    Alex Thomas September 28, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump played defense this week after a bombshell report by the New York Times showing that he paid only $750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017. The president shot down the story, calling it fake and saying that he pays “millions” in taxes.

Cohen told Yahoo News, that Trump’s “biggest fear is … he will end up with a massive tax bill, fraud penalties, fines, and possibly even tax fraud.” Later in the interview, Cohen added, “Donald Trump’s financial records are the Rosetta Stone for understanding the depth of his corruption and...

    For Christine Anderson, the morning she learned her home in Ashland, Oregon was lost to Jackson County’s Almeda Fire was simply surreal. “It looked like a bomb had dropped,” Anderson said. “Everything was flat. It was ashes. I almost did not recognize it. There was just nothing there.” A resident of Ashland’s Bear Creek Mobile Home Park, Anderson is the single mother to two twin girls. She leaves behind two small businesses, one selling plants and another selling her own music. On September 8, Anderson and her children were heading home from the dentist on what seemed like a normal Tuesday, the day after the twins’ birthdays, when they saw a plume of smoke in the distance....
    (CNN)The pandemic could have been the decisive moment in the fight against climate change -- an opportunity for leaders to bail out the environment and pivot the planet toward a greener future.Instead, CNN has found that some of the biggest fossil fuel-producing countries are injecting taxpayer money into propping up polluting industries. And exclusive new data shows these decisions are taking the world a step closer to a climate catastrophe."This is the one chance that we have," said professor Niklas Höhne, founding partner at the NewClimate Institute, a climate think tank, and co-author of an upcoming study from the Climate Action Tracker shared with CNN.The research shows that the world is running well behind its already insufficient targets of limiting...
    Scientists are calling for answers as to why the US arm of Oxford's Covid-19 vaccine trial is still on hold — two weeks after it was first paused.  AstraZeneca, the drug giant which owns the rights to the experimental jab, stopped global trials on September 8 because a British volunteer was hospitalised. She has now been discharged. Uncertainty remains about what happened to the unnamed 37-year-old because of medical confidentiality. But leaked documents claimed she developed 'transverse myelitis' — a neurological condition which left her struggling to walk.  Doctors restarted trials in the UK on September 12 after an independent safety review committee and the UK regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, investigated and deemed it safe to do...

The caption simply read: "Something is coming."

    DENVER (CBS4) – After a break from widespread wildfire smoke and far better visibility on Monday and Tuesday, northwest winds will transport considerably more smoke toward the Denver metro area by late Wednesday. In anticipation of the thicker smoke, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has downgraded expected air quality to the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” category. Sensitive groups are defined as very young children, older adults, and anyone with respiratory problems including asthma. Anyone in these groups should plan to spend more time indoors than outdoors particularly late in the day on Wednesday. (source: CBS) CDPHE has also issued an Air Quality Advisory until at least 4 p.m. Wednesday for the entire Front Range from Monument Hill to...
    A shooting occurred and multiple people were arrested early Wednesday morning during a mass gathering that marked the 109th day of demonstrations in Portland. A scuffle broke out between two demonstrators, and one man drew a firearm and shot the other, according to a press release from the Portland Police Bureau (PPB). The pair sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries and were transported to a local hospital, PPB wrote. Roughly 75 activists gathered near a public park and blocked traffic, despite orders given over a loudspeaker from law enforcement to stay off private property and walkways, the release detailed. Three people between the ages of 33 and 47 were apprehended by officers for allegedly interfering with a peace officer, escape,...

Trump will announce his pick to replace Ginsburg Saturday, with Senate Republicans promising a swift vote on the nominee. (Photo by...
    What makes Republicans walk like this? For months, Republican Senator Ron Johnson has promised to deliver a body blow to Joe Biden. Like the report being put together by William Barr and John Durham, this was one of multiple efforts to “prove” the conspiracy theories about Biden and Ukraine. That would be the same conspiracy theories that Trump tried to force Ukraine to back through an extortion scheme that ended up getting him impeached. For his part, Johnson has repeatedly attacked Biden by referencing disproven claims released years ago, touting information passed along by someone who turns out to be a sanctioned Russian agent, and trying to claim connections between unrelated events using a thin paste of innuendo and hand waving. Meanwhile, both the FBI and...
    (CNN)The death toll in the United States from the coronavirus pandemic has surpassed 200,000 -- the most fatalities of any country in the world.The staggering scale of that loss is hard to fathom. It's equivalent to suffering the effects of 109 Hurricane Katrinas. Or enduring the 9/11 attacks every day for 66 days. Behind those numbers are people: A beloved radio host, a navy veteran, a progressive pastor, 20-year-old siblings. But survivors and victims' families say that those tragedies have been obscured by rampant misinformation, and President Donald Trump's minimizing of the pandemic. Their message: This is not a hoax.

    Surprising virtually nobody, the Republican Party, led by Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, plan on capitalizing on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by being utter hypocrites. It isn’t a surprise that the Republican Party is filled with spineless, power hungry empty suits. It’s just depressing. Sen. Mitt Romney was one of the two or three Republican senators that some people speculated would safely pretend to have some kind of personal integrity and publicly acknowledge the anti-Democracy power-grab being performed by McConnell.  The one thing that many people forgot about Sen. Mitt Romney is that he has no scruples. He’s a billionaire who wants to be president and that’s all he wants. That’s it. Whether or not he lies to...

    Twitter/@atdanwhite A fake invitation for the "Fartlander-Ween" wedding went viral. A fake wedding invitation has provided social media with a collective laugh amid the coronavirus pandemic. Comedian Dan White shared a parody invitation to the “Fartlander-Ween” wedding on September 21 and the post quickly picked up a lot of attention. The term “Fartlander” was trending in the United States on Twitter within hours and the original post was retweeted thousands of times. At first glance, the invitation looks like it could be coming from a real couple motivated to keep their original wedding date in spite of the pandemic. But if the names on the card – Erica Fartlander and Dustin Ween – were not a dead giveaway,...
    Getty Malcolm Jenkins has been trending in Philly since Sunday, even after an up-and-down game for his new team. Jenkins led the Eagles’ defense six seasons before exiting for (slightly) more money in New Orleans last March. His name gets brought up in every press conference — and in every man cave around town — whenever the Eagles miss a tackle or blow a coverage. Fair or not, the former team captain cast a huge shadow. On Tuesday, Jalen Mills vented a bit to reporters when the man whose shoes he is filling entered the conversation. Again. “Can we please stop doing that? This team, we have enough leaders, we have enough captains,” Mills told reporters. “There is...
    Kaepernickism On September 3, 2018, former football player Colin Kaepernick tweeted, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt.” That was the beginning, of course, of a hugely ambitious Nike ad campaign, making Kaepernick a wealthy man—probably far wealthier than if he had somehow managed to eke out another season or two in the National Football League. Yet now, two years later, it’s obvious that Kaepernick’s version of woken sports politics—we might dub it “Kaepernickism”—has radiated across our culture and society. Moreover, as we shall see later, Kaepernickism has some interesting intellectual antecedents.   Yet first, let’s focus on the impact that Kaepernickism has had on pro sports.   The NFL season opened on September 10, as the Kansas...
    If there’s one thing most of us have probably noticed about the year 2020 by now, it’s that everything is very bad.

    Britons have allegedly been inundating the police non-emergency number 101 with reports of their neighbours breaking the ‘rule of six’ coronavirus law. It would appear that the case of a woman calling the police on a funeral wake in a pub garden because she thought people were standing too close together was not an isolated incident. Senior police officers have had to put more telephonist staff on call to deal with the rising numbers, according to sources speaking to The Times. The need followed senior ministers instructing Britons to call the police if they see people gathering in groups of larger than six under recently-imposed coronavirus laws. Health Secretary Matt Hancock even said that the police would “come down hard” on...

    (CNN)The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention abruptly dropped new guidance from its website about airborne transmission of the coronavirus yesterday, just days after publishing it.The agency said a draft version was posted in error, before it had gone through the normal review process, and reverted to its previous guidance, which does not mention airborne transmission. The back and forth by America's top health authority is confusing and worrying. Scientists have been calling for the risk of airborne transmission to be recognized by health authorities. Evidence shows the virus is primarily spread through droplets that come out of people's mouths and noses. Large droplets fall onto surfaces rapidly and can be picked up on fingers and carried to the...

    HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong's Disneyland said on Tuesday it will reopen on Friday to a reduced number of visitors and limited days, with enhanced health measures after the latest wave of coronavirus infections forced it to close again in mid July. Hong Kong relaxed more coronavirus restrictions last week, including reopening theme parks, after the testing of nearly two million people in a programme organised by the Chinese government found 42 cases. Disneyland said all guests will be required to wear face masks, and the park will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays initially. Indoor live performances will also be suspended.

    As the nation continues to face the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic and we near the November 2020 election, the Department of Justice released a list of three cities (New York, New York; Seattle, Washington; and Portland, Oregon) it designated as “anarchist” jurisdictions. Are these Democrat-led cities in a state of anarchy? No. While at first this is so absurd it’s laughable, the underlying intent here is important. Why? Because this is pretty clearly a move motivated by politics that puts state and local governments at risk of losing federal funding because of reported violence and vandalism at the summer protests.  Of course, people from these cities have been eager to show what life is really like in a state of “anarchy.” We can look at...
