Hi, I'm Catherine Engelbrecht. In 2009, I founded an election integrity organization called True the Vote. Our mission was simple: to recruit and train poll workers to work in elections. So we went to work, and we saw problems. We discovered bad data in voter rolls, non-citizens being registered, false identities being used, and voters being intimidated. It wasn't everywhere, thank goodness. In fact, most volunteers had great experiences when working at the polls. But about 20% of our group witnessed fraud. And that set us off on a journey we could have never imagined.
We started asking questions, doing voter roll research, and submitting our findings to local election officials. We started making waves. And it was then that the Obama Administration marked us for takedown. Over the next two years, I personally went through 23 different audits, investigations, or inquiries from five different federal agencies, including the FBI, DOJ, BATF, OSHA, and the IRS. It was a nightmare that ended only when I stood up, spoke out, and sued the IRS.
Ten years later, I'm here to tell you, the swamp can be beaten, but we have to work together.
They feed on our fear. They rely on our silence. They do not believe we will stand up. And if we do not stand up, they will not stop, and we will lose our country.
So we have to get organized. Now.
We filmed this video to explain the gravity of the forces at play in this election. It's heavy stuff, but it has to be discussed. We must engage, and that means more than just voting. Please watch.
You already know this is not a "normal" election season. There is nothing "normal" about what our country has been put through in the past 8 months.
It's engineered chaos.
We are fighting against revolutionary Marxists who want to burn our country down; we are fighting against globalist billionaires like George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates, purveyors of sickness, social spying, and systemic subversion; we are fighting against foreign countries and international terrorists -- all converging here, now. On your watch. And mine.
The point of this email is to serve as a wake up call -- from one citizen to another. This isn't about a candidate or a party; it is about stopping Marxists from clear cutting our Constitutional Republic to make way for Communism. We can stop them using the synergy around the election, but there is no time to waste.
True the Vote is building a citizen army of election volunteers. We need people who are willing to work, and we need financial resources to continue to scale. If you can help us financially, please do. Most importantly, please join with us. We're all in this together -- and working together, we win.

Mitt Romney Supports Senate Vote on President Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

HANNAH BLEAU22 Sep 202010,992
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) supports a Senate vote on President Trump’s forthcoming Supreme Court nominee, he announced Tuesday morning.
“My decision regarding a Supreme Court nomination is not the result of a subjective test of ‘fairness’ which, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder,” Romney said in a statement. “It is based on the immutable fairness of following the law, which in this case is the Constitution and precedent.”
He echoed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in noting that the “historical precedent of election year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own.”
“The Constitution gives the president the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees,” he continued.
“Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the president’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications,” he added:

Romney’s statement comes on the heels Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who announced Monday evening that he will vote to confirm Trump’s nominee, should he or she meet the criteria.
“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect our Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law,” Gardner said in a statement. “Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm”:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), another key Republican senator in the SCOTUS battle, has indicated that the GOP must maintain the same standard it embraced in 2016.
“I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice [Antonin] Scalia,” Murkowski said in a statement. “We are now even closer to the 2020 election, less than two months out, and I believe the same standard must apply”:
#DELETED: Big Tech’s Efforts to Sway the Election Revealed

BREITBART TECH22 Sep 20203,138
A book being released today by Breitbart News senior tech reporter Allum Bokhari, #DELETED: Big Tech’s Battle to Erase the Trump Movement and Steal the Election, brings together sources from Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other tech companies to expose Big Tech’s hidden efforts to sway the coming election.

“When voters find out what Big Tech companies have done to meddle in the coming election, they’ll be rightly furious” said a Google whistleblower interviewed for the book.

#DELETED can be ordered online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers. It is available in hardcover, digital, and audiobook formats.

Bokhari, author of #DELETED, has spent four years developing a network of whistleblowers in Silicon Valley. In the book, these sources tell the inside story of how the most powerful information technologies ever devised have been weaponized against President Trump and his movement.

Through this network of sources, Bokhari has already published a number of explosive stories exposing Big Tech’s rampant anti-conservative bias, including:

The Google Tape, a 1-hour recording of Google’s co-founders and executives lamenting Trump’s election and vowing not to let it happen again.
“The Good Censor,” a smoking-gun document from within Google admitting to a “shift towards censorship” on the part of major tech companies.
YouTube’s covert search manipulation, in which pro-life and other conservative videos were deliberately downranked in search results in response to complaints from left-wing journalists.
Facebook’s “Hate Agents” list, in which Candace Owens, Brigitte Gabriel, and other top conservatives were added to an internal watchlist that kept track of their political activities for examples of “hate.”
“As editor of Breitbart News, I like scoops, but I love scoops that hold the most powerful people on Earth accountable, and that’s what Allum Bokhari does better than anyone in tech journalism,” said Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of Breitbart News.

“#DELETED is the book the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe don’t want you to read because Allum clearly explains why they pose a dire threat to the republic. This is essential reading on arguably the biggest issue of our time,” added Marlow.

Many conservatives are already aware of the overt censorship — prominent conservatives getting banned by social media platforms, and the president himself having his posts hidden by Twitter.

Less well-known is the covert censorship — subtle tweaks to artificial intelligence algorithms that can suppress entire political movements without them realizing.

Bokhari reports that everything you post online will be scanned (and potentially suppressed) by “hate speech algorithms,” whether you’re aware of it or not.

The book also reveals how elites in progressive advocacy organizations and the media aligned with Big Tech’s most radical employees to push for the censorship of social media platforms, effectively ending an era of unprecedented internet freedom.
Facebook Says It Will Restrict Posting if Elections Cause ‘Unrest’

TOM CICCOTTA22 Sep 20208,291
Facebook announced this week that it may restrict certain aspects of its platform following November’s general election as part of a larger effort to limit social unrest. A spokesperson for Facebook suggested that executives including Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg may censor specific information if they believe it is likely to heighten political tensions following the election.
According to a report by the Financial Times, Facebook announced this week that it will “restrict the circulation of content” following November’s election to curb violence and social unrest. The announcement follows efforts by Facebook to address concerns from those who have alleged that the platform aids in voter suppression and promotes election-misinformation.

 Facebook Head of Global Affairs Nick Clegg said that the company is prepared to adopt a set of policies that are designed to decrease the likelihood of social unrest following November’s election.

“There are some break-glass options available to us if there really is an extremely chaotic and, worse still, violent set of circumstances,” Clegg said.

Clegg claims that Facebook has used similar protocols in other areas of the world to limit “We have acted aggressively in other parts of the world where we think that there is real civic instability and we obviously have the tools to do that [again],” Clegg said.

In Sri Lanka and Myanmar, Facebook limited the reach of posts made by users that violated the platform’s policies. In some cases, it limited post reach for users that had been found by Facebook to have repeatedly posted election-related misinformation even though they did not violate the platform’s hate speech rules.

Clegg admitted that high-ranking Facebook executives will be in charge of content censorship decisions. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will have the authority to censor posts if they believe they are likely to spread misinformation.

“We’ve slightly reorganized things such that we have a fairly tight arrangement by which decisions are taken at different levels [depending on] the gravity of the controversy attached,” Clegg said.

Breitbart News reported this week that Facebook had announced that it would stop promoting health-related groups to users to curb the spread of misinformation. Facebook has recently expressed concern about those who use the platform to spread anti-vaccination content.

Ocasio-Cortez: Impeachment of AG Barr, Trump on the Table to Stop SCOTUS Pick

PAM KEY21 Sep 202020,094
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Sunday night at a joint press conference with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Democrats to buy time with procedural tools which she said could include impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr.

Earlier in the press conference, Ocasio-Cortez said, “We must also commit to using every procedural tool available to us to ensure that we buy ourselves the time necessary. We must commit to allowing and considering and utilizing every single procedural tool available to us again to buy that time.”

Activists with the far-left groups ShutDown DC and the Sunrise Movement gathered early Monday morning at Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) Washington, D.C., residence demanding that President Donald Trump and the Senate not try to fill the Supreme Court seat of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg until after the presidential election.

“DC residents will be fighting for their children and grandchildren early Monday morning, by insisting that Trump should not be allowed to fill his third lifelong Supreme Court appointment, tipping the court for generations,” a statement from the group said.

Chinese state media trumpeted this weekend’s tentative deal between China’s ByteDance and U.S. companies Oracle and Walmart for control over the social media platform TikTok as a major victory for the Chinese firm against “U.S. hegemonic suppression.”

President Donald Trump gave the deal his “blessing” over the weekend, at least “in concept.”

Nolte: BLM Riots Are Officially the Most Costly Manmade Damage to American Property in History
WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 31: Demonstrators set a fire during a protest near the White House on May 31, 2020 in Washington, DC. Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was arrested for Floyd's death and is accused of kneeling on Floyd's neck as he pleaded with him about not being able …Alex Wong/Getty Images
JOHN NOLTE16 Sep 20205,832
The domestic terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter have accomplished one thing: the most costly riots in the history of our country, reports the far-left Axios.

Property Claim Services, a company that tracks insurance claims filed due to riots and the like, found that the left-wing riots that occurred between May 26 and June 8 of this year could reach $2 billion in insurance claims.

Obviously, because the left’s domestic terrorism extended well beyond June 8 and is still ongoing, the company acknowledges “this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.”

Most importantly, these estimates are all being compared based on 2020 dollars. Meaning, previous riots, like the 1992 Rodney King Riots in Los Angeles, cost $775 million in 1992 dollars. That adds up to $1.42 billion today, which is still lower than the $2 billion Black Lives Matter Riots estimate — which again only covers eight or nine days of rioting that has never really stopped.

Here’s a piece of perspective that shocked even me…

If you add up the insurance cost in 2020 dollars for all six major American riots during the turbulent 1960s, the total is a little shy of $1.2 billion — which means the terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter caused more mayhem and property damage in a little over a week than this country saw throughout all of the 1960s.

To the surprise of no one, Axios still uses the term “mostly peaceful” to describe what’s happening.

There’s also this helpful non sequitur: “Yes, but: These losses are small compared with those stemming from natural disasters like hurricanes and the wildfires that are consuming the U.S. West.” [emphasis original]

So even in the face of all this murder, property damage, assaults, looting, and burning, the clown show at Axios proudly marches onward.

“Mostly peaceful.”

Man alive.

Another thing to keep in mind is that these estimates are based only on insurance claims, so near the bottom of the piece, we’re told: “U.S. companies have learned the hard way that their insurance doesn’t cover business interruption related to the coronavirus, most policies emphatically do cover riot-related losses.”

John Bolton Rejects Atlantic Story: ‘I Was There’; ‘I Didn’t Hear That’
WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 20: U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to members of the media as National Security Adviser John Bolton listens during a meeting with President of Romania Klaus Iohannis in the Oval Office of the White House August 20, 2019 in Washington, DC. This is Iohannis’ second visit …Alex Wong/Getty Images
JOEL B. POLLAK4 Sep 202037,722
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton has disputed a story in The Atlantic claiming that President Donald Trump called fallen World War I soldiers “losers.” Bolton told the New York Times Friday that “I was there” and “I didn’t hear that.”
The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg published an article titled “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’.” The story also claimed that Trump skipped a 2018 visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris, where the fallen of the battle of Belleau Wood are buried, because he feared rain would ruin his hair. Goldberg’s sources were all anonymous.

The White House vigorously denied the report, and several officials who accompanied Trump on his trip to Europe in 2018 denied that the president had ever said anything like that. Public documents also support the idea that the president’s visit was canceled due to weather, not because the president worried about his hair.

Bolton, who has emerged as an adversary of the president since leaving the administration last fall, wrote in his tell-all book about Trump that the visit to the cemetery by helicopter had been canceled because of weather. Driving, Bolton wrote, was not an option because of the “unacceptable risk” of being stuck in traffic if an emergency arose. He criticized the media for falsely reporting that Trump skipped his visit because he was “afraid of the rain.”

WATCH: Tearful Salon Owner Says ‘Mrs. Pelosi Owes the Entire Country an Apology’
KPIX CBS SF Bay Area / YouTube
JOEL B. POLLAK4 Sep 202010,836
Salon owner Erica Kious told a Zoom press conference on Thursday that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was lying to say she was “set up,” and that she should apologize to America and to small business owners and workers struggling to survive.

Pelosi was caught on surveillance camera attending Kious’s salon earlier this week for a private hair appointment indoors with a stylist, Jonathan DeNardo. San Francisco and Alameda counties are still not allowing salons to reopen indoors due to going coronavirus restrictions.

Pelosi was criticized for breaking rules her party created, and failing to lead by example.

A spokesperson for the Speaker said she did not know that she was breaking the rules, and blamed the salon for the violation.
On Wednesday, Pelosi doubled down, telling reporters she fell for a “setup” and that the salon owner should apologize to her.
The Pelosi camp energetically pushed the idea that Kious had acted out of political motives, circulating a letter from an attorney for DeNardo that accused Kious of operating her salon at other times during the shutdown, and of making “vitriolic and incendiary comments” about Pelosi. Pelosi’s daughter, Christine, posted the letter on Twitter with the hashtag “#Setup”.
On Thursday, Kious responded. She denied that there had been any setup, saying that Pelosi’s “assertion that she is a victim and was set up” was “totally false and outrageous.”

She said that she had lost six months’ of income due to the coronavirus shutdowns, but had allowed stylists to make appointments if they needed money.

Choking back tears, Kious added:
For the Speaker of the House of the United States to go on TV and falsely claim she was set up, and publicly defame me and send out PR firms to spin more lies … is bad enough, but for Speaker Pelosi to frame herself as a victim under a total false narrative while small businesses and workers all over California, the state she represents in Congress, suffer and struggle just to survive is beyond shameful.

I don’t owe anyone an apology; Mrs. Pelosi owes the entire country an apology.
Kious said that her motive in sharing the video of Pelosi’s appointment was to encourage her and other politicians to allow businesses to reopen.
Report: Suspect in Fatal Shooting of Conservative Activist Killed by Police

DYLAN GWINN3 Sep 202013,453
The man being investigated in the shooting death of a member of the conservative group Patriot Prayer was killed Thursday night by police near Seattle, according to a report from the New York Times.

Michael Forest Reinoehl was encountered by a fugitive apprehension task force in Lacey, Washington, a city to the southwest of Seattle.
According to the New York Times, “An arrest warrant had been issued by the Portland police earlier Thursday, on the same day that Vice News published an interview with Mr. Reinoehl in which he appeared to admit to the shooting, saying, ‘I had no choice.'”

In an odd twist, President Trump had urged law enforcement to apprehend Reinoehl only moments before his fatal encounter with police.
Unnamed law enforcement confirmed Reinoehl’s death the Times.
Reinoehl was identified on social media soon after the shooting of Aaron J. Danielson, last weekend.
Watch – BLM Protesters to Police: ‘Y’all Are the Murderers … Y’all Need to Start Being Killed like Y’all Kill Us’
Matt Perdie
HANNAH BLEAU3 Sep 20206,675
A Black Lives Matter protester, yelling through a megaphone, informed a group of police officers that they are “criminals” and “murderers” during Wednesday night’s protests in the nation’s capital, while another assessed that cops “need to start being killed like y’all kill us.”

“You’re childish as fuck. Just so you know, he’s not qualified to stop no crime,” a female protester said through a megaphone as she walked up and down a line of police officers following a fatal police-involved shooting of 18-year-old Deon Kay, who brandished a weapon during a pursuit that afternoon, bodycam footage of the incident shows.
“Get the fuck out of here,” she said, stating that officers do not know what constitutes a crime.
“How about a kid getting shot in the back. Is that a fucking crime? Is that a crime? Is it a crime that y’all’s budget is way too fucking high but the amount of books in our schools are way too fucking low? Isn’t that a fucking crime? she asked.
“Y’all don’t know what the fuck crime is. Crime is subjective baby,” she continued, telling the cops that they can “commit all the crimes y’all want and that shit’s ok right?”
“So fuck y’all,” she said, calling the cops murderers and accusing them of terrorizing people.
Ya’ll don’t know shit about crime. Y’all are the criminals. Y’all are the murderers. Y’all are the fucking problem so you’ve got to fucking go. Everybody. Every single mother fucking body,” she said, seemingly singling out a single police officer.

Who the fuck is that n***** protecting? Nobody. Who the fuck do you protect? Nobody,” adding that all they do is “terrorize.”
“So we do not want you in our streets. Because we pay you and you are not serving us. You are not protecting us.” she said as the crowd chanted “No justice, no peace.”
Shortly after, the protester shouted “Fuck your grandmother too” to an officer and mocked a black cop for holding up a flashlight as demonstrators harassed him.
“You’re going to lose your job baby. We’re going to defend the PD and guess what? You’re going to be one of the first motherfuckers to go,” she added. “Can’t wait.”
She later told cops that “it is not a necessity to have y’all.”
“We keep us safe. Not y’all. All y’all do is shoot kids,” she said, joining another protester in calling cops “evil.”
A male protester jumped in and stated that officers need to start being killed.
“Y’all need to start being killed like y’all kill us, and then we might get some fucking respect,” he said:

Better Than Expected! U.S. Economy Added 1.37 Million Jobs in August, Unemployment Fell to 8.4%

JOHN CARNEY4 Sep 20206,339
The U.S. economy added 1.37 million jobs in August and the unemployment rate fell to 8.4 percent, providing reassurance that the labor market has kept up some of its post-lockdown momentum.

Economists had forecast an addition of around 1.32 million jobs and a decline in the unemployment rate to 9.8 percent from 10.2 percent last week.

CNN Medical Reporter Cohen: Trump ‘Has Blood on His Hands’ When He Mocks People ‘Wearing a Mask’
PAM KEY4 Sep 20201,370
CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen said on Friday when President Donald Trump mocks people for wearing masks, he has “blood on his hands.”

In a clip from the campaign trail on Thursday, while commenting on Joe Biden, Trump said, “Did you ever see a man that likes a mask as much as him? And then he makes a speech and he always — not always but a lot of times he has it hanging down, but you know what? It gives him a feeling of security. If I were a psychiatrist, right? No? I would say this guy’s got some big issues.”

American Psychological Association Urges ‘True Systemic Change in U.S. Culture’

NEIL MUNRO3 Sep 20204,100
The American Psychological Association is calling for “true systemic change in U.S. culture” because of “institutional racism,” says a September 1 statement from the group.
The statement says:
Today’s inequities, psychologists say, are deeply rooted in our past, and the status quo is no longer acceptable. “Every institution in America is born from the blood of white supremacist ideology and capitalism—and that’s the disease,” says Theopia Jackson, PhD, president of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi).
Psychologists have a role as activists in their own local communities as well. They can make their voices heard by contacting their lawmakers, volunteering for a cause or candidate, speaking up on social media and more.
For example, in May, the APA’s 2020 president — Sandra Shullman — portrayed racism as a medical issue instead of a political, civic, or cultural issue:

Michelle Obama Offers Gloomy Convention Speech: ‘You Know I Hate Politics’
CHARLIE SPIERING17 Aug 202011,393
Former first lady Michelle Obama delivered a gloomy pre-taped speech at the Democrat National Convention on Monday, lamenting the state of the country under President Donald Trump.

“You know I hate politics. But you also know that I care about this nation,” she said during her speech endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

Obama began her speech with a serious tone, focusing on the coronavirus pandemic and the jaded feeling in the country about politics.

“Its a hard time and everyone’s feeling it different ways,” she began, acknowledging that it was “hard to tune into a political convention right now or politics in general.”

Obama also claimed that because she was a black woman, some people would automatically discount her message and her endorsement of Biden.

“Now, I understand that my message won’t be heard by some people,” she said. “We live in a nation that is deeply divided, and I am a black woman speaking at a Democratic convention.”

Obama also spoke about the pain of watching President Donald Trump winning in 2016 despite losing the popular vote, knowing that so many Democrats in key battleground states did not vote. She said:

Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is.

Obama pointedly noted that she loved her country “with all my heart,” but she said that Americans continue to struggle with injustice, racism, and pain.

“They see people shouting in grocery stores, unwilling to wear a mask to keep us all safe. They see people calling the police on folks minding their own business just because of the color of their skin,” she said.

Obama blamed President Trump for taking what she described as a successful presidency under her husband, President Barack Obama, and making it worse.

“Four years later, the state of this nation is very different. More than 150,000 people have died, and our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this president downplayed for too long,” she said.

She accused Trump of emboldening “torch-bearing white supremacists,” throwing “kids in cages,” and pepper-spraying “peaceful protesters” for a “photo op.”

“Sadly this is the America that is on display for the next generation,” she said, noting that America was failing on “matters of character.”

“That is not just disappointing, it’s downright infuriating,” she continued.

The former first lady endorsed Biden, telling voters they should vote as if their lives depended on the results of the 2020 election.

“If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can and they will if we don’t make a change in this election,” she said.

Neighbors Raise $115K for Single Mom Who Gave Lottery Winnings to Injured Cop: ‘She’s a Treasure’
AMY FURR24 Jul 2020815
Neighbors in Kansas City, Missouri, have continued to bless a woman who donated her lottery winnings to an officer shot in the line of duty.
When Shetara Sims found a one-dollar bill in a parking lot recently, she bought a scratch-off ticket and won $100 dollars, Breitbart News reported.
Although her mom was out of work, Sims’ 12-year-old daughter, Rakiya Edmondson, said they should donate the money to a Kansas City Police (KCPD) officer recovering in the ICU after being shot on July 2.

“This woman, she’s such a treasure. She felt to help, she had had experiences with the police department before,” Sgt. Jake Becchina told Fox News on Thursday.

“She would tell you that in 2012, her daughter was murdered in Kansas City. And we investigated her case and we arrested her killer,” he continued.

When Sims called the department to donate her winnings, officers were so touched by her story, they urged her to keep the money, but she refused and said the injured policeman needed it more.

The department later set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the struggling single mom, and the response from the community was more than it ever imagined.

“We at KCPD shared this wonderful act of humanity on our social media. Then hundreds of people said they wanted to help her out,” the site read.

As of Friday, the page had raised $115,580 of its $10,000 goal.

Becchina explained Thursday that Kansas City had an amazing sense of community spirit.

“Kansas Citians love their city, and when someone steps up to support their police department or any of their public servants, people love that. They reach out, they want to support that,” he commented.

Sims said the KCPD was there for her when her daughter was killed “in ways they didn’t have to be,” adding, “It’s an ugly time right now and they needed us so we had to be there for them.”

When asked what she wanted others to know about police officers, Sims urged Americans to see them as human beings.

“We need to individualize people. Everybody puts everybody in one lump sum. … Everybody’s different,” she concluded.

lAlec Baldwin Claims Trump Planning to Use Armed Force to ‘Stop the Election in November’

Actor Alec Baldwin is pushing a wild conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump could use armed force to stop the election in November. The Hollywood star is basing his unfounded claim on the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to deploy federal agents in Portland, Oregon, to subdue violent rioters following weeks of urban chaos.

“The ‘police’ activity in Portland, and lack of outrage over/resistance to it tells us how Trump could stop the election in November. It’s his only hope,” Alec Baldwin wrote.

Alec Baldwin more forcefully pushed his theory in a separate tweet claiming that a military intervention is “Trump’s election strategy.” The actor pointed to an Esquire article by left-wing, anti-Trump pundit Charles P. Pierce who wrote that the federal crackdown in Portland could be a “dress rehearsal” for November.

Celebrity siblings Patricia and Rosanna Arquette added to the hysteria by claiming that federal agents are the “secret police,” using “Gestapo” tactics. Their inflammatory rhetoric is similar to that of House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who referred to law enforcement as “stormtroopers.”

DHS officers moved to subdue rioters in Portland after the the head of the Department of Homeland Security visited the Oregon city and called the demonstrators “violent anarchists.”

Despite widespread claims that the protestors were “peaceful,” DHS acting secretary Chad Wolf confirmed that officers were “assaulted with lasers and frozen water bottles from violent criminals attempting to tear down federal property. 2 officers were injured.”

The department’s tactics were called into question after a video showed a suspect being taken into custody in an unmarked vehicle. DHS said that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents had information that the individual was suspected of assaulting agents or destroying property.

The agents were also facing a large mob of people and made the decision to take the suspect into the car as a precautionary measure, according to the DHS.

Some media reports also complained that agents weren’t wearing identifying clothing, but the DHS disputes this.

“The CBP agents identified themselves and were wearing CBP insignia during the encounter,” the department said in a statement. “The names of the agents were not displayed due to recent doxing incidents against law enforcement personnel who serve and protect our country.”

Portland has experienced weeks of violent protests and rioting since the death of George Floyd in May. Mayor Ted Wheeler has attempted to blame the chaos on President Trump and has refused federal agents in the city despite the spiraling violence.

Federal law enforcement officers have moved to quell sustained Antifa violence in Portland, Oregon, and are reportedly detaining protesters in unmarked police vehicles.

According to Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), federal officers have been using unmarked vehicles to detain protesters since “a least” July 14, following weeks of protesters attacking cops, vandalizing federal buildings, and repeatedly attempting to light police precincts on fire.

Portland Cop: ‘More Minorities on Police Side’ than ‘Violent’ Black Lives Matter Crowd

A police officer in Portland, Oregon, highlighted the hypocrisy of Black Lives Matter protesters in an interview released Wednesday.
“It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest, you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd, and you have white people screaming at black officers, ‘You have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen,'” said Officer Jakhary Jackson.

Consumer Sentiment Slumps as Coronavirus Infections and Lockdowns Rise Again

JOHN CARNEY17 Jul 20201,008
Consumer sentiment unexpectedly declined in the first half of July as state and local governments retreated from reopening plans and infections surged in many areas across the country.
The University of Michigan’s Index of Consumer Sentiment slumped to 73.2 in July’s preliminary reading from 78 at the end of June. Economists had forecast a slight gain to 79.
“The promising gain recorded in June was reversed,” said the survey’s chief economist, Richard Curtin.
The surprise drop in consumer sentiment is the latest demonstration of how unpredictable and uneven economic data has become in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, shutdowns, and unprecedented aid from the government to support businesses and households. Jobless claims have remained at extremely elevated levels and unemployment near multi-decade highs while household incomes and spending have held up. The stock market has been on a wild tear upward, housing market is reviving and regional surveys of manufacturers have shown strength.
“Unfortunately, declines are more likely in the months ahead as the coronavirus spreads and causes continued economic harm, social disruptions, and permanent scarring,” Cutin said.
Both the index components—which measure current conditions and expectations for the future—sank in July. The expectations component crashed 8.4 percent and is 26.9 percent below the year ago level. Consumers’ assessments of current conditions fell 3.3 percent and are 23.9 percent below last year’s score.

Mike Pence Warns of Biden’s Turn to Socialism: ‘It Looks to Me like Bernie Won’

RIPON, Wisconsin — Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech in Wisconsin on Friday detailing a “time for choosing” for Americans in 2020 and warning of former Vice President Joe Biden’s turn toward socialism.
“I thought Joe Biden won the Democratic primaries, but looking at their unity agenda, it looks to me like Bernie won,” he said, referring to Biden’s “Unity agenda” drafted with the support of Democrat Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The vice president spoke to about 50 people at Ripon College, warning that Biden would pursue a path for America that is sharply different than the four years of record economic success under the Trump administration.
“It’s clear Joe Biden would be nothing more than an autopen president,” he said, “a Trojan horse for a radical agenda.”
Pence said he traveled to Ripon, where the Republican party was born, to remind Americans what they stood for
“When that first convention met here in 1854, they wrote that their decision to found a new political party had been ‘forced upon us by the slave power and in the defense of freedom,'” he said. “They said that they would cooperate and be known as Republicans.”
The choice in the next election, he repeated, was stark.

Fauci Urges Governments to Be ‘as Forceful as Possible’ on Mask Mandates
PAM KEY17 Jul 20201,112
Friday on CSPAN during a video conference with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci said state and local government leaders should be “as forceful as possible” in urging the wearing of face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Fauci said, “I can say as a public health official I would urge the leaders, the local, political and other leaders in states and cities and towns to be as forceful as possible in getting your citizenry to wear masks.”

WARNER TODD HUSTON17 Jul 20202,156
Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan was implicated Friday in a years-long bribery scheme involving power company ComEd.
Federal prosecutors said ComEd would be fined $200 million for a scheme including bribes in the form of no-show jobs and contracts to associates of “Public Official A,” who is widely understood to be the Speaker.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office identified a high-level elected official, termed “Public Official A,” in a Friday press release. The official was implicated in the electric company’s attempts to sway him by doling out exclusive contracts, and no-show jobs to his friends and associates. However, Madigan is not directly named in any of the public filings thus far.
Still, prosecutors left little doubt about who “public official A” could be.
“Public Official A controlled what measures were called for a vote in the Illinois House of Representatives and exerted substantial influence over fellow lawmakers concerning legislation affecting ComEd,” Friday’s press release stated.
Madigan, who is a Chicago area state representative, has been Speaker of the Illinois House since 1983, with the exception of two years in which Republicans controlled the legislature. He is the longest-serving state house speaker in American history, and is the most powerful Democrat in the state.

Watch: Catholics Hold Vigil at Virgin Mary Statue Torched by Vandals
Virgin Mary statue in DorchesterBoston Fire Department
ASHLEY OLIVER15 Jul 20206,912
A group of Catholics turned out Wednesday evening to pray the Rosary at the site of a Virgin Mary statue that had been set ablaze over the weekend outside of St. Peter Parish in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston.
The group of around a hundred, led by Father John Currie, included parishioners, priests, nuns, and monks. They recited prayers in English, as well as Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin, and offered benevolent words to “the person or persons” responsible for the scorched statue, with Currie proclaiming at one point, “We love you, we forgive you, and we are here to serve and help you in any way you may need.”
One attendee, Boston Catholic Radio chairman Louis Murray, posted several photos and livestreamed the event to social media, capturing the crowd surrounding the semi-restored statue, which had been donned with fresh flowers:
He posted images of Capuchin monks, along with the Sisters of Charity and Daughters of Mary of Nazareth — in personal protective equipment to adhere to coronavirus guidelines — who were also in attendance:

The vandalism of the Virgin Mary statue is part of a recent uptick in attacks directed toward the Catholic faith. The 249-year-old San Gabriel Mission was engulfed in flames on July 11; the word “idol” was scrawled across a Virgin Mary statue at Cathedral Preparatory School and Seminary in Queens on July 10; and in Ocala, Florida, a man reportedly crashed his vehicle into the front doors of Queen of Peace Catholic Church before setting it on fire and causing significant damage, also on July 11.

In Boston, police continue to investigate the statue arson, during which an unknown suspect lit plastic flowers on fire in the statue’s hands, causing the burn marks on its upper surface.
Currie remarked to the crowd assembled around the statue that the attacks give rise to an opportunity for church members “to be an example in shining light of peace, hope, and love” for the country amid the destructive incidents, explaining that this response “is what Our Lady wants us to do.”
Additional cleaning and restoration of the statue is scheduled for Friday.

JOHN NOLTE16 Jul 20204,572
“The Chattanooga Police Department is investigating after someone vandalized a 5-foot tall statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary at the St. Stephen Catholic Church,” reports local media.
The Blessed Mother was beheaded.
Last week, in Queens, New York, a statue of the Virgin Mother was desecrated with spray paint.
Just a few days ago, in Boston, a statue of the Virgin Mary was set on fire.
Just a few days ago, in Ocala, Florida, a 23-year-old man was charged “after detectives say he plowed a minivan through the front door of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Ocala, doused the foyer with gasoline and set it on fire, causing extensive damage.”
On June 19, June 20, and July 4, statues of St. Junipero Serra were toppled in three California cities.
On July 11, the sacred Catholic mission  of San Gabriel, a mission founded 249 years ago by Serra — the left’s latest target as a racist colonialist (fact check: he was not) — was decimated by a fire that is under investigation for arson.
Even of the San Gabriel fire proves to be an accident, there is no question the Christian Church, and more specifically, the Catholic Church, is under attack by the left.

And not just the left, but the Democrat Party and the corporate media who continue to offer their silent approval of these desecrations. You don’t need me to tell you that if these were mosques, this would be the biggest story in the country right now. And there is also no question the left, specifically the left-wing terrorists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa, have placed a target on the Christian Church.

A statue depicting Jesus Christ has been found decapitated inside a South Florida church, leaving congregants of the house of worship shaken.
Deacon Edivaldo da Saliva of The Good Shepherd Catholic Church in West Kendall told local media that the decapitated statue was discovered Wednesday morning.
“This morning I found it on the ground, and we presume that it is vandalism,” said da Silva.
“We have seen this happening all over the country,” he added.

Joe Biden: Trump Not ‘Cognitively Aware of What’s Going On’

JOSHUA CAPLAN30 Jun 20208,388
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday claimed President Donald Trump appears not to be “cognitively aware of what’s going on,” an apparent response to his political opponent attacking his own mental agility.

“This president talks about cognitive capability, Biden, known for his repeated verbal flubs, began a speech on the coronavirus pandemic in his home city of Wilmington, Delaware. “He doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on.”

“He either reads or gets briefed on important issues, and he forgets it, or he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he need to know it,” the presumptive Democrat nominee added, before criticizing President Trump over unsubstantiated reports that Russia offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. military personnel. In a Tuesday statement, the Department of Defense said it had no corroborating evidence that Russian offered bounties to Taliban fights to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

“The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports,” Pentagon Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said.

Asked by a reporter about speculation regarding his own mental decline, Biden replied: “I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I am running against.”

Biden’s apparent accusation regarding President Trump’s cognitive condition comes as voters continue to worry about the former vice president’s own mental state.

As Breitbart News reported:

One-fifth of Democrat voters believe that Joe Biden (D), the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, is suffering from “some form” of dementia, and a majority of likely voters say it is important for him to address the issue publicly, a Rasmussen Reports poll released Monday revealed.

The survey, conducted June 25-28 among 1,000 likely voters, asked respondents, “From what you have seen and read, do you believe Joe Biden is suffering from some form of dementia?”

The survey found that 38 percent of voters, overall, believe he has dementia, while 20 percent within his own party say the same. According to Rasmussen, “that compares to 66% of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”

President Trump has repeatedly remarked about Biden’s verbal flubs, saying the former vice president is “not mentally sharp enough” to be in the White House.

“Biden doesn’t know, I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive,” the president said recently. “I’m against somebody. Think of it. I’m against somebody that can’t answer simple questions. I’ve never seen anything like it, but here’s what I am against. I’m against a very powerful party, the Democrats, and they can take this glass of water and say that’s your candidate.”

Jill Biden: ‘A Lot of Republicans Are Going to Vote for Joe’ — Trump’s Supporters ‘Disillusioned’ 

PAM KEY30 Jun 202088,819
Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” former second lady Jill Biden predicted “a lot of Republicans” would vote for her husband, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in November.

Co-host Meghan McCain said, “As you know, Republicans are very tribal. Trump says that he has a 96% approval rating in the Republican Party. He’s predicting a big win because of the silent majority, which we know from 2016 does exist. How can you counter what he’s saying?”
Biden said, “Well, you know, I think, Meghan, I have a little bit of a different slant on it. From what I’ve seen, a lot of Republicans are going to vote for Joe. You know, they’ve been saying it. Maybe they’re not saying it publicly. When I was out there on the trail, a lot of people came up to me and said, ‘Jill, I’m a Republican, but I’m going to vote for your husband because he’s a moderate and he’s a steady leader, and we believe in Joe.’ So, I think, you know, of course, Trump has his supporters. I think a lot of his supporters have become disillusioned, especially in the way he’s handled this pandemic. We’ve seen the —you know, just these last two days the spike in the numbers of people who are getting sick and how he’s not even addressing it and taking care of American families. So, I have a little bit of a different take on it than maybe than you do.”

Gov. Kristi Noem: ‘We Will Not Be Socially Distancing’ at Mount Rushmore Independence Day Event
George Washington's Head Depicted On Mount Rushmore
HANNAH BLEAU30 Jun 20201,340
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) on Monday previewed the upcoming Independence Day celebration at Mount Rushmore, saying that masks will be provided but will remain optional and that there will “not be social distancing.”
South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore Fireworks Celebration will take place July 3. The event, which President Donald Trump will attend, will feature a flyover, fireworks, “performances by Native American artists, appearances from the United States Air Force Academy concert band, and many other talented people,” according to the event page’s FAQ.
While free masks will be handed out to attendees, they will not be required to wear them, according to Noem.
“We will have a large event on July 3. We told those folks that have concerns that they can stay home, but those who want to come and join us, we’ll be giving out free face masks, if they choose to wear one. But we will not be social distancing,” Noem said during a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle.
“Every one of them has the opportunity to make a decision that they’re comfortable with,” she said of South Dakotans.
Attendance is limited to roughly 7,500 participants, which were chosen by lottery.
South Dakota has reported 6,716 coronavirus cases and 91 deaths, according to the state’s Department of Health website. The state had 807 active cases as of Tuesday.
The gathering comes as thousands of demonstrators across the country take to the streets, largely ignoring social distancing guidelines themselves. Thousands, for example, recently gathered in Chicago for an unofficial pride march, despite Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s cancellation of the event. While demonstrators were encouraged to follow the city’s mask and social distancing rules, photos show throngs of activists, many of whom were not wearing masks:

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping signed a decree on Tuesday enacting a “national security” law that allows the Communist Party to antagonize and prosecute dissidents in Hong Kong, triggering global condemnation and widespread concern among participants in the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.

The city – technically part of a China, but legally autonomous from Beijing – has experienced over a year of ongoing protests against China’s many attempts to undermine the “One Country, Two Systems” policy that allows Hongkongers the right to free speech and free assembly. The protest movement took off in mid-2019 in response to a proposed law in the Hong Kong Legislative Council (LegCo) that would have allowed China to extradite anyone present in the city if accused of violating Communist Party laws, which include prison sentences for crimes like “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.”
Khan’s London: Met Police Hiring ‘Racism Spotters’ to Examine Prospective Officers

KURT ZINDULKA30 Jun 2020638
London’s Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is currently hiring so-called ‘racism spotters’ to examine whether prospective police officers are prejudiced, as the city’s leftist mayor, Sadiq Khan, prepares to cut the budget of actual police.

The civilian staffed position has been in place since 2003, yet the salary for racism spotters has recently been given a 50 per cent bump, meaning that they can earn £150 per day, plus expenses. The pay for the position, which is part-time, would be equivalent to a full-time salary of £39,000 — ten thousand more pounds than the starting rate for actual police officers, according to calculations made by British newspaper The Sun.

Recent advertisements from the Cressida Dick-led Metropolitan Police were promoting 50 open racism spotter positions, with those hired to work for at least 25 days per year. Prospective hirees are not required to hold any experience or qualifications in the field to be employed, though it is unclear what would qualify someone to judge if an officer is racist or not.

“The Met obviously shouldn’t be hiring officers who hold overtly racist views. But it is clearly an unreasonable use of public money to pay community assessors such huge sums when the basic salaries for police officers remain so low,” David Spencer of the Centre for Crime Prevention told the newspaper.

The pay increase was also criticised by the research director for TaxPayers’ Alliance, Duncan Simpson, who said: “A 50 per cent, taxpayer-funded pay hike is extraordinary given most people are facing a financial squeeze.

“All areas of the public sector, including the police, need to remember that every penny they spend comes from taxpayers, who are already paying the biggest tax burden for 50 years.”

In response to the revelations, a spokesman for the Met said: “To compare the day rate of casual workers with a salaried police constable, with the pension and allowances that attracts, is overly simplistic.

“Assessors also represent the diverse communities of London. It is in everyone’s best interest that we attract, recruit and retain the very best officers,” the MPS added.

Last week, the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, announced that he will be looking to cut the budget of the Metropolitan Police, the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), and the fire brigade, among other public services amidst budget shortfalls due to the Chinese coronavirus.

Police forces nationwide have been coming under increasing pressure in recent months amid the coronavirus lockdown, and then the emergence of at-times violent Black Lives Matter protests.

The Woke Taliban have won. HBO Max announced on Tuesday it is blacklisting Gone With the Wind (1939), and with it, Hattie McDaniel’s performance for which she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar of 1940.
McDaniel was not only the first black actor or actress to win an Oscar, she was the first black person ever to win an Oscar of any kind, and the first black person to even be nominated. Other than Merle Oberon, who was both Asian and Polynesian, McDaniel was the first racial minority ever nominated for any category.
There’s more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches. – Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Come on, I did tell you… I told you so last week, I told you so years ago, and this is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
The Woke Taliban are literally toppling statues, literally rewriting history, literally creating their own caliphate, literally renaming streets, literally forcing people to their knees, so of course the destruction and desecration of art is part and parcel.

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right. ― George Orwell, 1984

First Gone With the Wind, which is still the most popular and financially successful movie ever made, will be blacklisted by HBO. Then the network promises its return, but only after it’s been desecrated:

“’Gone With The Wind’ is a product of its time and depicts some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that have, unfortunately, been commonplace in American society. These racist depictions were wrong then and are wrong today, and we felt that to keep this title up without an explanation and a denouncement of those depictions would be irresponsible,” an HBO Max spokesperson told Variety. “These depictions are certainly counter to WarnerMedia’s values, so when we return the film to HBO Max, it will return with a  discussion of its historical context and a denouncement of those very depictions, but will be presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. If we are to create a more just, equitable and inclusive future, we must first acknowledge and understand our history.”

So Gone With the Wind will return after it’s been vandalized with a filmed introduction of the “correct” people instructing us on how to “correctly” view, experience, and interpret this piece of art. And let me assure you HBO Max will not allow you to fast-forward through this tutorial on how to interpret art. Like those commercials you cannot skip over, you will be forced to sit through it.
In other words, when HBO Max says the movie will be “presented as it was originally created,” that’s a lie. It now will be presented with a tutorial telling you how to feel (guilt, shame, anger) about what you’re about to watch.

The bad news is this is only the beginning…

This good news is that this too shall pass…

Need I remind you this all began with Oscar-winner screenwriter John Ridley’s list of demands. It was his L.A. Times editorial that blackmailed HBO Max into blacklisting a classic 73 percent of black people love. Here’s his list of his deliberately vague blackmail demands… [emphasis added]

…all content providers look at their libraries and make a good-faith effort to separate programming that might be lacking in its representation from that which is blatant in its demonization.

He adds:

It doesn’t just “fall short” with regard to representation. It is a film that glorifies the antebellum south. It is a film that, when it is not ignoring the horrors of slavery, pauses only to perpetuate some of the most painful stereotypes of people of color.

Goodbye Casablanca (1942). We can’t have Ilsa referring to Sam as “Boy.”

Goodbye Holiday Inn (1942). We can’t have Bing Crosby singing in blackface.

Goodbye High Sierra (1941). We can’t have Willie Best doing the minstrel.

Goodbye Animal House (1978). We can’t have the black bar scene (that Richard Pryor personally approved of).

Goodbye Lenny Bruce and George Carlin and M*A*S*H and  You Only Live Twice and Big Trouble In Little China and Silver Streak and Cotton Comes to Harlem and Car Wash and Pulp Fiction and Billy Madison and Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Driving Miss Daisy and Black Hawk Down and True Lies and The Green Mile and Blazing Saddles, Scarface, Sixteen Candles, Soul Man, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Good Earth, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Loony Tunes, Seinfeld, The Jeffersons, Married With Children, Sanford and Son, Soap, All In the Family, and every one of Woody Allen’s films…

And let’s not forget Cops, which has already been blacklisted, along with Song of the South.

Buy hard copies of the art you love — books, movies, TV, music — because it is all about to quietly and not-so-quietly disappear.

Purchasing a digital copy is not enough. Fascists like Amazon will either delete entirely or desecrate your digital copies with censorship.

No content is safe because no content can meet the Woke Taliban’s list of demands, which is by design…

You see, it’s all about terrorizing us with Kafka-esque rules, which means there are no rules, which means we’re always terrorized and therefore timid.

This is not a drill.

Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell responded to a congressional request Wednesday by submitting a declassified list of Obama administration officials who had requested names be “unmasked” from Nov. 8, 2016 to Jan. 31, 2017.

Among those “unmasked”: incoming National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.).

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted Wednesday to former Vice President Joe Biden being one of several top Obama officials who may have received intelligence from unmasking requests targeting former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn — according to newly-declassified documents by acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell — stating that the presumptive Democrat nominee was “caught red-handed” using U.S. spy powers to “go after a political opponent.”

JOEL B. POLLAK12 May 20203,889
Fox News’ Ed Henry reported Tuesday evening that Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has declassified information calling into question the conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump.

Henry told Tucker Carlson on Tucker Carlson Tonight that the new information would suggest that John Brennan, who headed the Central Intelligence Agency under President Barack Obama, “also had intel saying, actually, Russia wanted Hillary Clinton to win because she was a known quantity, she had been secretary of state, and Vladimir Putin’s team thought she was more malleable, while candidate Donald Trump was unpredictable.”
Former National Security Council chief of staff Fred Fleitz made a similar claim in an article on April 22:
House Intelligence Committee staff told me that after an exhaustive investigation reviewing intelligence and interviewing intelligence officers, they found that Brennan suppressed high-quality intelligence suggesting that Putin actually wanted the more predictable and malleable Clinton to win the 2016 election.

Instead, the Brennan team included low-quality intelligence that failed to meet intelligence community standards to support the political claim that Russian officials wanted Trump to win, House Intelligence Committee staff revealed. They said that CIA analysts also objected to including that flawed, substandard information in the assessment.

Nolte: CNN Poll Shows Trump Crushing Biden in Battleground States

JOHN NOLTE13 May 20204,045
A CNN poll of 15 crucial battleground states shows President Trump crushing Joe Biden by seven full points, 52 to 45 percent.
The poll covered the expected swing states of Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
In its national poll, the fake news outlet shows Burisma Biden beating Trump 51 to 46 percent, but the presidency is not a national race, it is a race in each of the 50 states.
Earlier this week, CNN was forced to publish another bad news poll (if you are CNN), a poll that showed Trump tying his highest approval number ever — 45 percent — in a CNN poll. This must have been absolutely devastating for CNNLOL, for that shameless gang of far-left propagandists who have spent the last six weeks accusing Trump of murdering 80,000 Americans with the coronavirus.

Mayor Eric Garcetti: L.A. Won’t Completely Open Until We Have Coronavirus ‘Cure’

Appearing Wednesday on ABC’s Good Morning America, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) said his city won’t fully reopen until there is a cure for the Chinese coronavirus.
Garcetti’s remarks come after Los Angeles county’s top public health official predicted its stay-at-home order will remain in place for an additional three months.

The governors of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania are under fire for controversial nursing home policy decisions that critics say fueled coronavirus deaths in those facilities.
On March 25, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) ordered nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for COVID-19, as the New York Post reported:
An executive at the unnamed Queens nursing home says that the facility was coronavirus-free until Gov. Andrew Cuomo forced facilities in the state to accept coronavirus patients on March 25.

Pennsylvania’s Health Secretary Rachel Levine moved her 95-year-old mother from a nursing home during the coronavirus pandemic, despite her department’s guidance instructing nursing homes to readmit “stable” patients who contracted the coronavirus — a move critics say led to the stark reality of most virus deaths in the state stemming from those facilities.
“My mother requested, and my sister and I as her children complied to move her to another location during the Covid-19 outbreak,” Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender public health secretary, explained. “My mother is 95 years old. She is very intelligent and more than competent to make her own decisions.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) latest Chinese coronavirus relief package includes a mandate that federal inmates, as well as local convicts and illegal aliens, be released from jail so long as a court considers them “non-violent” offenders.
Pelosi’s plan would order the release of federal prisoners, illegal aliens in federal immigration detention facilities, and local convicts if they are considered by the courts and judicial officers to not be a threat to the community.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is waging an increasingly high-profile battle against an elderly barber, and he appears to be winning in both the courts of law and public opinion.
Karl Manke, a 77-year-old from Owosso, reopened his shop after he was turned down for unemployment.
Amid the legal threats from Whitmer’s administration, he recently responded, “What, are they going to give me? Life? I’ve got one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. I could care less.”
“As long as I have two hands and I’m capable of cutting hair, that’s my occupation,” Manke said. “That’s what I do. That’s what I’m going to continue to do.”
Manke addressed supporters outside his shop on Monday.

Facebook has blacklisted the page “Michiganders Against Excessive Quarantine,” a group with over 380,000 members that served as a central organizing hub for protests against Michigan’s Chinese virus lockdown.
Garrett Soldano, one of the leaders of the Michigan protests, said on his Twitter account that the group has created a new Facebook page, called “Stand Up Michigan.”
“They just shut us down. We have a new page. Here’s the new one” said Soldano in a post on Twitter. “Invite invite invite. We will not be shut down!”

New Jersey 12-Year-Old Uses Birthday Money to Feed Nurses, First Responders
Brianna GeerFacebook/Strangers Helping Strangers : COVID 19
A 12-year-old girl from New Jersey donated all of her birthday money to feed health care workers such as nurses and first responders on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.
Brianna Geer, of Garfield, took the money her parents would have spent on a party or gifts and put it towards the grassroots group Strangers Helping Strangers.
This group purchases meals for health care workers in hospitals and nursing homes and delivers groceries to homebound city residents, North reported.
“We would have thrown a party, so she asked that the money that would have been spent on the party we weren’t having could be used to help that organization,” Amanda, Brianna’s mother, said. “We posted the fundraiser on Facebook asking for donations instead of gifts.”
Enter your email address
The fundraiser generated around $300, which Brianna’s parents matched. So Brianna and her family wound up donating $600 and two vans’ filled with groceries in honor of Brianna’s birthday.
Brianna enjoyed a drive-by parade and received a proclamation in her name from the city in recognition of her efforts.
But that was just the beginning of Brianna’s charitable efforts.
She, along with her mother, donated personal protective equipment (PPE) to medical workers at Valley Hospital on Monday evening. Brianna also used her money to buy playing cards and puzzle books for the Paramus Veterans Memorial Home.
Other people who have had birthdays that fall during the pandemic also looked for ways to donate their gifts to charitable causes.
A Milwaukee, Wisconsin, attorney created a GoFundMe account on his birthday to raise money for struggling restaurants that were shut down during the coronavirus crisis.
His fundraiser generated more than $30,000.

Actor-comedian and professional Trump nemesis Rosie O’Donnell has laid out the reason why she is supporting Joe Biden’s bid for the White House: “This is who we have.”
Her unenthusiastic endorsement is due to a string of factors, including former Senate aide Tara Reade’s accusation that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 by using his fingers to penetrate her against her will.

China Threatens ‘Non-Peaceful Measures’ to Keep Taiwan out of W.H.O.

FRANCES MARTEL13 May 2020349
China’s state-run Global Times newspaper warned on Wednesday that, should pressure on the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) to include Taiwan become successful, the Communist Party may be forced to solve “the Taiwan question once and for all via non-peaceful means.”
The Global Times blamed the “people of the mainland,” meaning the People’s Republic of China, for the potential violence, asserting  Chinese people are increasingly supportive of invading and colonizing Taiwan.
Taiwan is a sovereign nation off the coast of Communist China. The Communist Party considers the island a renegade province despite the lack of any history in which Taiwan was ruled by Beijing. Taiwan is currently a democracy with a long history of free and fair elections and functional state institutions like a lawmaking body, a military, and extensive education and health care infrastructures.
Despite its status as an independent country, the W.H.O. does not acknowledge its sovereignty in response to Communist Party pressure. The agency used to invite Taiwan to the World Health Assembly, its annual meeting, but stopped in 2016 after the Taiwanese people elected President Tsai Ing-wen, who has vocally challenged Beijing’s illegal attempts to control much of the South China Sea region.
Calls are currently mounting for the W.H.O. to reverse this policy and invite Taiwan to this month’s World Health Assembly in light of the fact that Taiwan has almost completely contained the ongoing Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Taiwan has not documented a domestically transmitted case of Chinese coronavirus in one month.

PA County Commissioner Slams Governor’s Orders: Stop Running State as a ‘Dictatorship’
Jeff Haste, Pennsylvania’s Dauphin County Board chairman, slammed Gov.Tom Wolf (D) in a letter on Friday for keeping a bulk of businesses closed, particularly in his county, and bluntly called on Wolf to “return our state to the people (as prescribed by our Constitution) and not run it as a dictatorship.”

Twenty-four counties — Bradford, Cameron, Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lycoming, McKean, Mercer, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, Union, Venango, and Warren — moved to the “yellow” phase of reopening on Friday. The “yellow” phase, while still restrictive, allows limited nonessential retail operations but keeps a restaurant’s dine-in services, as well as salons and fitness centers, closed.

73 Percent of U.S. Adults Say China Bears Responsibility for American Coronavirus Deaths
Nearly three-fourths of U.S. adults say China bears responsibility for American coronavirus deaths, a Morning Consult tracker poll released Friday revealed.
 Morning Consult’s latest tracker survey, polling 2,200 U.S. adults across the country, found that the majority, 73 percent, at least partially hold China responsible for American coronavirus deaths.
The consensus held steady along partisan lines, with 80 percent of Republicans and 71 percent of Democrats stating the belief that China is “‘somewhat’ or ‘very’ responsible for the current death toll in the U.S. from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“Of the 12 groups and organizations listed in the survey, China is the most blamed entity among Republicans, and the fourth most among Democrats,” the survey found.
Seventy-three percent of U.S. adults surveyed also laid responsibility at the feet of “Americans who didn’t socially distance,” with Democrats outpacing Republican in the blame 84 percent to 67 percent.
Additionally, the survey found that 66 percent blame Americans who travelled internationally and 58 percent blame immigrants who travelled to the U.S. after the outbreak started.

Hillary Clinton to Endorse Joe Biden Amid Sexual Assault Scandal

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will endorse presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden during a virtual town hall event on Tuesday, according to CNN. The report comes as Biden faces mounting pressure to respond to allegations of sexual assault by Tara Reade, his former Senate staffer.

Clinton, who is being dubbed as Biden’s “special guest” this afternoon, teased her appearance in a tweet with a photo of the then-vice president embracing her as then-President Barack Obama looks on in the Oval Office. The twice-failed White House candidate will talk about the impact of the Chinese coronavirus is having on women during the event.

However, it is unclear whether Clinton will address Reade’s allegations. The longtime Democrat figure’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, has faced multiple allegations of sexual assault and infamously engaged in an affair with then-White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.

If it seems like people aren’t exactly ecstatic about Joe Biden, the latest fundraising numbers should remove all doubt.
Biden has always been a lackluster fundraiser whose campaign has had money woes throughout the Democratic primaries. Only the reluctant support of the Party establishment allowed him to prevail in the race against Senator Bernie Sanders and his army of enthusiastic small-dollar donors.

We had CDC, the folks for Centers of Disease Control stationed in other countries to anticipate when we might see a virus coming, a pandemic coming,  because there’s going to be more of these. I would be much more engaged in the world. We can’t step back. If, in fact, for example, we solve the problem in the United States of America and you don’t solve it in other parts of the world, you know what’s going to happen. You’re going to have travel bans, you’re going to not be able to do, have economic intercourse around the world.

A 101-year-old New York woman who survived cancer and the Spanish influenza pandemic has now overcome her battle with the deadly coronavirus.
Angelina Friedman, whose mother died giving birth to her on a ship bringing immigrants from Italy to New York City during the second portion of the Spanish flu in 1918, has been deemed a “superhuman” by members of her family.
Friedman, who has also overcome miscarriages and sepsis, has outlived her husband and all of her 10 siblings.
“Her mother died giving birth on the ship, and she was taken care of by her two sisters, who were also on board,” Friedman’s daughter Joanne Merola said in an interview with Pix11.
After disembarking, Friedman and her sisters were reunited with their father in Brooklyn, New York. She later married Harold Friedman and both of them contracted cancer shortly after. “She and my dad had cancer at the same time,” Merola said. “She survived. He didn’t.”

We are getting more insight into the thinking of the corrupt FBI officials involved in the plot against Donald Trump – in particular what they knew and when they knew about the smear/leak operation using the shady “dossier.”
Our new understanding comes from 138 pages of emails between former FBI official Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page.
These include an email dated January 10, 2017, in which Strzok said that the version of the dossier published by BuzzFeed was “identical” to the version given to the FBI by Sen. John McCain and had “differences” from the dossier provided to the FBI by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson and Mother Jones reporter David Corn. January 10, 2017, is the same day BuzzFeed published the anti-Trump dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele.

The emails also show Strzok and other FBI agents mocking President Trump a few weeks before he was inaugurated. In addition, the emails reveal that Strzok communicated with then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe about the “leak investigation” tied to the Clinton Foundation (the very leak in which McCabe was later implicated).
We received the records in our January 2018 FOIA lawsuit filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a December 2017 request for all communications between Strzok and Page (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00154)).
‘Bigoted Woman’: Two Words that Killed the UK Left and Led to Brexit, Ten Years Ago Today
Gordon Brown APAssociated Press
OLIVER JJ LANE28 Apr 2020779
On this day ten years ago, a hot-mic moment by a fading prime minister changed the course of British history and became one of a thousand straws that contributed to the breaking of the political consensus’s back, playing its part in both Brexit and Boris Johnson’s 2019 landslide election.

On April 28th, 2010, Labour’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown was touring northern constituencies, campaigning for that year’s general election. Meeting a voter in the street, Mr Brown talked to Gillian Duffy, who listed among her concerns high levels of taxation and mass migration to Britain from the European Union.
Clearly dissatisfied with the encounter, Prime Minister Brown got into his car and was driven away. What he had forgotten was he was still wearing a radio microphone, so the television cameras could capture his visit.

Sharing his disgust of the 65-year-old widow with an aide, and inadvertently broadcasting it, he said: “That was a disaster… should never have put me in with that woman. Whose idea was that? … she was just a sort of bigoted woman. She said she used be Labour. I mean it’s just ridiculous.”

Caught in the act, Mr Brown later gave a strange sort of apology on national radio, explaining that he had found being taken to task over historically high levels of immigration as “annoying”.

This encounter only happened because — as a Sky News report of the time pointed out — Brown was coming under criticism for only talking to his own supporters. Given how well talking to an ordinary person in an unscripted meeting went, you can see why the political class still so carefully choreograph their forays into the outside world.
It was one of the most sensational hot-mic moments in history, and Gordon Brown found himself out of office within two weeks.
It has been claimed the ‘bigoted woman’ remarks, as they came to be known, changed the course of the 2010 election. Perhaps it did. Despite Brown’s contrite apology immediately afterwards, it dominated the last days of the campaign. With the political mood music set after 13 years of Labour government and so soon after the 2009 expenses scandal, perhaps Gordon Brown was never going to scrape by.

But the event certainly had further-reaching consequences. In one careless remark to a forgotten microphone, Britain’s only serious left-wing party showed for one horrifying moment its true face: the snarling, contemptuous reality of modern Labour elite that cannot stand its own supporters.

In the old world, Britain’s two establishment political parties could both depend on an absolutely rock-solid constituency of loyal, tribal, geographically-concentrated voters. Labour had its northern heartlands, the votes of today’s electors won from their great-grandparents a century ago amid great industrial cities and passed down generation to generation undamaged, despite the industry evaporating and the communities fracturing. The Conservatives had their Surrey stockbroker belt and the new middle classes who found their loyalty through Mrs Thatcher.

This rendered both parties safely able to ignore their core supporters, and able to bicker bitterly over the centre-ground where a small number of people, it was believed, would swing every election one way or the other. This had the obvious effect of bringing both Tories and Labour together, turning them into barely distinguishable centrist groups.

That was good news for the small number of people these parties were fighting over, but many in the unappreciated majority began to realise the parties they had loyally supported for years no longer resembled or represented them. Formerly working-class Labour had transformed into the sneering party of the wealthy and woke north-London metropolitan bubble, while the Conservatives had transformed from law and order to Heirs to Blair.

For the left, Gordon Brown vs Gillian Duffy killed the illusion. Ten years ago today, the mortar started crumbling from the so-called ‘red wall‘, the impenetrable line of traditional Labour strongholds in the north. Nearly a decade later, that wall would fall in the 2019 election with Boris Johnson’s landslide as ex-Labour voters voted Tory in droves.

It is also worth mentioning that Mrs Duffy voted for Brexit, as did millions of other people in what we now think of as former Labour heartlands. Those voters were instructed in no uncertain terms to vote for the European Union by their political masters in 2016, but rebelled — no doubt in part because they knew the not-so-secret contempt those leaders hold them in.

Birx Pushes Back on Trump Disinfectant Question — ‘It Bothers Me This Is Still in the News Cycle’
PAM KEY26 Apr 20205297
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx objected to the questioning from anchor Jake Tapper regarding President Donald Trump’s comments about disinfectants.
Partial transcript as follows:
TAPPER: There was an odd moment on Thursday, when President Trump at the briefing mused aloud about whether injecting U.V. light or disinfectant into the human body as a way to treat coronavirus could be something that you look into. You were sitting right there, as you know. Take a listen.
TRUMP: And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, you — which you can do, either through the skin or in some other way. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or — or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs.
TAPPER: Dr. Birx, I just want to give you the opportunity right now. What should the American people know about disinfectants and the human body?
BIRX: Well, first, that was a dialogue he was having between the DHS scientist and himself for information that he had received and he was discussing. We have made it clear, and he — when he turned to me, I made it clear, and he understood, that it was not as a treatment. And I think that kind of dialogue will happen. I think what got lost in there, which very — is unfortunate, I think, in what happened next is, that study was critically important for the American people. And you say, why was that important? Because we had an MIT study just from a few weeks ago that said — that suggests, when people are talking and singing, aerosolized virus could be moving forward. What this study showed for the first time is that sunlight can impact that aerosolization outside.
TAPPER: Right.
BIRX: This — this is why we asked them to do it. We’re trying to understand why people should be wearing masks. You’re wearing masks because you could have asymptomatic infection, and you will decrease your transmission to others.
BIRX: And I think the half-life in the sunlight is very important as we move forward to really understand how we can effectively create decontamination in different environments.
TAPPER: Yes. No, look, I get it. And I understand the importance of that study that the DHS official was discussing from the lab in Maryland about the effect of sunlight on having or, even more effectively, the life of coronavirus, the effect of disinfectants on nonporous solids, like doorknobs. But that’s not what the president was musing about. He was talking to about ways to take that science and somehow turn it into injecting U.V. light or disinfectants into the human body, which, as you know, especially with disinfectants, can be lethal. And the CDC had to issue a statement. Lysol had to issue a statement. I understand that you’re taking a generous approach to this when it comes to President Trump musing aloud. But this is potentially dangerous. I mean, poison control centers got calls from people, and they had to issue statements saying, do not internally use disinfectants. As a doctor, doesn’t that bother you that you have to even spend any time discussing this?
BIRX: Well, I think it bothers me that this is still in the news cycle, because I think we’re missing the bigger pieces of what we need to be doing, as an American people, to continue to protect one another. And we should be having that dialogue about asymptomatics. We should be having that dialogue about this unique clotting that we’re seeing. And we’re the first country that really had young people to this degree. Italy and Europe is about 8 years older than us, as a median age. So, this is the first experience of this virus in an open society, where we really can understand what’s happening to every different age group. These are the things that we should be talking about and focusing on. So, I think, as a — as a scientist and a public health official and a researcher, sometimes, I worry that we don’t get the information to the American people that they need, when we continue to bring up something that was from Thursday night. So, I think I have answered that question. I think the president made it clear that physicians had to study this. I think I have made it clear that this was a musing, as you — as you described. But I want us to move on to be able to get information to the American people that can help them protect each other and also help them understand how devastating this virus is to different age groups and different symptoms and different comorbidities.
TAPPER: Well, I would agree with that. I would say that I think the source of the misinformation is not the news media on this. But, Dr. Deborah Birx, we appreciate your — your coming here and taking our questions. And best of luck with your job. God bless you.
Politico Edits False Story Claiming Trump Owes Millions to China

JOHN CARNEY25 Apr 20204150
Politico edited on Saturday morning a story claiming Donald Trump owes millions to the Bank of China for a loan on a New York City office building, hours after Breitbart News exposed the story as false.

The story now begins with a note that it has been “updated to include comment from the Bank of China and additional reporting.” Despite the initial story being substantively incorrect and getting several details wrong, Politico did not issue a formal correction, as standard journalistic good practice would indicate they should. What’s more, the story continues to be wrong in several places.

The original story’s headline was “Trump owes tens of millions to Bank of China.” Now it is “Trump owed tens of millions to Bank of China.” But that claim is still wrong. Trump never owed tens of millions to Bank of China, as Breitbart News reported Friday.  The subhead is” The president’s financial dealings with the state-owned bank complicate his attacks on Biden,” another false claim that remains in the story.

The Washington, DC, based media company falsely reported Friday that Trump owes millions to the Bank of China for a loan financing a building located at 1290 Avenue of the Americas. The story said that the president would have to pay tens of millions of dollars to the state-controlled banks because the loan was coming due shortly, a situation which it described as “unprecedented.”

Breitbart News reported Friday that the story was wrong. President Trump is not the debtor and Bank of China is not the creditor on the loan to 1290 Avenue of the Americas. Trump is the minority partner in a real estate deal that owns the building, had nothing to do with arranging the loans, and is not liable for their repayment. Bank of China was one of a consortium of lenders in 2012 that provided $950 million but sold its interest days later when the loan was repackaged into bonds for investors.

Politico now reports:

After the first version of this article was published, the Bank of China issued a statement Friday evening stating that it sold its debt on the building weeks after the 2012 loan on the property. Vornado Realty Trust owns 70 percent of the building.

“On November 7, 2012 several financial institutions including the Bank of China participated in a commercial mortgage loan of $950 million to Vornado Realty Trust,” said Peter Reisman, managing director and chief communications officer of Bank of China U.S.A. “Within 22 days, the loan was securitized and sold into the [commercial mortgage-backed securities] market, as is a common practice in the industry. Bank of China has not had any ownership interest in that loan since late November 2012.”

The story also said that Trump’s “financial dealings” with the Chinese bank undermined his campaign’s efforts to highlight that the election of Joe Biden “would be a gift to the Communist country and America’s chief economic rival.” The Biden campaign and its mainstream media allies have been pushing back against this by claiming that Trump has lately been “coddling China,” despite the fact that the Trump administration still has tariffs in place on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese goods.

That part has not yet been corrected, although it too is false. “The president’s financial dealings with the state-owned bank complicate his attacks on Biden,” the story still says. But Trump did not have financial dealings with the state-owned bank. He was a passive holder of limited parternship shares in a real estate trust managed by Vornado Realty, one of the biggest commercial real estate investors in the U.S.

The headline on the story claimes “Trump owed tens of millions to Bank of China.” That is also false. Trump never owed money to China, the Vornado controlled trust did. And China’s interest in the loans was extinguished in a matter of days, eight years ago.

The story also fails to convey the critical fact that Bank of China is one of the largest foreign investors in commercial real estate in the U.S., making its participation in the financing of 1290 Avenue of the Americas far from unusual. The deal was the first time a loan with a Chinese lender participating was securitized, meaning packaged into a mortgage-backed security and sold to investors.

More corrections are needed.

Exclusive – Steve Scalise: ‘Sickening’ to Watch Pelosi Use Small Business Aid as Leverage

SEAN MORAN21 Apr 20209265
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Monday that it is “sickening” to watch House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) use small business aid as leverage to include more leftist provisions in future coronavirus legislation.
Scalise has collected stories from businesses across his district and the country that can no longer obtain a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan due to Pelosi’s objection to a simple renewal of the program.
Scalise described the stories as “heartbreaking” and said that he hopes his website will illustrate Pelosi’s “PPP obstruction.”
Scalise told Breitbart News, “I have asked small businesses across the country who have been rejected because the PPP ran out of money, trying to hold their business together, to share their story with me. And we received hundreds of stories, and so many of them are heartbreaking. Some of them are just trying to hold on to their family business and maybe the 20 employees that have been with them since the start of the company, and they might not be able to make it because Pelosi is playing these games.”

“I think the more we share these stories, it shows that there’s a human face to this game of chicken they’re playing with their livelihoods with millions of Americans, and hopefully that gets them past this hostage-taking attitude they have and gets them to a point where they reach out and help somebody and not do it in exchange for some unrelated liberal wish list,” Scalise added.

Nolte: CNN Stages Chris Cuomo’s Phony Exit from Basement Quarantine
JOHN NOLTE21 Apr 20209110
In the annals of propaganda, CNNLOL’s cynical and dishonest attempt to turn Chris Cuomo into some kind of selfless coronavirus folk hero is the fake newsiest fake news in all of Fakenewsdom.
Late last month, Cuomo announced he tested positive for the coronavirus and would continue to bravely host his basement-rated CNNLOL program — his hour of lies and anti-Trump propaganda and encouragement of political violence — while remaining selflessly quarantined in his basement.
So, for the last few weeks — and to the surprise of no one — Chris Cuomo made the show all about Chris Cuomo, all about his selflessness in agreeing to remain in his basement as a means to protect his wife, kids, and society at large.
He has also raged against those who violate their state’s stay-at-home orders.
Thus, with great fanfare Monday night, he walked up a flight of stairs, gushing how grateful he was to finally get out of that basement and see his family!

Fact Check: Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker Claims Trump ‘Showed Solidarity with Neo-Nazis’ in Charlottesville

JOEL B. POLLAK21 Apr 20201793
CLAIM: President Donald Trump “showed solidarity with the neo-Nazi protesters” in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017.
VERDICT: False. Trump said the neo-Nazis “should be condemned totally.” This is the “very fine people” hoax.
Philip Rucker, the Washington Post‘s White House bureau chief, claimed falsely on MSNBC on Monday that President Donald Trump is supporting protests against strict coronavirus stay-at-home orders in the same way that he supposedly “showed solidarity” with neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.
Rucker was appearing on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour with anchor Brian Williams, who was famously demoted to the cable network after repeatedly fabricating the news.
Rucker’s “neo-Nazis” claim is also a fabrication, one widely debunked — and particularly egregious, coming from the Post reporter in charge of primary reporting on the Trump administration. He is in a position to know better than the “fake news.”
President Trump condemned neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017 — “totally,” and repeatedly:
Aug. 12, 2017: Trump condemned “violence “on many sides” in Charlottesville, after neo-Nazi and Antifa clashes
Aug. 14, 2017: Trump condemned “neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups” in White House statement
Aug. 15, 2017: Trump condemned neo-Nazis “totally,” praised non-violent protesters “on both sides” of statue debate
The “fine people hoax,” used repeatedly by CNN and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, claims falsely that Trump referred to the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville as “very fine people.” It is simply untrue, as the transcript of Trump’s remarks, and as contemporaneous reporting by CNN, show. Trump was referring to non-violent protesters on both sides of the removal of a statue of a Confederate general from a public park as “very fine people” — in contrast to the neo-Nazis.

Ivanka Trump Fires Back at Joe Biden: Shouldn’t Dr. Birx ‘Also Be Able to Speak?’

KYLE OLSON21 Apr 20201438
Ivanka Trump fired back at Joe Biden on Tuesday after he declared Dr. Anthony Fauci should be the “only person” to speak about coronavirus in the Trump administration.
“We’d all be better off if the only person we heard from from the White House was Dr. Fauci,” Biden told Milwaukee’s TMJ4.

South Korean officials told the nation’s Yonhap news agency on Tuesday a CNN report claiming North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was “in grave danger” were “not true” and that “nothing unusual” appeared to be happening in the communist country.
Yonhap also found no evidence of Kim enduring any medical hardships ongoing at North Korea’s embassy in Beijing and Chinese government sources told Reuters they, too, had no evidence of a medical emergency in Pyongyang.
Late Monday night, CNN – an American left-wing news network with a long history of publishing poorly-sourced or false news reports – published a story titled “U.S. Monitoring Intelligence that North Korean Leader Is in Grave Danger After Surgery.” The story cited anonymous officials “familiar” with news about Kim’s health who stated only that the U.S. government was concerned about Kim’s health.
“A second source familiar with the intelligence told CNN that the US has been closely monitoring reports on Kim’s health,” the outlet declared.
The Chinese coronavirus – a newly discovered pathogen that is particularly life-threatening to individuals with preexisting medical conditions – is currently fueling a pandemic that has killed at least 171,000 people. North Korea claims it has not identified any coronavirus cases within its borders despite being sandwiched between China, where the pandemic originated, and one of the most affected countries by it, South Korea.
Kim, believed to be in his mid-30s, is widely considered to be suffering from obesity. Some estimates put his body mass index (BMI) at 45. The high end of a healthy BMI ends at 25; anyone over 30 is considered “obese,” according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Kim is also believed to be a heavy smoker, a risk factor for coronavirus complications.

Harvard Backs Down: University Says It Will Not Take Coronavirus Aid

Harvard University said it will not take the $8.6 million in aid with was granted as part of the U.S. government’s efforts to cushion the economic impact of the coronavirus lockdown, reversing itself and bending to U.S. President Donald Trump who said Tuesday that the university should not take the money.
“Harvard is going to pay back the money and they shouldn’t be taking it,” Trump said Tuesday at a White House press briefing.
Harvard said Tuesday that it planned to keep the money, promising to use it for student financial assistance but not for institutional costs.
On Wednesday, the university reversed itself. Harvard has an endowment worth nearly $41 billion, a fund so large that some have described it as “a hedge fund disguised as a university.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Urges Work Boycott in Reopened States

Appearing on VICE’s Seat at the Table with Anand Giridharadas, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) urged Americans not to return to work after states begin reopening their respective economies in response to updated information on the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
“We talk about this idea of ‘reopening society.’ Only in America does [President Trump] — when the president tweets about liberation, does he mean ‘go back to work,'” Ocasio-Cortez said. “When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot of people should just say, ‘No, we’re not going back to that. We’re not going back to working 70 hour weeks just so that we can put food on the table and not even feel any sort of semblance of security in our lives.'”

Wisconsin Sheriff Says He Will Not Enforce Stay-at-Home Order, Cites Constitutional Rights

HANNAH BLEAU18 Apr 20207054
Wisconsin’s Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling indicated in a statement on Friday he will not enforce the state’s stay-at-home order, which Gov. Tony Evers (D) extended through May 26.

The sheriff provided an update to Racine County citizens on Friday, outlining his position on the enforcement of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ (DHS) public health emergency order.

While Wisconsin law gives both the governor and Wisconsin DHS “the authority to develop emergency measures and enforce rules and order to protect the public during a health crisis,” Schmaling emphasized that state law “does not have the power to supersede or suspend the Constitutional rights of American citizens.”

He urged the state’s DHS to “develop a workable plan that balances the safety of our citizens while at the same time acknowledging the fact that there is a way for business to operate even during the current health situation.”

“I have all the confidence in Racine County business owners that they can make the appropriate adjustments in the way they operate during this difficult time to accommodate for the safety of their employees and guests,” he wrote, warning that the “overreaching measures taken by State government will have dire lifetime consequences for businesses, homeowners, and families.”

“I took an oath to uphold the constitutional rights of our citizens and I can not in good faith participate in the destruction of Racine County businesses or interfere in the freedoms granted to all of us by our Constitution,” he said.

Scientists: Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic May Have Started in September

GABRIELLE REYES18 Apr 20201121
The first cases identified of the Wuhan coronavirus may have occurred south of Wuhan in September, a team of scientists led by the University of Cambridge found. The South China Morning Post reported the findings on Thursday.

In a newly published study, which has not been peer-reviewed, researchers investigating the virus’s origin analyzed global viral samples and concluded that the virus must have first infected humans between September 13 and December 7.

“The virus may have mutated into its final ‘human-efficient’ form months ago, but stayed inside a bat or other animal, or even human, for several months without infecting other individuals,” University of Cambridge geneticist Peter Forster, one of the study’s researchers, said.

“Then, it started infecting and spreading among humans between September 13 and December 7, generating the network we present in [the journal] Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences [PNAS].”

According to the SCMP, the team analyzed the strains using a phylogenetic network — “a mathematical algorithm that can map the global movement of organisms through the mutation of their genes.” As of Thursday, they were still trying to pinpoint the exact location of “patient zero” and said to be hoping for help from scientists in China. However, some early signs were prompting them to look into areas south of Wuhan, where they say coronavirus infections were first reported in December.

Bernie Sanders Soldiers On: Not Going Down Without a Fight with Democrat Establishment
Bernie Sanders / YouTube
HANNAH BLEAU11 Mar 20204,406
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Wednesday delivered an address from Burlington, Vermont, following his lackluster performance in the March 10 primary contests, warning the Democrat establishment that it cannot win without supporters from his contingent and signaling his intention to grill Joe Biden (D) in Sunday’s debate.
Sanders addressed supporters on Wednesday afternoon after forgoing what has become a customary post-primary speech following Tuesday’s election results. He originally planned to hold a rally in Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday but was forced to cancel amid growing coronavirus fears.
“Last night obviously was not a good night for our campaign from a delegate point of view,” he said, acknowledging his losses but contending that his campaign is winning the “generational debate.”
Biden, Sanders said, does well with older voters, but younger voters — in their 20s, 30s, and 40s — Sanders said, “continue… to support our campaign.”
With that, Sanders issued a stark, straightforward warning to the Democrat establishment.
“Today I say to the Democratic establishment, in order to win in the future, you need to win the voters who represent the future of our country, and you must speak to the issues of concern to them,” he said.  “You cannot simply be satisfied by winning the votes of people who are older.”
“While our campaign has won the ideological debate, we are losing the debate over electability,” Sanders continued, adding that he “very much” looks forward to Sunday’s debate with his “friend” Biden.
Sanders took a demonstratively bolder approach, declaring that he “strongly” disagrees with the assertion that Biden is more electable and proceeded by listing out the questions he plans to pose to Biden at the CNN-hosted debate. He plans to grill the former vice president on medical debt, health care, student debt, mass incarceration, childhood poverty, and billionaire influence in elections.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is facing increased calls to drop out of the Democrat primary following his disappointing performance in the March 10 contests, as many media outlets and personalities deem his campaign as good as done.

Biden won the races in Mississippi, Missouri, and Michigan relatively early in the night. North Dakota, which offered the smallest prize of 14 pledged delegates, went to Sanders, and the race in Washington was still neck and neck as of Wednesday morning. The needle hardly moved overnight, with 67 percent of precincts reporting at midnight. That number remained steady well into Wednesday morning, showing Sanders up by less than half of a percentage point.

JOSHUA CAPLAN11 Mar 20201,497
Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, network senior political analyst Brit Hume said there is no doubt that former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner, is “losing his memory and is getting senile.”
A partial transcript is as follows: 
TUCKER CARLSON: I don’t want to be unfair to Biden, sincerely, I don’t want to pull one clip out of context. But, there have been a number of them recently, where the former vice president explodes in aggression. It’s noticeable. I don’t remember him doing that in years past. What do you think this is?
BRIT HUME: I’ve known him a long time. He can sometimes work himself up into a passion in speeches and so on when he’s arguing about issues in a debate. I don’t remember him exploding at voters, like he did [in Michigan] today and hurling profanity like he did, telling the guy he’s full of spit, expect he didn’t say spit…

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is changing its debate format to limit the rigorous standing required by candidates, at a time when there is renewed scrutiny over former Vice President Joe Biden’s fitness for the White House.

The DNC announced on Friday that the format for its next debate, to be held in Arizona on March 15, would have the candidates seated behind a desk, fielding questions from the audience. The format change, which was first reported by Politico, would be a departure from the past ten debates, where candidates stood behind lecterns and faced questions from moderators.

A partial transcript is as follows:
BRET BAIER: Senator, this isn’t a personal attack, but it gets to [the] question of Joe Biden’s mental acuity. It’s not something that just comes up anywhere. Democrats have brought this up, including Senator Cory Booker, who endorsed Joe Biden today.

Cyprus main hospital shuts after surgeon diagnosed with coronavirus
Cyprus main hospital shuts after surgeon diagnosed with coronavirusAFP
AFP10 Mar 2020225
Nicosia (AFP) – Cyprus on Tuesday temporarily closed the country’s largest hospital after its chief heart surgeon was among three cases of novel coronavirus confirmed on the divided eastern Mediterranean island.
The Republic of Cyprus had on Monday reported its first two cases of the disease — meaning that all 27 European Union member states have now been hit by the virus.
And on Tuesday, the Turkish-controlled north of the island announced the first case there, a 65-year-old German woman.
Cyprus is divided between areas under the full control of EU member state the Republic of Cyprus and the northern third controlled by the breakaway Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which is recognised only by Ankara.
Even before the first confirmed cases, fear over a spread of coronavirus had caused frictions between the two sides and sparked angry protests after Cypriot authorities closed four of the eight checkpoints on the line dividing the island.
On Tuesday Republic of Cyprus health ministry said it had put on lockdown Nicosia General Hospital for at least 48 hours to carry out a “deep clean” after its head of heart surgery tested positive for coronavirus following a trip to Britain.
“All scheduled appointments, admissions and all types of surgery are cancelled for the next 48 hours, during which time the situation will be re-evaluated,” the hospital said in a statement. “Disinfection of the premises used by the confirmed incident has already begun.”
People who came into contact with the doctor were told to self-isolate, and those who travelled to countries affected by the virus in the past 14 days told to stay home.

Poll: Mitt Romney More Popular with Democrats than Republicans

Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) vote to impeach President Donald Trump has made the Utah senator very popular with Democrats, according to a new poll.
Gallup reports that 56 percent of Democrats now hold favorable views of Romney, but only 23 percent of Republicans feel the same way.
Romney’s approval rating is up 19 points among Democrats from a year ago and down 22 points among Republicans.
The Utah senator almost universally angered Republicans after voting with Democrats to impeach Trump for pressing the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden for his role on the board of Burisma Holdings, a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm.
“The president is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust. What he did was not perfect. No, it was a flagrant assault under electoral rights, our national security, and our fundamental values,” Romney said on the floor of the Senate in February while defending his vote.
Romney, however, signaled last week that he would vote to authorize a subpoena as part of Senate Republicans’ investigation into Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma while his father was leading the Obama administration’s response in Ukraine as vice president of the United States.
Poll results are based on telephone interviews conducted February 17–28, 2020, with a random sample of 1,020 adults with a margin of error of four percent.
