    United Nations – President Trump, and other world leaders, won’t appear in person at the U.N.’s annual meeting of world leaders next week, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, told reporters on Thursday.   Much like swallows to Capistrano, the world’s national leaders typically migrate each year to Manhattan’s East Side for the United Nations General Assembly in the third week of September. For the last several weeks, world leaders have been debating whether to travel or simply send a video.     While the U.N. Secretary General, the president of the General Assembly, U.N. agency representatives and New York-based country representatives will be present on site for the event, no heads of state or government are expected to...
    Pop music icon Lady Gaga believes that white supremacy is such a fundamental part of the United States that every American takes a sip from this poisonous well the moment they are born upon this soil. Speaking with Billboard in a wide-ranging interview, the “Bad Romance” singer said that she has been working hard to undo the white supremacist ingrained in her from birth. “I am in the process of learning and unlearning things I’ve been taught my whole life,” she said, as reported by The Hill. “When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy. Social justice is not just a literacy, it’s a lifestyle.” Regarding the latest social media campaign that had...

    Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Wednesday argued that the United States is “under attack” by the radical left-wing. Nunes, on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” was asked about California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) differing from President Donald Trump in beliefs but the two still showing mutual respect for each other amid the state’s wildfires. The California lawmaker said the problem stems from the “radical left,” who he said has “made it almost impossible for anyone to get along in this country.” Nunes also highlighted that some on the left still refuse to accept the 2016 presidential election. “That’s what the American people expect, and it’s what we should want,” Nunes said of the mutual respect between Trump and Newsom. “The problem...

    Woodwardpalooza continued into its second week as the celebrated journalist. In this episode, author Bob Woodward reveals that President Donald Trump has “very little idea what’s going on with race issues in this country.” This moment came during the author’s first appearance on a cable news morning show Wednesday morning since he began promoting his new book Rage. The new tell-all book, and second in which Woodward has written on the Trump White House, is based primarily on 19 (!) on-the-record conversations with President Trump. Audio recordings that have come from these interviews have dominated the news cycle over the past two weeks. In his first question to Woodward, Morning Joe contributor Eddie Glaude, Jr. flatly asked if he believes...
    A Philadelphia-based Black pastor confronted President Donald Trump at Tuesday night's ABC News town hall telling him that the 'Make America Great Again' slogan is 'tone deaf.' 'When has America been great for African Americans in the ghetto of America? Are you aware of how tone deaf that comes off the African American community?' Pastor Carl Day told Trump.  He also pointed out that Trump hadn't acknowledged America's race problem, to which the president replied, 'Well I hope there's not a race problem.'  'I can tell you, there's none with me,' Trump said.  The town hall, pre-taped in Philadelphia and then broadcast several hours later, had undecided voters pose questions to Trump, with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos there to moderate...

    Earlier this week, legendary journalist Bob Woodward dropped a “bombshell”: President Donald Trump admitted, on tape, that he purposefully downplayed the dangers of the coronavirus even when he knew how deadly the virus could be. Cue Democrat and their media supporters’ collective meltdown. The tapes are “even more devastating than Nixon’s tapes,” said Woodward’s Watergate reporting colleague Carl Bernstein on CNN. “Trump Called the Coronavirus ‘Deadly’ in Private While Minimizing Its Risks in Public, Book Reveals,” read the headline at The New York Times. Deadline was more stark: “Donald Trump Admits Downplaying Threat Of Coronavirus As CNN Reveals First Big Bombshell Of Bob Woodward Book.” Yet as my former colleague Becket Adams wrote at The Washington Examiner, the Woodward “bombshell”...
    Cuban-born Maximo Alvarez, whose parents fled Fidel Castro’s regime, said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is “influenced by radical people.” “I will no longer use the word ‘socialist’ because this happened in my country, this is in my bones, this is in my body. Socialism is just a name that communists use to fool you. And Mr. Biden may be or may not be, but I'm telling you, his policies, he's being totally influenced by radical people,” Alvarez told Fox News’s Bill Hemmer on Wednesday. Alvarez fled Cuba to the United States in 1961 as part of Operation Pedro Pan, which brought more than 14,000 minors to the U.S. as dictator Fidel Castro rose in power in Cuba. He...
    By Umar Farooq ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Falling COVID-19 infection numbers in Pakistan will not affect a Phase 3 clinical trial for a potential vaccine being developed by China's CanSino Biologics, which is expected to begin this month, according to officials running the trial. Pakistan’s drug regulator last month gave the go-ahead for the country’s first Phase 3 clinical trial for CanSino's candidate, Ad5-nCoV, which will be led by the government-run National Institute of Health (NIH) along with pharmaceutical company AJM - the local representative of CanSino.

    Rob Reiner has repeatedly called President Donald Trump a “white supremacist.” Now the left-wing Hollywood director is claiming that the president needs votes from white supremacists to win reelection in November. “In 56 days we’ll find out if there are enough White Supremacists in this country to elect a White Supremacist,” Reiner tweeted on Tuesday. “I think not.” In 56 days we’ll find out if there are enough White Supremacists in this country to elect a White Supremacist.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden referred to supporters of President Donald Trump as “an armed militia in this country” during his speech on violence in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Monday afternoon. In his remarks, Biden said: This president, long ago, forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. You know, he may believe mouthing the words “law and order” makes him strong. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is. Does anyone believe there’ll be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected? Biden did not specify if he was referring to a small...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s senior advisor Symone Sanders said on MSNBC that President Donald Trump had “fanned the flames and incited violence in this country.” Sanders said, “All last week we heard through the Republican National Convention that you won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America. You heard from a couple from a suburb in St. Louis that, you know, Joe Biden wants to abolish the suburbs. So today, we went to a suburb outside of Pittsburgh, right outside of Pittsburgh, that mirrors many of the suburbs throughout this country. Families who, yes, they’re concerned about safety. They want to be safe from COVID. They want to be able to send their children to school. They want to be safe,...
    But Biden responded by noting that America's problems have been exacerbated by Trump: This president long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence – because for years he has fomented it.   He may believe mouthing the words law and order makes him strong, but his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows you how weak he is.   Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?   We need justice in America. And we need safety in America.   We are facing multiple crises – crises that, under Donald Trump, keep multiplying. COVID. Economic devastation....

    Only people 55 and older can reside in The Villages, Florida. They come from all over the United States for a peaceful retirement, but tensions between supporters and detractors of President Donald Trump are breaking the city’s former idyll. Until a few years ago, The Villages made headlines as one of the US cities with the highest incidence of sexually transmitted diseases. But that was in the old days, when the elderly were more concerned with getting Viagra than the future of democracy. Today, something strange is happening to the more than 100,000 residents estimated to live in this placid city in central Florida, who travel everywhere in golf carts. Insults, verbal and physical attacks and even racist slogans...
    Bradley Cortright August 20, 2020 0 Comments Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden (D) is urging Americans to take a different route this election and vote for the Democratic ticket and defeat President Donald Trump in November.  In his acceptance speech on the last night of the Democratic National Convention, Biden laid out two choices for America: Continue on a path of “becoming angrier, less hopeful, more divided.” Or a new path “of hope and light.” “Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst,” Biden said. “It’s time for us, for we the people, to come together. Make no mistake, united we can and will overcome...
    Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry believes that it was inevitable that violent crime in the U.S. will get worse and warns that given the current state of affairs in cities across the country, the worst is yet to come. In a phone interview with Fox News, Landry said that while he has tried to be tough on crime in his state, he realized years ago that in other parts of the country there were signs that crime would reach “epidemic” levels. LOUISIANA AG SLAMS GOVERNOR'S MASK MANDATE AS 'EXTREMELY BROAD AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL' "When I became attorney general back in 2016, one of the first things that we tackled was we took a very proactive fight against crime," Landry said.

    Lovecraft Country Review: This review is based on the first episode of HBO’s Lovecraft Country that dropped on Disney+ Hotstar this week. And what a bizarre, crazy and fun episode it turned out to be! The first scene itself sets the series’ tone and mood right. Our hero, Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) is fighting during what looks during a World War. The scene is in black and white, and as he gets out of a trench, an explosion brings the first splash of colour. And we realise this ain’t no ordinary war, as we see monsters, UFO’s and aliens, not to mention a monster being killed with a baseball bat. Lovecraft Country Lands 100% Rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Here’s What the Critics...
    Miles Taylor, the former Trump DHS official publicly going after the president and endorsing his opponent Joe Biden, is criticizing him in a new video over his “disinterest” on Russian interference in U.S. elections. Taylor spoke out Monday in an op-ed and a video from Republican Voters Against Trump, saying, “Given what I’ve experienced in the administration, I have to support Joe Biden for president.” Trump swiped at Taylor Tuesday morning and called him a “DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE” who was welcomed by the “Fake News circuit.” In a new video from RVAT, Taylor talks about the difficulty of talking to the president about election security, particularly pertaining to Russia. He says that after what happened in 2016, many officials felt...

    Fearful that voting by mail could be advantageous for former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump is doing everything he can to harm the United States Postal Service. Retired U.S. Navy Adm. William H. McRaven, in a biting op-ed published in the Washington Post on August 16, stresses that Trump’s attack on the USPS underscores his contempt for American institutions. “As Trump seeks to undermine the U.S. Postal Service and stop mail-in voting, he is taking away our voice to decide who will lead America,” argues McRaven, who headed U.S. Special Operations Command from 2011-2014. “It is not hyperbole to say that the future of the country could depend on those remarkable men and...
    What would you think if local politicians decided to cut the size of their fire department while buildings in their city were ablaze? What about a general who orders his soldiers to stop fighting and surrender to the enemy? Something similar has occurred in the once tranquil city of Seattle, Wash., where in the midst of riots and over the objections of the mayor and police chief, the city council has voted to defund the police and reduce by 100 the number of officers on the force. The city council added to the indignity by cutting the chief's salary. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best resigned in her own form of protest.

    President Donald Trump told Breitbart News exclusively in an Oval Office interview on Monday that if presumptive Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden somehow won the election, there would be “chaos in this country.” “If Biden wins, it will be chaos in this country,” Trump said when asked to lay out the stakes for Americans as they consider choosing between him and Biden in November. “You’ll have Portlands all over the United States, which is anarchism. You’ll have much higher taxes. Regulations will all be put back in. You’ll be joining these ridiculous treaties where they’re meant to take—like the Paris Accord, which is meant to take advantage of the United States and which will cost tens of...
    Former president Barack Obama has weighed in on Joe Biden's announcement that California Senator Kamala Harris will be his running mate, writing that Biden "nailed this decision."  "Choosing a vice president is the first important decision a president makes. When you're in the Oval Office, weighing the toughest issues, and the choice you make will affect the lives and livelihoods of the entire country — you need someone with you who's got the judgment and the character to make the right call," Obama said in a statement.  Obama, who served in the White House with Biden for two terms, said that Biden choosing Harris underscores "his own judgment and character" — attributes that are "requirements of the job" of president.  Get...

Washington never crossed the Mississippi either physically or definitely; Jefferson never beheld it, but he extended our territory over a great area beyond it; Lincoln helped make the country one from end to end, but lived his life east of the great river.

    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Tuesday that authorities have found four cases of the coronavirus in one Auckland household from an unknown source. They mark the first reported cases of local transmission in the country in 102 days.

    The former head of the Food and Drug Administration has warned that the death toll from coronavirus in the US could climb to as high as 300,000 by the end of the year. “We’re definitely going to be somewhere between 200,000 and 300,000 [fatalities],” Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Gottlieb said the final tally will depend on how well Americans continue to respond to the health threat, especially in rural communities that haven’t been hit yet with outbreaks. “The concern now is that this has become so pervasive across the country that it could start to infect more rural communities that have largely been untouched to date and probably are a little bit more complacent...

    Nurses at a hospital for ex-combatants in Miami demanded on Wednesday more materials to protect themselves from COVID-19 and more personnel in medical centers, as part of a national day of protest that aims to end “rampant social injustice.” Posters and masks of the health personnel read: “Save lives, protect nurses” which was the only slogan repeated by the hospital nurses. Eddy Cruz, vice president of the National Nurses Union or National Nurses Union (NNU, for its acronym in English), convenor of the protest, asked the health authorities for “transparency” and “communication” about the cases of COVID-19 among the workers. Medical centers must “protect nurses, other health workers and patients with proper practices to control contagions, including providing optimal...

    Andres Aceves July 26, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) There were so many bad memes circulating at the time, but the one that broke me for good still hangs vivid in my memory: picture an alarmingly red canvas with the phrase "LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT" waving arms in all caps from the top, and thereafter a list of stalwart border-enforcement strategies in North Korea, Afghanistan and Iran, followed by a description of the unconscionable bounty a person supposedly receives when they enter the United States illegally from Mexico (Social Security, health insurance, was there something about a minor-league baseball franchise?). The meme has since been relegated to the internet's darker recesses because, of course, it was wrong in virtually every...

    President Donald Trump's niece Mary said she's 'absolutely confident' that the president cheated on his SATs and said other Trump family members know the story is true, in a new interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos.  In her explosive book, 'Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man,' in which she describes the president as being unfit for office, Mary Trump writes that her uncle paid a friend named Joe Shapiro to take his SATs for him so he could attend the University of Pennsylvania's famous Wharton School of Business.   'I've been told this by people in my family and I am absolutely confident that it's true,' she told Stephanopoulos.

    Fox News contributor and former Washington D.C. police detective Ted Williams called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comments on New York City’s crime uptick “BS" Monday, after she claimed last week that the violent crime surge was due to an increase in shoplifting caused by the coronavirus pandemic. "I think it is BS. That is the only way I can put it to you," Williams told "Your World" host Neil Cavuto. AOC SUGGESTS NYC CRIME SURGE CAUSED BY RESIDENTS WHO NEED TO 'SHOPLIFT SOME BREAD' "We are in a very dark place in this country right now." Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., suggested during a virtual town hall on Thursday that the troubling increase in crime is likely because struggling residents are forced to shoplift in order to "feed their child."

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended President Donald Trump’s decision to grant commutation to Roger Stone last Friday, calling the decision a “very important for justice in this country” during a fiery rant in Monday’s press briefing. Stone was found guilty with seven counts related to misleading Congress and the FBI during investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. He set to report to prison for 40 months despite concerns around the Covid-19 outbreak before Trump’s commuted him. Several outlets and political figures have condemned the move, including Robert Mueller who wrote a Washington Post op-ed against the decision and a National Review editorial that called it “indefensible.” “The Roger Stone clemency was a very important moment...

    Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Monday criticized what he called a coronavirus “testing problem” in the United States, saying it was “simply inexcusable” that his daughter was unable to get a test. “My son was tested recently; we had to wait 5 to 7 days for results. My daughter wanted to get tested before visiting her grandparents, but was told she didn’t qualify. That is simply inexcusable at this point in the pandemic,” Mulvaney wrote in an op-ed for CNBC. Mulvaney represented South Carolina in the U.S. House for six years before joining the Trump administration in 2017, first as director of the Office of Management and Budget and later as acting White House chief...

    Amanda Marcotte July 3, 2020 7:30PM (UTC) Of the many images that flowed out of Ferguson, Missouri, during the 2014 Black Lives Matter protests that erupted in response to the police shooting Michael Brown, by far the most iconic is Robert Cohen's photo of Edward Crawford throwing a tear gas canister. The police had fired the canister at the protesters: In a series of photos that won him a Pulitzer Prize, Cohen captured Crawford rushing forward, scooping up the flaming canister up, and throwing it back at police. The image was arresting for many reasons: Crawford's stirring courage, the brightness of the flames, the fierce pitcher's posture that Crawford struck as he protected protesters from the tear gas. But one undeniable aspect of...

It doesn’t matter how much disinfectant is sprayed into a theater, or how many seats are removed to ensure social distancing, the thought of sitting in an enclosed room full of people for two hours, many of whom are eager to ditch their mandatory masks, isn’t exactly appealing.

By virtue of that decision, non-essential shops will have to be closed from tomorrow and schools from Thursday, as well as any non-essential travel from to Leicester was prohibited, according to the Europa Press news agency. “The outbreak led to a contagion from the community and that is why we have had to take more measures; I do not want to have...
