    The closest thing Donald Trump has to a guiding principle has, is that any inconvenient or unflattering fact should be dealt with by pretending it doesn’t exist. Amanda Marcotte of Salon believes knowing that, it should come as no surprise that Trump’s approach to dealing with rising coronavirus infection rates, is to pretend the disease isn’t really a serious threat while doing whatever he can to hide any evidence to the contrary. Marcotte wrote that this weekend, the president’s main approach, which she said was long suspected became undeniable. Trump appears to believe he can just make the coronavirus go away, by “hiding the evidence.” She pointed to a Sunday interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace where he tried to brag that he passed a difficult cognitive test, even though Wallace made it clear he had taken it too and it wasn’t that difficult. He also wouldn’t directly answer a...

    PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo’s president on Saturday announced a one-year extension of the mandate of the European Union’s mission to ensure the rule of law in Kosovo. Hashim Thaci said in a statement the extension was made following an exchange of letters with Josep Borrell, the bloc’s foreign policy chief.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (CBS) — A downstate judge on Thursday declared Gov. JB Pritzker’s stay-at-home orders void. Clay County Circuit Court Judge Michael McHaney ruled that state law does not allow governors to extend disaster proclamations for more than 30 days. Pritzker first declared a statewide disaster back on March 9, and has since issued extensions every 30 days. The decision stemmed from a lawsuit filed by state Rep. Darren Bailey (R-Xenia). Bailey’s amended lawsuit argued a 2001 memo from then-Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan undercuts the governor’s stance that state law allows him to issue successive proclamations for the same disaster. In that memo, Ryan responded to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency’s questions about whether the governor could exercise emergency powers beyond 30 days after a disaster declaration for an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. “The governor would be required to seek legislative approval for the exercise of extraordinary measures extending...

Federal assistance would allow local governments to be reimbursed for debris removal, protective measures and the damages inflicted on the public buildings. In his request, Walz said Minnesota faces a projected $2.4 billion revenue deficit, adding that the coronavirus pandemic has only aggravated the problem....

    By Frank Phiri BLANTYRE (Reuters) - Malawi's opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera on Saturday was declared the winner of a re-run presidential election, a dramatic reversal of incumbent Peter Mutharika's discredited win 13 months earlier in a process that analysts viewed as a triumph for democracy in Africa. Chakwera, 65, secured the required majority, with 58.57% of the vote on Tuesday, the electoral commission said, beating Mutharika. Chakwera won election to a five-year term as president of the nation of 18 million people. In power since 2014, Mutharika must now either challenge the result in court or step aside. The vote was regarded by analysts as a test of the ability of African courts to tackle ballot fraud and restrain presidential power. The judiciary infuriated Mutharika in February by overturning the result of the May 2019 election that had given him a second term, citing irregularities, and ordering a re-run. Mutharika's...

    Coronavirus — Governor Gavin Newsom declared Thursday a budget emergency that will allow California to withdraw nearly $ 8 billion from a state reserve account to help cover a large budget deficit caused by the coronavirus. The state Senate will vote on the budget later on Thursday, followed by the Assembly the next day. It will take effect on July 1.

Newsom needed to declare a budget emergency to take advantage of it legally. The remainder of the deficit will...

    Coronavirus — The Government has kept for weeks the freezing of death toll from coronavirus. The Executive of Pedro Sánchez has maintained that the number of daily deaths has been zero between June 7 and 19.

All those fatalities were left out of the official count until that June 19, suddenly, the accumulated mortality was updated going from showing a total of 27,136 people killed by the Covid-19 to 28,323. That rise, which compensates for the drop made weeks ago by almost 2,000 victims, is also not related to the data transferred by regional governments. The coronavirus death count has become quite a exercise of arbitrariness. The figures rise and fall without correlation with the data transferred by the autonomies.

Every once in a while you'll even get a corrupt program thrown in there where the wife is on the payroll,” Giuliani said Tuesday night on “The Ingraham Angle.” Giuliani said that Democrat-run cities have more crime than anywhere and have mayors that are “out of control.” “A lot of them have a fair amount of corruption too,” Giuliani said, adding that "absolute power corrupts absolutely" and some cities have been controlled by one party for far too long.

    The Oregon GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate, Jo Rae Perkins, decided to let her “Q light” shine on a Facebook livestream earlier this week—and it was a doozy. Perkins, an unrepentant “QAnon” conspiracy cultist, told her audience that the state needs to be placed under martial law, with the National Guard being sent not just to Portland—where there have been violent protests over police brutality—but to rural places like Klamath Falls and Bend. Her reasoning: Busloads of nefarious antifa activists, financed by the evil George Soros, are fanning out to these towns to wreak destruction.  The only problem with Perkins’ scenario: They’re not. The only places “antifa” activists (as well as many others) have clashed with police—and the only protests in which damage has occurred—have been in Portland. There have, however, been a string of far-right hoaxes that have found audiences with credulous residents and even law-enforcement officers in these rural areas—utterly spurious...
    LONDON (AP) — Chelsea regained the Women’s Super League trophy after being declared champion on Friday because the season was curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The English Football Association’s board decided to determine the final standings on a points-per-game basis. Manchester City was a point ahead of Chelsea but had played an extra game when the season was suspended in March. “Football pales into insignificance at a time like this, but it also has the capacity to bring joy and happiness to fans and communities everywhere,” Chelsea manager Emma Hayes said. “For my players and staff, winning the league is something to be proud of and I will tell them that when I speak to them. “A lot of blood, sweat and tears from every player, at every club, has gone in to this season and it is important we recognize that and celebrate the fact we have ended...

    Six King Soopers stores in the Denver area have now been declared COVID-19 outbreaks by state health officials; two of those locations were added to the list this week. An investigation into the virus spread at one of the branches has concluded, but the other five inquiries remain active. The latest outbreak data was released by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment yesterday afternoon, June 3. The report includes 22 new entries, one more than the 21 that were added to the list on May 27, bringing the total to 292. (The first CDPHE outbreak list, issued on April 15, had only 83 outbreaks.) On this latest release, 70 outbreaks are designated as "resolved," but that leaves more than 200 that are still being closely monitored. The CDPHE considers a facility an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or the like are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or...
    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared a state of emergency in a region of Siberia after an estimated 20,000 tons of diesel fuel spilled from a power plant storage facility and fouled waterways. The spill took place Friday at a power plant in an outlying section of the city of Norilsk, 2,900 kilometers (1,800 miles) northeast of Moscow. Booms were laid in the Ambarnaya River to block the fuel; the river feeds a lake from which springs another river that leads to the environmentally delicate Arctic Ocean. Putin on Wednesday ordered officials to minimize the consequences of the spill. But Alexei Knizhnikov of the World Wildlife Fund’s Russia operation said the damage to fish and other resources could exceed 1 billion rubles ($13 million). The plant is operated by a division of Norilsk Nickel, whose factories in the area have made Norilsk one of...
    A Minneapolis city councilwoman on Thursday called for leaders to declare that racism is a "public health issue" following the death of an African-American man in police custody. Andrea Jenkins, vice president of the 13-member Minneapolis City Council, made her remarks at a news conference alongside Mayor Jacob Frey and Police Chief Medaria Arradondo following a second night of demonstrations of the death of George Floyd. Floyd, 46, died Monday after a white Minneapolis police officer identified as Derek Chauvin pinned his knee on Floyd's neck for several minutes while onlookers begged him to stop.
