Three people killed and two wounded at Kansas City nightclub shooting

Three killed in Kansas shooting

Three people were killed and two more were wounded in a shooting at a Missouri nightclub early Sunday, marking one of at least three mass shootings in the US this weekend.

The killings at the Klymax Lounge in Kansas City, Missouri, and a separate shooting in Birmingham, Alabama, helped bring the number of mass shootings in the US so far this year to about 230, data from the Gun Violence Archive shows.

Authorities did not immediately publicly release the names of the victims in the Kansas City shooting. However, on social media, friends of one Jason McConnell identified him as one of the victims.


Mayor pushes plan to force homeless New Yorkers with mental illness to seek help

Adams: There are more Jordan Neeleys out there.

New York mayor Eric Adams has warned that there are “more Jordan Neelys out there”, invoking the name of the unhoused man who was killed on the subway earlier in May as the Democratic mayor pushed his idea to force people with mental illness to access help.

In an interview with MSNBC on Sunday, Adams called a dearth of such services – particularly for the city’s unhoused population – “a very real issue”.

Neely, 30, died after 24-year-old Daniel Penny put him in a chokehold. Penny, who previously served in the marines, has been charged with manslaughter despite his claims of self-defense in a case that has inflamed racial tensions nationwide because he is white and Neely was Black.


Dodgers fail miserably, crumble under pressure by disinviting Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Before we discuss the remarkably cowardly move by the Los Angeles Dodgers, where they crumbled under pressure and disinvited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence from their Pride Night on June 16, we need to look at who these Sisters are, and why what the Dodgers did was so disgraceful.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are civil rights activists. They've been in existence in California since the late 1970s and have since expanded to other areas of the country. When much of America either ignored, or discriminated against, people with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s, the Sisters brought awareness to the suffering of the gay community while many political leaders, including President Ronald Reagan, did absolutely nothing.

They are brave, they are kind, they are heroes.


Ukraine war: Kyiv rejects Wagner claim over Bakhmut

Ukraine war: Kyiv rejects Wagner claim

Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated the Wagner paramilitary group, after it claimed to have captured the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut.

Wagner founder Yevgeny Prigozhin - posing with some of his fighters - made the claim in a video posted to social media on Saturday.

Ukraine's deputy defence minister rejected the claim, but admitted the situation in the city was "critical".

One of the war's bloodiest battles, fighting has raged since August.

Abortion battles fuel push against ballot measures

Abortion battle fuels push against ballot measures

After a string of defeats at the ballot in red and purple states in the 2022 election, a growing number of GOP-controlled state legislatures and anti-abortion groups are pushing back.

They are working to restrict or even ban citizen-led ballot initiatives, which have been used by progressive groups to bypass conservative lawmakers.

Some of the proposals set new requirements for signature gathering, making it more difficult to put a question on the ballot. Others would raise the passage threshold to 60 percent or higher, rather than a simple majority.

The pushback has been building for several years, as voters tried to circumvent GOP opposition to policies like Medicaid expansion, marijuana legalization, family leave and mandatory minimum wage.


NAACP issues travel warning in Florida: the state ‘has become hostile to Black Americans’

NAACP issues travel warninig for Florida

The NAACP issued a formal travel advisory for Florida on Saturday, saying the state has become “hostile to Black Americans” under Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) leadership.

“On a seeming quest to silence African-American voices, the Governor and the State of Florida have shown that African Americans are not welcome in the State of Florida,” the travel advisory reads.

“Due to this sustained, blatant, relentless and systemic attack on democracy and civil rights, the NAACP hereby issues a travel advisory to African Americans, and other people of color regarding the hostility towards African Americans in Florida,” the group added.

The advisory points to several of DeSantis’s controversial policies, including legislation he signed on Monday to prohibit colleges from spending public funds on diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.



Mother of girl who died in US border patrol custody says agents ignored her

Mother of girl who died at border speaks out

The mother of an eight-year-old girl who died in US border patrol custody said on Friday that agents repeatedly ignored pleas to hospitalize her medically fragile daughter as she felt pain in her bones, struggled to breathe and was unable to walk.

Agents said her daughter’s diagnosis of influenza did not require hospital care, Mabel Alvarez Benedicks said in an emotional phone interview. They knew the girl had a history of heart problems and sickle cell anemia.

“They killed my daughter, because she was nearly a day and a half without being able to breathe,” Alvarez Benedicks said. “She cried and begged for her life and they ignored her. They didn’t do anything for her.”

Martin Amis, era-defining British novelist, dies aged 73

Martin Amis, dead at 73

Martin Amis, the influential author of era-defining novels including Money and London Fields, and the memoir Experience, has died at the age of 73 at his home at Lake Worth in Florida . His wife, Isabel Fonseca, said that the cause was cancer of the oesophagus.

Amis was among the celebrated group of novelists including Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan and Julian Barnes, whose works defined the British literary scene in the 1980s.

His 1984 novel Money was named by Robert McCrum in the Guardian as among the 100 best novels written in English. Money, wrote McCrum, was a “zeitgeist book that remains one of the dominant novels of the 1980s”.


New York Christian university fires two staff for including pronouns in emails

Houghton University

A New York Christian university terminated two employees for putting pronouns in their respective email signatures, these former workers allege, according to reports.

Raegan Zelaya and Shua Wilmot, who were residence hall directors at Houghton University, said that administrators told them to take the words “she/her” and “he/him” off of their email signatures.

The university, Zelaya and Wilmot alleged, claimed their inclusion of pronouns violated a new school policy, the New York Times reported. Zelaya and Wilmot refused to remove their pronouns and were fired, several weeks before the semester’s conclusion.

TVNL Comment:  What are these people so afraid of?  Pronouns, or the people supposedly created by the God they so fervently worship?
