers who were killed typically had a history of struggling in school and were involved in the juvenile justice system, according to the report. Additionally, data used to compile the report shows that 90% of the kids who died were children of color, “reflecting the structural racism that is a root cause of the harrowing social and environmental factors underlying child fatality,” the report said. “In the past five years, 208 children died in Baltimore City,” said Shantay Jackson,...
    The World Health Organization (WHO) has lowered its minimum recommended age for the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine from 12 to five years old. The organization now recommends worldwide governments to extend authorization for the Pfizer jab to match its guidance. The recommendation comes after the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunization held a meeting on Wednesday to evaluate the vaccine. They added that this age group is of the lowest priority to get the shot.  Pfizer's shot is already approved for children as young as five years old in America. It is the most popularly used in much of the world, including the U.S. The WHO's recommendation comes despite the little risk young children face from the virus, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting last week that minors made up less than 0.1 percent of deaths from the virus in the U.S. The World Health Organization has dropped its recommended age to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine down to five, from 12. The change comes despite data that children face little risk when they are infected....
