    (CNN)CNN published an opinion piece on Feb. 10 with the headline, "Plant trees, sure. But to save the climate, we should also cut them down." This piece omitted some vital facts and science. Danna SmithWhile the piece did not call for a broad expansion of logging, I think it's important for readers to understand these facts.Industrial logging and wood production are major drivers of climate disruption. The US is the world's largest consumer and producer of wood products, according to data from 2015. Due to the intensity of logging, the rate and scale of forest destruction in the Southeastern US is estimated to be four times that of South American rainforests. When a forest is logged, carbon that would otherwise have been stored in the forest is emitted. Wood does store carbon even after it is chopped down, but much of that is lost into the atmosphere in the...
    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) criticized President Biden on Tuesday, questioning why the U.S. is requiring international travelers to undergo a coronavirus test and wield negative results but allowing illegal aliens at the U.S.-Mexico border to enter the country without testing. “Can’t fly into USA w/o showing negative test for virus but Pres Biden will let ppl who illegally walked across the border do so w/o testing,” the 87-year-old lawmaker said. “Is that protecting our citizens?”: Can’t fly into USA w/o showing negative test for virus but Pres Biden will let ppl who illegally walked across the border do so w/o testing. Is that protecting our citizens? — ChuckGrassley (@ChuckGrassley) February 9, 2021 Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it would require international travelers entering the United States, including U.S. citizens, to present proof of a negative coronavirus test prior to boarding flights en route...
    Christopher Krebs is the former director of the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). He was appointed by Trump. Then, couple of weeks after the 2020 election, Trump fired him, after Krebs told the world that Donald Trump was just lying about election fraud. Krebs has subsequently had to, like many other American officials both conservative and liberal, deal with the threats to his life and his family’s welfare that are stewed by the continuing attempts by Trump and others to overthrow America’s democracy. Today, Krebs is in front of Republican Sen. Ron Johnson’s newest b.s. tribunal circus, supposedly looking at the irregularities of the 2020 election. The entire project is one that hopes to endear those angry Trump cult members to the Republican Party that is trying to drop him while also figuring out ways to undermine the Biden administration and our democracy. It’s real dirty stuff. Johnson and other Republicans are trying to thread...
    0WITH all of us facing uncertainties and challenges that we’ve never had to deal with before, it’s a difficult time for the UK’s mental health. We’ve got loads of tips, and we’re all in this together – let’s get started. Here’s our five steps to a healthy mind… 6 Are you prioritising your mental health during these uncertain times? Talk about your worries 6 Getting your worries off your chest will help People sometimes say “stay strong” during difficult times, but bottling things up can badly affect your mental health. “Our emotions help us make sense of what’s going on, and we can’t just jump to coping without processing what’s happening,” says Dr Jessamy Hibberd, a clinical psychologist and author of The Imposter Cure. “Talk to others about how you’re feeling, and take some time to reflect on the good stuff, too. If you’re talking to a friend,...
    (WJZ)- It’s hard to find any fault with the Ravens performance through two weeks of the season. At 2-0 with decisive wins over the rival Browns and Houston Texans, John Harbaugh’s group is off to a strong start. But, if there has been one area of concern so far, it’s been the number of hits opposing defenses have gotten on quarterback Lamar Jackson. Through two games, the Ravens have given up six sacks, tied for 5th-most in the league with several other teams. Jackson has been hurried 10 times according to Pro Football Reference’s stats and while he’s largely avoided getting hit on those hurries, he’s been pressured on 26.7% of his dropbacks this season. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley told reporters this week that the line is well aware that needs to change as the season goes on. “It’s never as good as you think, it’s never as bad as...
    Nuclear fallout THE nuclear option of a new two-week shutdown would be a catastrophe for pubs, restaurants and hotels. We are far from sure it will work. The Government had better be right. The Sun has been sceptical about ­rising Covid cases. They have so far been largely down to increased tests and are mainly robust young people. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 3A two-week shutdown would be a catastrophe for pubs and restaurants, we cannot shut our economy down every couple of monthsCredit: PA:Press Association Even so it is hard to ignore the sudden huge leap today alongside the steady rise in hospitalisations and deaths, the two far more crucial statistics. The latter total is still a mere fraction of the terrible numbers in April. And hospitals have ample spare capacity. But both measures are increasing relentlessly and cannot be...
    The establishment media and Democrats are making examples of Patricia and Mark McCloskey to intimidate the rest of us from protecting our own home. By now, almost everyone is familiar with what happened. Late last month, as Americans watched in horror as the left-wing terrorists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa turned one anti-police protest after another into a full-blown riot, and did so with lightning speed, Mark and Patricia McCloskey were made famous when videos of them protecting their St. Louis home exploded on social media. According to the couple, they were getting ready to eat dinner in their large home, one they spent decades refurbishing, when a mob of angry demonstrators, who had been marching along a public street, decided to take their protest to Portland Place, a private street where the McCloskeys’ Renaissance palazzo-style home is located. The McCloskeys say the mob broke down a gate to...
    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy introduced legislation on Thursday meant to shield statues targeted by protesters, by preventing state and local governments that do not protect monuments from receiving federal grants. McCarthy, R-Calif., rolled out the bill, titled the “Protect America’s Statues Act of 2020,” with Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Sam Graves, R-Mo., as monuments and statues in cities across the nation have been targeted for vandalism amid ongoing protests and unrest. TRUMP THREATENS 'AUTOMATIC 10 YEARS IN PRISON' FOR ANYONE HARMING STATUES: 'IF THEY EVEN TRY' “Public monuments are indispensable because they tell the American story. It is wrong to erase our history,” McCarthy said in a statement, saying: “We should be learning from it.” “Instead, leftwing mobs in cities across the country are destroying statues of General Grant, St. Serra, Christopher Columbus, and abolitionists,” he continued. “This is lawlessness in its purest and most unacceptable form.” He added: “My...
    In a Sunday interview on “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) shared his reaction to reports that Russian intelligence offered Afghan militants bounties to kill U.S. soldiers, and the White House knew about it but did nothing. Moulton, a former Marine, said he would like to see President Donald Trump “stop acting like a traitor to our troops” and quit being “more interested in protecting” Russia President Vladimir Putin. “I would like to see the commander in chief stop acting like a traitor to our troops and be more interested [sic] in protecting Putin and Russia than protecting our servicemen and women who are out there on the front lines,” Moulton proclaimed. “Of course, there is a lot that needs to be done because the president is unwilling to do that because he’s been unwilling to stand up for our troops because he’s unwilling to confront Russia. In Congress, we have...
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell underscored the importance of wearing face coverings on the Senate floor Monday. "We must have no stigma, none, about wearing masks when we leave our homes & come near other people,” said McConnell, R-Ky. “Wearing simple face coverings is not about protecting ourselves, it is about protecting everyone we encounter." “In fact, the more we dislike the pain and suffering caused by the strict stay-home guidelines a few months ago, the happier we should be to take reasonable small steps every day to ensure our country can stay on offense against the virus,” McConnell added. He said that until there is a vaccine to protect against COVID-19, Americans must “settle into a middle ground between unsustainable emergency lockdowns and ordinary life as we enjoyed it.” McConnell’s remarks followed a warning by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar who told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday...
    Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., appeared Saturday on the "Fox Report," ripping local Democrat leaders for allowing "lawlessness" while commending President Trump for his executive order protecting monuments. "Thank God that the president did that executive order, which basically says we have to protect our federal monuments and also would take away funding from state and local governments that don't protect the statues," Lesko told anchor Jon Scott. "Do you see some of these cities which are a Democrat -un, are just letting lawlessness go on, whether it's autonomous towns or toppling statues or defacing statues? This has to stop." TRUMP ISSUES WARNING AMID VANDALISM, EFFORT TO TOPPLE ANDREW JACKSON STATUE  Trump announced Friday that he signed an executive order to protect American monuments, memorials and statues and threatened those who try to pull them down with “long prison terms.” The new order enforces laws prohibiting the desecration of public monuments,...
    On Monday night, we did something we don't do very often. We spent the entire first block of the show on a single topic. We told you about Black Lives Matter. We told you what Black Lives Matter believes. We told you what the group plans to do to our country as they amass unprecedented amounts of power. The segment went on for nearly 20 minutes, and by the standards of this business, it was probably way too long. There was a lot to say. BRITISH ACTIVISTS BEHIND NBC NEWS REPORT PUSHING GOOGLE TO DEMONETIZE THE FEDERALIST But in the end, a lot of people saw it. The show turned out to be the most-watched hour of primetime television in the country on Monday. It out-rated everything else -- cable and broadcast news, entertainment and sports. We never talk about ratings, and we're definitely not telling you this to brag about...
