    CLAIM: “Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country.” – President Joe Biden VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Trump had a plan that was complicated by the diverse policies of state governments. Biden, speaking at a Pfizer manufacturing facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on Friday claimed that President Donald Trump had left him no plan for the distribution of coronavirus vaccines. “My predecessor, as my mother would say, God love him, failed to order enough vaccines, failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots, failed to set up vaccine centers. That changed the moment we took office,” Biden claimed. President Biden is incorrect. As Former Senior Advisor to the Department of Health and Human Services John “Wolf” Wagner confirmed to Breitbart News on Friday there was a vaccine distribution plan far before Biden took office. In fact, a key component of Operation Warp Speed...
    Former Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow was caught on a Fox News hot mic Tuesday calling ‘bulls**t’ on comments made by Vice President Kamala Harris about the former administration’s vaccine distribution efforts. Kudlow joined Sandra Smith and John Roberts on 'America Reports' earlier this afternoon to plug the launch of his new weekday show on Fox Business, which debuted today at 4pm. At the close of the segment, Smith aired footage from an Axios interview with Harris, in which the vice president claimed the Biden administration had to ‘start from scratch’ with their federal vaccine strategy. ‘There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations,’ Harris says in the clip. ‘We were leaving it to the states and the local leaders to try and figure it out. In many ways, we are starting from scratch on something that has been raging for almost an entire year.’ While Smith claimed Harris was...
    The Biden administration plans to buy 100 million more doses each of Pfizer and Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine in order to vaccinate 300 million Americans by the end of summer.  'The biggest problem, I hope you're all asking me by the end of summer is that you have too much vaccine leftover,' Biden said at the White House Tuesday afternoon.   Biden delivered the update Tuesday on the heels of Vice President Kamala Harris getting her second shot of the Moderna vaccine at the Bethesda, Maryland headquarters of the National Institutes of Health.    President Joe Biden gave a COVID-19 update on Tuesday explaining that the administration would buy 100 million doses of each of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines  Vice President Kamala Harris received her second dose of the Moderna vaccine Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda  Dr. Anthony Fauci (left) and second gentleman Doug Emhoff...
    President Biden's chief of staff insisted that the Trump administration's plan to roll out the coronavirus vaccine was nonexistent after Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared to completely debunk CNN's much-criticized report that the Biden administration was "starting from scratch" with its vaccine distribution plan. "I think those two statements actually reconcile more than you might think. I think what Dr. Fauci's saying is, of course, a year of really amazing scientific breakthrough and discovery created this vaccine in record time," White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "But the process to distribute the vaccine, particularly outside of nursing homes and hospitals out into the community as a whole, did not really exist when we came into the White House." FAUCI DEBUNKS CNN REPORTING, SAYS BIDEN'S VACCINE ROLLOUT NOT 'STARTING FROM SCRATCH' "The way in which people get vaccine is chaotic," Klain continued. "It's very limited. We've seen this factor...
    President Joe Biden’s first day in office was a busy one as he signed several executive orders that countermanded policies from the Trump Administration. Those orders allowed New York Attorney General Letitia James to breathe “a sigh of relief” as they impacted lawsuits the state has filed over the last two years. In a statement, James said her office filed 76 lawsuits against the former administration over such issues as the 2020 Census, immigration policies and protections for the LGBTQ+ community. “Today, we can all breathe a sigh of relief now that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been sworn in as president and vice president of the United States,” James said. “Within hours of taking the oath of office, President Biden showed decisive leadership and took action to protect young Dreamers, women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and millions of others across the United States.” In...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson shared a video Monday that apparently shows a Communist Chinese official brag about having accommodating friends at the highest levels of America’s “core inner circle.” “This is as close to a smoking gun as we’ve ever seen,” Carlson said on the opening segment of  “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. We have our old friends who are at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence,” says Di Dongsheng, vice dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University, delivering a lecture to an unidentified crowed on Nov. 28, according to the New York Post.

    Barack Obama says he misses the 'fascinating' work of the presidency - joking in an interview with Stephen Colbert that he'd have liked to have a 'stand-in' so he could carry out a third term.  In an interview to promote his new memoir, Obama said that 'puzzling out' the biggest political issues was 'professionally really satisfying' - while adding that he did not miss 'having to wear a tie every day'.  'If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a frontman or frontwoman, and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, then I could sort of deliver the lines but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, then I'd be fine with that because I found the work fascinating,' Obama said.  The pair also swiped at Donald Trump, with Colbert saying that the...
    The 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic compound and a nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, were considered a major scandal in the Obama administration. President-elect Joe Biden’s statement at the time — then vice president and President Barack Obama’s reelection running mate — amped up skepticism of the administration’s handling of security before the Sept. 11 attack.
    Moncef Slaoui, the former head of GlaxoSmithKlines vaccines division, listens as U.S. President Donald Trump delivers remarks about coronavirus vaccine development in the Rose Garden of the White House on May 15, 2020 in Washington, DC. Dubbed "Operation Warp Speed," the Trump administration is announcing plans for an all-out effort to produce and distribute a coronavirus vaccine by the end of 2020.Drew Angerer | Getty Images Operation Warp Speed chief advisor Dr. Moncef Slaoui has had "no contact" with the Biden administration regarding the transition process and the vaccine distribution process. Since President-elect Joe Biden won the election, President Donald Trump has refused to concede and his campaign has challenged the results of the election in court. Despite his lack of communication with the incoming Biden administration, Slaoui said he "can't see" the transition impacting the vaccine distribution process. "We are focused on making sure that the vaccines are made available as quickly...
    Lamar Alexander embarrasses himself on the way out. Retiring Sen. Lamar Alexander is pretty much second only to Susan Collins when he pretends to be very concerned and very principled. You’d think now that he’s retiring and won’t have to ever worry about being reelected, he’d finally just blast Donald Trump for his coup attempts and his fellow Republicans for enabling them. Clearly, you don’t know Lamar. xMy statement on the presidential election. pic.twitter.com/m4gXnhY8ZP— Sen. Lamar Alexander (@SenAlexander) November 20, 2020 “If there’s any chance whatsoever that Joe Biden will be the next president.” What a start there, Lamar. “I believe the Trump administration ought to provide the Biden administration with all the transition materials and sources and meetings necessary so we have a smooth transition so both sides are ready on day one,” Alexander says. How very big of him. Meanwhile, this isn’t just about “recounting votes and resolving disputes,”...
    'We have never taken any money from the U.S. government, or from anyone,' Pfizer made clear. Vice President Mike Pence took to social media Monday morning to claim credit for successes in testing of a coronavirus vaccine under development by drug manufacturer Pfizer — but Pfizer said the Trump administration had nothing to do with it. "HUGE NEWS: Thanks to the public-private partnership forged by president @realDonaldTrump, @pfizer announced its Coronavirus Vaccine trial is EFFECTIVE, preventing infection in 90% of its volunteers," Pence tweeted. Donald Trump, too, bragged on Twitter Monday morning about the vaccine's efficacy.
    Kevin Winter/Getty Images A total of 264 celebrities and public figures were excluded from a $250 million advertising contract — which aimed to “defeat despair and inspire hope” amid the coronavirus pandemic — for being too critical of President Donald Trump and his policies, according to a Washington Post report.  Trump political appointees reportedly judged which celebrities could be included in the public health campaign based on past political stances. A top Trump administration official claimed “partisan political interests” swayed who was included in the contract, and many celebrities did not make the cut due to their support of former President Barack Obama and of LGBTQ+ rights. Jennifer Lopez was reportedly excluded because she criticized the president’s immigration policies during her Super Bowl performance while the document noted that director Judd Apatow was nixed because he “believes Trump does not have the intellectual capacity to run as President.” The campaign took issue...
    Washington (CNN)"We had a shortage last night of beds for babies," an official at the Office of Refugee Resettlement wrote to the agency's director on November 11, 2017."Overall, infant placements seem to be climbing over recent weeks, and we think that's due to more separations from mothers by [Customs and Border Protection]," added Commander Jonathan White. What White and other officials at the department didn't know was that the Trump administration had already launched a pilot program on the US-Mexico border that would eventually separate thousands of children from their parents and draw widespread scorn from around the country. Inside the search for the parents of 545 children separated at the borderThe exchange was indicative of the chaos that would ensue in the months to follow, as the Trump administration hastily implemented its controversial "zero-tolerance" policy, which called for the prosecution of all adults who illegally crossed the southern...
    The DNC War Room released an ad this week, targeting the Trump administration’s handling of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and asking viewers in swing states if they have “had enough.” The ad, which Axios describes as a six-figure buy, will air in key swing states as well as the nation’s capital. “We’ve done a great job,” President Donald Trump says in the ad, followed by a voiceover which asks, “A great job Mr. President?” “More massive layoffs,” the voiceover continues. “400,000 small businesses gone forever. Millions out of work.” The ad features Trump again, stating, “I wanted to always play it down.” “Loved ones forced to say goodbye over a phone. Over 200,000 Americans dead,” the voiceover continues. “Great job? It’s catastrophic. Had enough?”: “Across the country, workers are facing layoffs, millions of families are struggling to make ends meet,” said DNC War Room senior spokesperson and advisor Lily...
    A whistleblower told Congress that military police asked for a "heat ray" to use to disperse protesters from a park outside of the White House. D.C. National Guard Maj. Adam DeMarco revealed in testimony that he was copied on an email from the provost marshal of the Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region who was seeking a device called the Active Denial System, which is a weapon that uses radio waves to provide "a sensation of intense heat on the surface of the skin," and a Long-Range Acoustic Device known as the LRAD. The email said ADS, which has been dubbed a "heat ray" or "pain ray," has an effect that is "overwhelming, causing an immediate repel response by the targeted individual" and would "immediately compel an individual to cease threatening behavior." Federal law enforcement wanted to use the weapons to control the crowd that had been protesting outside the...
    Joe Biden gave an unequivocal defense of vaccines on Wednesday, responding to President Donald Trump’s contention that he and running mate Kamala Harris are casting doubt on their safety. Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, leveled his own attack on the Republican president, saying hes put Americans at risk by ignoring science. “Let me be clear,” Biden said after a 90-minute briefing from experts on COVID-19. “I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump.” Biden also said he would issue an executive order requiring people to wear masks in public if it were deemed legal, after first urging governors to do so in their states. In remarks after a lengthy briefing on vaccines, Biden said the public should listen to scientists when considering the safety of a potential vaccine rather than Trump. “We can’t afford to repeat those fiascoes when it comes to a vaccine” he said of Trump’s response...
    TRUMP: "Instead of focusing on radical ideology, my administration is focused on delivering real results. And that's what we have. Right now we have the cleanest air ever we've ever had in this country — let's say over the last 40 years." — remarks in Jupiter, Florida. FACTS: He's not responsible for all of the progress — far from it. All six air pollution measurements monitored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency showed that in 2019 the U.S. air was the cleanest on record. However, the most important pollutant, tiny particles, was essentially about the same as 2016, only down 1%, according to Carnegie Mellon University environmental engineering professor Neil Donahue. The same figures also showed that air pollution rose in the first two years of the Trump administration before falling greatly in 2019. Donahue and three other outside experts in air pollution said Trump was wrongly taking credit for...
    The Department of Veterans Affairs reached a low point during the Obama administration, Minnesota GOP congressional candidate Tyler Kistner, a former Marine, told Fox Business Network Friday. “President Trump is the one who helped increase the funding for the military, helped give us the capabilities to stand up to China, Russia, and the likes to make sure we have strong national security, and he also helped increase [funding for the] Veteran Affairs to make sure that we're taking care of our veterans after they serve,” Kistner told "Varney & Co.” MIKE POMPEO RESPONDS TO REPORT TRUMP INSULTED MILITARY: 'I NEVER HEARD HIM SAY IT' "Under the Obama administration, we weren't getting that," Kistner added. "Our budget was cut, we had limited resources to effectively carry out our job, and Veterans Affairs was the worst it had ever been. So I stand with our president and everything he's continuing to do for our military day in...
    Joe Biden condemned President Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic on Wednesday, saying that if Mr. Trump and his administration had "done their jobs," more schools would be able to reopen to in-person learning this fall. "If President Trump and his administration had done their jobs early on in this crisis, American schools would be open. And they'd be open safely," Biden said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware. "Donald Trump and [Education Secretary Betsy] DeVos have not stepped up." Biden accused Mr. Trump of "starving schools of the needed funding, funding they need now." He slammed the president and Republicans for being unwilling to consider a Democratic proposal passed in the House in May that would have provided additional financial help for schools.

    The parents of American aid worker Kayla Mueller, who was kidnapped and tortured by ISIS until her death in 2015, have slammed the Obama administration for not doing enough to rescue their daughter, in an emotional speech at the RNC.   Carl and Marsha Mueller on Thursday praised President Trump for taking action against their daughter's captors, saying she would still be alive if he had been in office when she was abducted.   'Let me just say this: Kayla should be here. If Donald Trump had been president when Kayla was captured, she would be here today,' Carl said.  'The Obama administration kept telling us that they were doing everything they could, but their version of everything wasn't enough,' he added.  Scroll down for video  Carl and Marsha Mueller on Thursday praised President Trump for taking action against their daughter's captors, saying she would still be alive if he had...
    Carl and Marsha Mueller, the parents of Kayla Mueller, commended President Donald Trump for his support during their Thursday speech at the Republican National Convention. They also slammed the Obama administration for not doing enough after their daughter “was taken as a hostage and murdered by ISIS.” Marsha Mueller said her daughter was a humanitarian aid worker who helped children at an orphanage in India and aided Syrian refugees in Turkey. “Everywhere Kayla went, people smiled,” she said. Kayla was working at a hospital along the border of Turkey and Syria in August 2013 when ISIS terrorists “stopped her vehicle and took her captive.” She was held hostage in a 12′ by 12′ cell for 18 months as her parents tried to work with the Obama administration to secure her release. WATCH: “ISIS terrorists shined bright lights in her face,” Carl Mueller said. “They shaved her head. They beat...
    The parents of humanitarian aid worker Kayla Mueller, who was taken hostage by ISIS and killed in 2015, spoke at the RNC convention Thursday night to thank President Donald Trump and blast the Obama administration for not doing more to help them. Carl and Marsha Mueller talked very emotionally about their daughter growing and the horrors of what she endured. Her father said, “For 18 months she endured and we endured an agonizing back and forth between us, the Obama administration, and ISIS. We put all our faith in the government, but the government let us down. President Obama refused to meet with us until ISIS had already beheaded other Americans. To this day we’ve never heard from Joe Biden. Instead, the Obama administration hid behind policy so much that we felt hopeless when they kept us from negotiating to save Kayla’s life.” “The Obama administration kept telling us...
    Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, appeared on "Special Report with Bret Baier" Wednesday where she addressed multiple coronavirus issues as the country deals with new spikes. "This time we saw wide virus spread across counties, across rural areas, across more metros and big metros all the way across the south, southwest and west almost simultaneously," Birx said of the latest coronavirus movement. "So this was an event that we think can be traced to a Memorial Day and opening up and people traveling again and being on vacations." PRESIDENT TRUMP PRAISES DR. DEBORAH BIRX "This is a very different epidemic than we had in March and April, and it will require additional tests. And so this surge and this degree of cases so widespread, compared to previously, does have to be addressed," Birx told Baier, defending the adminstration on testing. "I think that's what the...
    By Zeke Miller and Marilynn Marchione | Associated Press WASHINGTON — U.S. officials believe as many as 20 million Americans have contracted the coronavirus, suggesting millions had the virus and never knew it. That’s nearly 10 times as many infections as the 2.3 million cases that have been confirmed and comes as the Trump administration works to tamp down nationwide concern about the COVID-19 pandemic as about a dozen states are seeing worrisome increases in cases. The administration also looks to get its scientific experts back before the public more as it tries to allay anxieties about the pandemic while states begin reopening. Since mid-May, when the government began stressing the need to get the economy moving again, the panel’s public health experts have been far less visible than in the pandemic’s early weeks. Twenty million infections would mean about 6% of the nation’s 331 million people have been...

    Reuters June 24, 2020 0 Comments The Trump administration said on Wednesday that it would no longer directly fund 13 of its original coronavirus testing sites in five states, saying states were allocated money for testing by the federal government last month. U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health Admiral Brett Giroir said in a call with reporters that the 13 sites were those left among 41 sites the agency set up when the new coronavirus pandemic hit earlier this year, before moving on from the “antiquated” program to newer testing programs. NBC reported on Wednesday that funding and support for the sites in Illinois, New Jersey, Colorado and Pennsylvania as well as Texas would end June 30. Giroir called the NBC report misleading and said there are thousands of testing options. President Donald Trump has lamented the rising U.S. coronavirus cases and sought to put the onus on increased testing,...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's administration has confirmed that Trump has been wildly inaccurate when he has claimed he inherited "no ventilators" from the Obama administration.Ventilator figures released for the first time by the Department of Health and Human Services this week definitively debunk Trump's narrative about how his team was left "empty cupboards" in the national stockpile.A spokesperson for the department said there were 16,660 ventilators available in the stockpile in March for immediate use -- far more than the 10,760 ventilators the Trump administration has actually ended up distributing during the coronavirus pandemic as of Tuesday.And those 16,660 available ventilators "did not include any acquired by the current administration," the spokesperson said, speaking on behalf of the department but on condition of anonymity. The total number of ventilators available for immediate use in January 2017, when Trump took office, "would not have been much different" than the 16,660 available...
    Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad. Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the housing market before the 2008 crash guarantee that he will have a permanent place in the bottom tier of presidents. Also certain to be at or near the bottom of that list is Donald Trump. Trump has been able to maintain 40% approval ratings by effectively manipulating the lizard brains of white Republicans, but even before COVID-19 hit, Trump was considered one of the worst presidents in the two surveys of scholars done in 2018. Trump’s increase in attention to the COVID-19 crisis for the brief window of time between when he declared a national emergency (on March 13) until...
    The Justice Department's attempt to block the release of John Bolton's tell-all book has been denied.  Judge Royce Lamberth denied the request to block the sale of the former national security adviser's memoir, 'The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir' in a ruling Saturday.   Lamberth, a Reagan appointee, heard arguments Friday over Zoom from Bolton's lawyer Charles Cooper and Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Morrell, representing the government.  This came after the Trump administration sued Bolton on Tuesday in order to postpone the release of his book because of concerns that classified information could be exposed The book was leaked to the media the next day.  It contains a number of explosive claims about President Trump, including that he asked China for help with his re-election bid - a move similar to how Trump interacted with Ukraine, which led to him being impeached.   The Justice Department's attempt to...
    (CNN)Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday accused former national security adviser John Bolton of being a "traitor" in a forceful rebuke of Bolton's new book."I've not read the book, but from the excerpts I've seen published, John Bolton is spreading a number of lies, fully-spun half-truths, and outright falsehoods," Pompeo said in a statement. "It is both sad and dangerous that John Bolton's final public role is that of a traitor who damaged America by violating his sacred trust with its people.""To our friends around the world: you know that President Trump's America is a force for good in the world," he continued. Pompeo's comments come as the White House scrambles to halt the release of Bolton's new book, "In the Room Where it Happened," in which Bolton details a troubling and shocking series of allegations about his tenure as President Donald Trump's national security adviser. He alleges that...
