    President Donald Trump said Friday that he anticipates there will be enough coronavirus vaccines for any American who wants one by April. During a press conference at the White House, Trump shared that three vaccines are in the final stages of the approval process. He said developing a vaccine as quickly as possible is of top priority.

He praised the doctors and scientists who have been working “around the clock” to get a safe vaccine out as quickly as possible. He then ripped former Vice...
    Trump health appointee Michael Caputo announced Wednesday he is taking a 60-day medical leave of absence from the department after discovering a 'lymphatic issue' last week.  Caputo, who was serving as the department's top spokesman, called on the public to go to doctor if they notice problems after he says he dismissed his weight loss for months.  He said that the weight change, as well as the 'violent threats leveled at me' over allegations of political interference in the federal coronavirus response, had contributed enormously to his stress levels.   Caputo, who is fiercely loyal to the president, added his thanks to Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, who he says talked to his personal...

Americans who get the vaccine won't have to directly pay for the shots or the administration of those shots. They will be paid for using taxpayer funding allocated by...

    Washington — In remarks that closed out the third night of the Republican National Convention, Vice President Mike Pence highlighted the challenges that have roiled the nation this year and cast the November election as an opportunity for voters to decide who will carry them through when the nation is tested. After his speech, President Trump made a surprise appearance as they listened to country singer Trace Adkins sing the national anthem.  "On November 3rd, you need to ask yourself: Who do you trust to rebuild this economy?  A career politician who presided over the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression? Or a proven leader who created the greatest economy in the world," he said. "The choice is clear...

    Growing their own vegetables, switching to one-ply toilet paper and eating lots of leftovers — these are just a few ways Americans are pinching pennies during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new research. Interestingly, over half of Americans polled credit the COVID-19 pandemic with finally teaching them how to be smart with their money. A similar study from two years ago showed this number is, in fact, up. In 2018, only 42 percent felt very smart with money; in 2020, that number jumped to 51 percent.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump aggressively asserted control over the Republican National Convention on Monday, overshadowing the prime-time speakers, as he made clear he wants voters to focus on him. Here are key takeaways from the first night of the convention: AN OMNIPRESENT CONVENTION PRESENCE Trump. Trump. And more Trump. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Trump showed he will be omnipresent at the convention, appearing every night and sure to dominate the proceedings.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden called out anger and division in the country as he accepted his party's nomination Thursday – vowing to unite the country and represent even those who do not support him – not just his political 'base.' 'Too much anger, too much fear, too much division,' Biden said, early in his remarks. He said President Trump had 'cloaked America in darkness,' and blasted Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus. Speaking in the Chase Center in Wilmington a night after running mate Sen.

    The easiest thing in the world, if we didn't have an entire political party dedicated to screwing it up. You don't really hear any reports of violent "pro-maskers." It's not much of a thing. We have video clips aplenty of anti-mask Americans freaking The Entire Hell out at being forced to wear a strip of cloth over their sneeze-holes during an ongoing deadly pandemic, but there are no gun-toting public health believers invading state capitols to scream that masks need to be made mandatory in public settings. It's almost as if being a paranoid conspiracy freak about the gun thing naturally translates into being a paranoid conspiracy freak about a host of other things, but that would imply that people...
    Not that this should come as a surprise, but with the Republican National Convention less than a week away, Donald Trump is sending every possible signal that whatever its official themes may be the GOP gathering’s true subject will be white grievance politics. Unlike in the past, where concerns about not appearing overtly racist have forced Republicans to resort to dog whistles and coded language, Trump seems to believe to that his best bet is to serve the racism straight up, thereby vanquishing any remaining doubts about whether our president is actually a white supremacist. Late Tuesday night, Trump praised Laura Loomer, who won the Republican primary in Florida’s 21st congressional district, which is Trump’s official place of residence. To call Loomer a “far right” or “fringe” candidate is understating the case. She’s an obsessive bigot...

Now more than ever, we understand that broadband must be extended to places...
    Night one of the Democratic National Convention on Monday was about the issue on top of every Democrats mind: unity. It’s no secret that Democrats struggled to come together in 2016. Bernie Sanders was late to endorse Hillary Clinton and hundreds of thousands of progressives voted third party – most for Green Party candidate Jill Stein – or sat 2016 out. The primary in 2016 had been so full of vitriol with prominent lefties, including Sanders himself, arguing that Clinton and Trump were two sides of the same coin. His supporters listened. DOUG SCHOEN: DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION -- ON FIRST NIGHT THIS IS WHAT WORKED AND WHAT DIDN'T Not this time around, though. Democrats aren’t taking any chances. Headlining the first...
    In Donald Trump’s America, women fit into two categories: “nasty” or “suburban housewives.” Conservative evangelicals are dupes who can be manipulated into believing Joe Biden is “against God” and “against guns.” African-Americans are a monolithic voting bloc who will pull the lever for a rapper, presumably because he’s Black. And Trump once suggested that Jewish people who vote for Democrats are disloyal—and that immigrants and foreigners are dirty and can never be considered real Americans. I could go on. Trump’s America is a cynical and base place where people are identified as extreme avatars and insulting stereotypes instead of as complex individuals. But is it reality? This worldview helped him win in 2016, because enough voters believed the caricature he...

    Madison Summers August 12, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is continuing to cry out that expanded mail-in voting will lead to a “rigged” election in November. “This whole thing with this mail-in ballot, that’s a rigged election waiting to happen,” the president said during an interview on Fox News “Hannity” Tuesday evening. He continued, “It’s rigged, and everyone knows it because you can’t send out 60 million mail-in ballots to everybody in the… who knows who’s getting them?” Trump then went on to answer his own question about “who knows who’s getting them.” He said the mailmen will get the ballots and suggested “people are going to just grab batches of them.” “And you talk about China...

    If you go to a restaurant in Gotham right now, you might be subjected to a temperature check. It’s no big deal, it takes a second — but it’s pointless; plenty of COVID-positive people don’t have a fever. So why do we do it? It’s part of a growing trend of COVID-19 security theater. We do things that have no bearing on our actual safety but that make us feel safe. Take masks. It makes sense to wear masks inside businesses or for any close contact with strangers. But why are people wearing them outside, when they’re not near anybody?

Officials have warned Americans not to plant the seeds, amid fears that some may be invasive species that could destroy native plants and insects. Osama El-Lissy, with the plant protection program of USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, said they had identified more than a dozen plant species among the samples they had tested so far. 'We have identified 14 different species of seeds, including mustard, cabbage, morning glory and some herbs, like mint,...
    More than 5 million Americans have lost their employer-sponsored health insurance due to coronavirus-related unemployment, according to a new study from FamiliesUSA. In response, Democrats are renewing their push for "Medicare-for-all". Just this week, 360 Democratic delegates promised to vote against any party platform that doesn't endorse single-payer health care. In their formal petition, they cite insurance losses from the pandemic as a chief reason why they consider "Medicare-for-all" non-negotiable. But this political ploy is based on bad information. While the pandemic has cost millions of workers their jobs, many of them still have access to affordable coverage. Citing the coronavirus-fueled economic crisis as a reason to scrap private insurance is deeply irresponsible -- and would leave the vast majority...
    “Mostly peaceful.” So goes the characterization of demonstrations that have routinely turned into looting and rioting for months on end, from Portland to Seattle to New York to Los Angeles. “Protesters in California set fire to a courthouse, damaged a police station and assaulted officers after a peaceful demonstration intensified,” read one recent ABC News tweet.

    Only two industries are worse off in the eyes of the public compared to before the pandemic: airlines and the media. An Axios/Harris poll released Thursday found that among 14 industries listed, the health care industry is viewed more favorably than any other since the pandemic began, with a 47 percent net approval for doctors, nurses and hospitals. Grocery stores were second with at 35 percent, followed by technology at 28 percent and food and beverage at 23 percent. Net approval for the media was at minus 5 percent, with airlines at minus 7 percent. The poll results are in line with other surveys that have showed declines over the years. The public's overall trust in media stands at 41 percent,...
    Black Lives Matter and and cancel culture are forces seeking to silence all Americans, said Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), offering her comments in an interview on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Loeffler identified the ideological Marxist foundation of the Black Lives Matter organization and campaign. “We Americans agree with this fact, the life of every African-American is important,” stated Loeffler. “It matters. We have to root out racism, but that’s not what this organization is about.” “They are trained Marxists,” noted Loeffler of Black Lives Matter’s founders. “They’ve acknowledged this. Their primary mission is to defund the police.” LISTEN: As co-owner of WNBA team Atlanta Dream, Loeffler opposed the women’s league’s plans support the...
    "Mostly peaceful." So goes the characterization of demonstrations that have routinely turned into looting and rioting for months on end, from Portland to Seattle to New York to Los Angeles. "Protesters in California set fire to a courthouse, damaged a police station and assaulted officers after a peaceful demonstration intensified," read one recent ABC News tweet.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS13) – All Americans could have access to high-quality, reusable masks, thanks to a new bill introduced into the U.S. Senate on Tuesday. Senator Kamala Harris and joined Senator Bernie Sanders and over three dozen of their Democratic colleagues in the Senate and House in introducing legislation to manufacture and distribute masks to everyone in the country. The bill is called the Mask for All Act. The legislation also provides pick-up sites for additional masks at community locations that are already providing essential services, such as post offices, pharmacies, schools, public transportation stations, and COVID-19 testing sites. It would also provide surgical masks and N-95 respirators to all workers in health settings. The Masks for All Act would...
    Democratic lawmakers have introduced a bill that would allocate $5 billion in federal funding to deliver face masks to every American household through the U.S. Postal Service as the nation struggles with rising coronavirus cases in multiple states.

    First came "Medicare-for-all." Now, it's masks for all. Declaring that “Masks save lives, period,” Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday introduced a bill that would provide masks to every American amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Today I am introducing legislation to provide high-quality, reusable masks to every person in this country free of charge. This is a no-brainer,” the populist lawmaker from Vermont and former two-time presidential candidate announced on Twitter. HUNDREDS OF SANDERS DELEGATES PLEDGE TO VOTE AGAINST DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OVER MEDICARE FOR ALL SPAT The independent senator who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate stressed that the U.S. is “the only major country where coronavirus infections and deaths are skyrocketing.

    “Socialism is dangerous, and we have a party and many politicians who are flirting with all-out socialism,” writes the celebrated Evangelical pastor Franklin Graham Monday. “Portland is an example of what will take place in other cities if Americans do not take a stand in defense of the nation—through the power of the vote,” Rev. Graham tweeted in response to the mayhem that has taken hold of the West-Coast city. Rev. Graham, the son of “America’s Pastor” Billy Graham, urged Americans who love their country to learn their lesson and vote out Democrat leadership. “In looking at the chaos that has erupted in cities controlled by liberal, socialist-leaning leadership, it should not only grieve us, but it should cause great...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some encouraging news and some sobering news about a COVID-19 vaccine, when might one be available – and will people actually take it? In his latest Max Minute report, CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez has the details about a coronavirus vaccine. Virtually since the beginning of the pandemic five months ago, much of America has hung its hopes on a coronavirus vaccine to beat the pandemic and get back to some version of normal life. And while some vaccine candidates may be getting closer, a new poll questions whether people will even take a COVID-19 vaccine.

    (CNN)In remembering disabled activists who were instrumental in the creation of America's disability rights movement and imagining what a more inclusive movement for social justice and full civil rights for the future could look like, we keep coming back to the partnership during the late 1970s between the Black Panther Party and the 504 activists, disability rights advocates who were pushing for implementation of a long-delayed section (section 504) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Vilissa ThompsonDavid J. Johns Prior to the 1990 enactment the Americans with Disabilities Act, section 504 was the most important disability rights legislation in the US. Modeled on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 prohibited those who received federal aid from discriminating...
    President Donald Trump said Tuesday evening that all Americans should wear masks when they cannot socially distance to prevent the spread of coronavirus. “Young adults may often have mild or even no symptoms,” Trump told reporters gathered in the White House briefing for his first coronavirus task force briefing in months. “They won’t even know they’re sick. They won’t have any idea that they have a virus. They won’t have any idea at all. America’s youth will act responsibly and we are asking everybody that when you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask.” “Get a mask,” the president continued. “Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact. They will have an effect and we...
    (CNN) — I scream, you scream — well, you know the rest. Americans will have an excuse Sunday to dig into their favorite flavors as the country celebrates National Ice Cream Day. We’ve got the scoop on all your biggest questions. Where did ice cream come from? Our love for ice cream goes way, way back. Thousands of years ago, people around the world figured out that cold + sweet = a delicious combo. Records show that some of history’s most famous leaders enjoyed cold treats, from Roman Emperor Nero to Alexander the Great. Even King Solomon was fond of “a snow-cooled drink at harvest time,” according to some Bible translations. Historians believe the ancient Chinese were the first...
    America lost a courageous pioneer of the civil rights movement who repeatedly risked his life to fight against racism and for justice and equality with the death Friday of Rep. John Lewis. Lewis was also a master legislator in Congress and a visionary who changed the course of history for the better, and a man I was blessed to have met many times. Lewis was brutally beaten, unjustly jailed and almost killed in the struggle to end segregation in the Jim Crow South and win the right to vote for Black Americans. He literally shed his blood to give African Americans in my generation opportunities he never had growing up. We all owe him a personal debt of gratitude we...
    A new poll on the coronavirus shows President Donald Trump's disapproval rating hitting a new low, with nearly two-thirds of the country not trusting what he says about the pandemic. The low assessments of the president's reliability come as the president leads the charge on reopening schools and getting the country back to work, after touting unproven medical treatments that failed to pan out. Approval of Trump's handling of the coronavirus among Americans is just 38 per cent – with 60 per cent disapproval.

    The Manila Bulletin, the Philippines’ largest English-language newspaper, published remarks on Wednesday allegedly made by President Rodrigo Duterte in which he threatened to blow up any international court that tries him for human rights abuses. Since his rise to the presidency in 2016, Duterte has faced consistent challenges to his anti-drug policy, which largely consists of allowing Philippine police officers to kill suspected drug users and traffickers. Duterte has regularly responded to criticism from human rights groups by threatening violence against them or hurling profanities. Duterte reportedly once again threatened to bomb critics in remarks on Monday, according to the Bulletin. Duterte delivered a speech in the city of Jolo that day to thank Philippine military officers fighting terrorist groups and other...
    "Ingraham Angle" host Laura Ingraham insisted Wednesday that any new executive orders and restrictions pitched as helping to contain the coronavirus pandemic should receive full scrutiny from legislators and the public. Ingraham noted that some recommendations and guidance from both elected officials and medical professionals has been directly contradicted within a matter of months.  governors and medical professionals are ordering people to do have been subject to conflicting directives in the past. "Back in January, [the CDC] recommended against masks and Dr. [Anthony] Fauci repeated that guidance in March ..." Ingraham said by way of example. "Now, he explained his mask flip and he's in favor of them, saying those comments initially [were] motivated [by] concern for saving masks for health care workers. "Facebook, by the way, now...
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is officially urging all Americans to wear face masks to stem the spread of COVID-19.  Leaders from the agency penned an editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published Tuesday affirming studies that found the U.S. could get the pandemic under control if face masks were worn universally. The agency has previously recommended wearing masks when social distancing isn't possible.  “We are not defenseless against COVID-19,” CDC Director Robert Redfield said in a statement. “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to...
    Statues of Christopher Columbus have been knocked down in the United States. The same thing happened with monuments of Confederate leaders. And in Portland they got to throw statues of founding fathers of this country, like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. The recent wave of protests against police brutality and racism that erupted after the death of African-American George Floyd at the hands of the police in Minneapolis has included a series of attacks on monuments that protesters link to slavery and colonialism. The movement reached Europe. In the United Kingdom, protesters tore down a statue of British slaver Edward Colston in the English city of Bristol, and in Belgium they damaged and removed monuments to Leopold II, the 19th-century...
    Getty President Donald Trump has signaled interest in another round of stimulus payments — but this likely won’t be approved until August at the earliest. There have been numerous proposals for a second round of COVID-19 stimulus payments in the last few months, by both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. From a monthly, recurring payment proposal, to a one-time second round payment of less than $1,200, there are a wide range of options being considered with varying severity. Democrats in Congress have consistently advocated for more stimulus payment relief, both in the form of recurring monthly payments, and in the form of a single second round payment (as seen in the HEROES Act). On the other side of...
    Amid the worst public health crisis in a century and a devastating economic downturn that has thrown tens of millions out of work, more than five million people in the U.S. lost their health insurance in just three months this year, shattering the previous record set during the entire annual period from 2008 to 2009. The finding by advocacy group Families USA that at least 5.4 million Americans became uninsured between February and May was viewed by progressive activists and lawmakers as the latest evidence of the fundamental brokenness of a privatized system that ties healthcare to employment—and yet another reason Medicare for All is an urgent necessity. “If we had Medicare for All, nobody would be losing their healthcare,” Rep. Pramila...
    Jack Dorsey recently donated $3 million to a coalition that supports and promotes Universal Basic Income. The organization is called Mayors for Guaranteed Income, a network that believes there should be an income floor for all Americans, an idea known as Universal Basic Income (UBI). Dorsey, the billionaire co-founder of Twitter, announced his decision in a tweet, “This is one tool to close the wealth and income gap, level systemic race and gender inequalities, and create economic security for families.” Stockton California Mayor Michael Tubbs is the leader of the coalition that Dorsey donated to. He leads the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration, the first government-led guaranteed income initiative. Tubbs said in an interview of UBI, “This is how we...
    A new book released by Donald Trump’s niece revealed what anyone who has been paying attention already knew: sociopathy dominated Trump’s upbringing and he clearly didn’t escape its grasp. But what also became crystal clear this week is that the standard-bearer of the GOP has turned it into nothing short of a band of sociopaths masquerading as a political party. Perhaps Trump’s wild lie last weekend that 99% of coronavirus cases are “totally harmless” wasn’t a surprise at this point—the man lies about everything and has an exceedingly estranged relationship with objective reality. But watching White House chief of staff Mark Meadows enthusiastically defend the claim revealed just how depraved Trump’s cronies in the administration have become. Asked whether Trump had simply been generalizing on Fox News Monday, Meadows refused...

    Public approval of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus response has reached an all-time low, according to a new Ipsos/ABC News poll. “Thirty-three percent of Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the response to the coronavirus, down from 41% three weeks ago,” writes Ipsos, which also notes that Trump’s coronavirus response approval among Republicans has dropped 12 points since the mid-June poll was taken. Ipsos also adds about the poll: “Seventy-eight percent of Republicans approve of the president’s handling of the COVID-19 response, compared to 26% of Independents and just 7% of Democrats.” While the poll has been conducted 11 times since March, the president’s slide in coronavirus-response favorability among Republican voters represents the largest drop — 90% to 78% — that...

    Two-thirds of the American public disapprove of President Donald Trump's handling of both of the major crises facing the nation now – the coronavirus and race relations, according to a new poll. The president's rating on handling the pandemic was the lowest to date in the survey.[ SEE: The Latest News on the Coronavirus Outbreak ]The survey released Friday found that 67% of Americans disapprove of Trump's management of each crisis; 33% approve of his handling of the pandemic, and 32% approve of his approach to race relations in the aftermath of protests over police brutality against African Americans.

    TOM Hanks has urged all Americans to wear masks and criticized U.S. officials for a lack of “informed guidance" following his coronavirus battle. "There’s really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash our hands," Hanks said at a press conference last week promoting his forthcoming movie Greyhound, according to People. 2 American actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were diagnosed with Covid-19 in mid-MarchCredit: Refer to Caption The Oscar-winning actor spoke similarly in an interview with the Guardian published on Monday. “I have nothing but question marks about the official position as well as the individual choice.

    A pandemic is not the time to be having discussions about how to design a national health care system. The fact that the United States, which has 4 percent of the world’s population, leads the world with 25 percent of all coronavirus infections, indicates at a glance that something about our nation’s health care is irredeemably broken. In just a few months, more than 40 million Americans became unemployed in a country where a majority are expected to obtain health care through employer-provided insurance. Even the New York Times has pointed out that, “Nothing illuminates the problems with an employer-based health care system quite like massive unemployment in the middle of a highly contagious and potentially deadly disease outbreak.” The Times has hardly been...
    AMERICANS have lost all hope of getting a summer body this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new research. The survey of 2,000 Americans found 63% are now focusing their efforts on achieving a post-quarantine body instead. 5 Research shows that over 60 percent of Americans are now focusing their efforts on achieving a post-quarantine bodyCredit: Nutrisystem / SWNS Results found these long days in lockdown may have been a wake-up call for respondents, as 64% said they’ve felt an increased desire to eat healthier.

    Christian evangelist Franklin Graham reminded protesters in an Independence Day message posted on Saturday that the American flag has been defended by Americans of “all races,” emphasizing that it represents “the UNITED States of America, not the divided states of America.” “Happy Independence Day! I thank God for the men and women who laid down their lives for this flag and the freedoms that it represents,” Rev. Graham wrote, delivering a message specifically to protesters. “For those who kneel in protest to the American flag, I would remind them that this flag has been defended by Americans of all races—and it represents the UNITED States of America, not the divided states of America,” he said. “And may God continue to...
    With chaos raging in America's most populous cities, it may feel counterintuitive to celebrate the 4th of July. But the attempts at destruction from which our nation is suffering is precisely why we should be honoring Independence Day more gratefully and fervently than ever. There's one thing on which all Americans can agree: Our country, like all countries, is imperfect. From slavery, Japanese internment camps, Jim Crow, questionable foreign policy, and abortion, it's clear that America has gotten things grievously wrong at times — even at the cost to human life. What many of us cannot seem to agree on is whether or not, because of the injustices America has perpetuated, she is still worthy of our...
    Tuesday was a huge win for patients and a tremendous victory for all Americans in the battle for health care price transparency – which will lower the runaway health care costs chronically plaguing our nation and economy. On Tuesday, Sens. Mike Braun, R-Ind., John Barrasso, R-Wyo., Kelly Loeffler , R-Ga., Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., John Kennedy, R-La., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, introduced the Health Care PRICE Transparency Act, which would require hospitals and health insurers to post their discounted cash prices and secret, hidden negotiated rates. Last week a federal judge rejected a lawsuit challenging price-transparency rules developed by the Trump administration. The ruling is being appealed, making the Senate legislation to codify these rules even more important so...
    Most scientists and medical doctors have been stating that wearing face masks is our best protection against contracting the COVID-19 virus. It has also been shown statistically that a strong majority of Americans support this measure for protection. It then becomes quite puzzling to me why President Trump does not wear a face mask. Because of his example, many others also are not wearing masks.Related Articles Letter: Trump’s efforts to impose a racist regime will fail Letter: Coronavirus health risks are like drunk driving Letter: Removing presidents from bills is waste of time, effort Letter: Freedom versus liberty amounts to a false choice Letter: Citizens demand action now on illegal...
