    On a Thursday night in early January, the disease that would become known as COVID-19 claimed its first victim, a 61-year-old man who succumbed to the newly identified coronavirus in the city of Wuhan, in the People’s Republic of China. Nine months later, the pandemic took its millionth life. And while the vagaries of record-keeping mean we may never know who that victim was, the fact remains: COVID has killed a million people. Tens of millions of things undone. Daughters and sons unborn, works of genius uncreated. Pieces of communities — excised. Entire residential complexes filled with older people — ravaged. Human contribution melted away, with no way of ever knowing or chronicling what was lost. Accounting for what’s...

    Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential candidate, reacted to the report on President Donald Trump’s taxes by asking exactly who he owes money to. Harris spoke to Lawrence O’Donnell and, in a preview of the full interview airing tonight, the MSNBC host said, “Personal debt is a very significant issue when considering security clearances. What is your reaction that debt that the president has?” The California senator said Americans “deserve to have a full accounting of the financial interests, including the indebtness, of the president of the United States.” “Who does he owe the money to? Tell us. Who do you owe the money to?” she said. “And do you owe debt to any foreign nation? Do you...
    Carl Bernstein called the New York Times report on President Donald Trump’s taxes “the smoking gun of a pervasively criminal presidency.” The veteran journalist told CNN’s Brianna Keilar that it’s clear Trump and his family are “grifters” and that the reporting points to a need for the press and Congress “to find out just how great a national security threat to this country our president is, particularly in his dealings with Putin, with Erdogan of Turkey… Follow the money, follow the lies.” Keilar picked up on Bernstein using the word “criminal” and asked him about that. Bernstein said there’s “certainly implications of tax fraud to begin with that needs to be looked at” and the question of “what other...
    The FBI has finally released crime figures for 2019, and both violent crime and property crime were down compared to 2018. Property crime is at its lowest level of the past several decades, while violent crime is at its second-lowest (only 2014 has been lower). As for 2020, we won’t know anything reliable until this time next year. There have been several estimates based on sampling of cities, but I’d take them all with a grain of salt. For now, this is the best we have. Are you curious how your state stacks up? Here are violent crime rates by state:
    Thirty-seven years ago Saturday, an incident occurred that very nearly ended life on earth as we know it. That's not hyperbole or exaggeration; the events of Sept. 26, 1983, actually nearly caused nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union when a faulty Russian detection system erroneously declared that the United States had launched nuclear missiles. Only the gut feeling of a lone Russian military officer saved the world from probable nuclear holocaust. Many of the details of the story are shrouded in mystery and dispute, as they often are in a paranoid communist government. Communist governments — particularly of the Russian variety — are loath to admit error, particularly of the kind that involves nuclear...

    Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week” that Democrats were willing to end the filibuster if they take the Senate majority in November’s election. Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “If Democrats are successful in November, and you increase your numbers in the Senate, your colleague Ed Markey has suggested if Republicans confirm Judge Barrett, end the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court, is that on the table?” Durbin said, “Well, can tell you the future about the Senate rules is on the table and I’m part of it. The reason is this, we have seen under Mitch McConnell the destruction, denigration of the United States Senate. George, last year in the Senate, 2019, we had 22...
    ‘America will always be a leader in human rights,’ Trump said It’s not only in the United States where protests against racial injustice are part of the national conversation. A handful of America’s critics have taken note too, using recent months’ demonstrations and graphic images of police violence to denounce the country at the United Nations’ gathering of world leaders this year. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani invoked the killing of George Floyd, the Black American man who died after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed his knee against his neck even as he repeatedly said he could not breathe. Floyd’s death, caught on video, set off nationwide protests in support of Black lives.  Read More: Making 911 calls based...

    Kelly Craft, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, says the Security Council is failing to live up to its mission of making the world safer, more democratic, and more prosperous. Craft spoke with CBS News in an exclusive interview after a contentious week at the U.N. General Assembly, which is virtual this year. In pre-taped addresses, President Trump and the leaders of Russia and China traded sharp accusations over the handling of the coronavirus pandemic and economic crisis, as well as global leadership on issues including climate change. Ambassador Craft, who was sworn in one year ago, defended U.S. leadership despite the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from global initiatives like the Paris Climate Agreement and the World Health...
    At least 10,000 protesters gather in Bangkok for the largest rally in Bangkok since a coup in 2014, Aug. 16, 2020. (Adam Dean/The New York Times) BANGKOK — Myanmar is a poor country struggling with open ethnic warfare and a coronavirus outbreak that could overload its broken hospitals. That hasn’t stopped its politicians from commiserating with a country they think has lost its way. “I feel sorry for Americans,” said Myint Oo, a member of Parliament in Myanmar. “But we can’t help the U.S. because we are a very small country.” The same sentiment prevails in Canada, one of the most developed countries. Two out of three Canadians live within about 60 miles of the U.S. border. “Personally, it’s...
    Meghan Markle has presidential aspirations, according to a new report from Vanity Fair. The headline comes as news that her husband, Prince Harry, may consider becoming a United States citizen. Although representatives for the Duchess of Sussex insisted that she does not plan to run for political office, a close personal friend told the magazine that Markle might run for POTUS in the future. “One of the reasons she was so keen not to give up her American citizenship was so she had the option to go into politics,” said a close friend of the royal. “I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles, she would seriously consider running for president.” The words do not come as...
    The Republican-controlled Senate passed a resolution from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) reaffirming its “commitment to the orderly and peaceful transfer of power,” after President Donald Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transfer if he loses the presidential election. Manchin’s resolution read that the Senate “reaffirms its commitment to the orderly and peaceful transfer of power called for in the Constitution of the United States,” and “intends that there should be no disruptions by the President or any person in power to overturn the will of the people of the United States.” The resolution was passed by unanimous consent in the Republican-controlled Senate on Thursday. “It’s a shame that we have to come and reaffirm our commitment to our country,...
    x Vimeo Video The word “hypocrisy” has been getting a lot of use since the untimely death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg just weeks before the 2020 presidential election. Nearly a year before the 2016 election, of course, Senate Republicans refused to even consider President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland. Now — with voting already under way in some states — they will try to ram through Trump’s soon-to-be-named nominee. Mitch McConnell and other Republicans try to make an argument about a bogus “tradition” one year, but now they make an argument based on who is in control of the White House and Senate. It is getting harder and harder for Trump, Mitch and the gang to gloss over their...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of “trying to have the Constitution of the United States swallow Clorox.” Pelosi, addressing Trump’s plan to “wait and see” rather than simply accept the election results, pivoted to reference his suggestion that doctors find an injectable process to “disinfect” the blood and eradicate coronavirus. (RELATED: Pelosi Fires Back At Trump: ‘Ice Cream In the Freezer’ Is Better Than ‘Lysol In Somebody’s Lungs’) WATCH: Pelosi began by saying that Trump represented a “unique threat” to American democracy, asking how Republicans would explain to their children what he was doing. “We have a president of the United States who wants to discredit people’s vote,” she said in reference to Trump’s refusal to...
    What if we cracked down on Russian trolls and it didn’t matter? That’s the situation the United States faces as Election Day draws near. Yes, the President of the United States is still besotted by a diminutive Russian dictator. Yes, his minions who play legally acting officials on TV try to squelch even the tamest of warnings about Russian interference. And, yes, the president’s pals are still working arm-in-arm with men they know to be Russian agents. But even against those headwinds, the job of an Internet Research Agency troll is even less rewarding in lolz than it is in rubles this time around. In the years since 2016, In the years since 2016, America’s social media platforms, government agencies,...

    For all their policy differences, progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Never Trump conservatives such as former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Republican strategist Rick Wilson, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and the Washington Post’s George Will have something in common: a mutual disdain for Donald Trump’s presidency and the bitter, ugly divisions he has encouraged. Another Never Trumper, conservative journalist David French, discusses the United States’ divisions in a September 20 article for his blog and wonders if the country is approaching the point of no return. One term that never crosses the lips of Trump and his sycophants is “loyal opposition,” which essentially means agreeing to disagree in politics. During the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan had strong...

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani delivered a bizarre address to the 2020 U.N. General Assembly in which he claimed Iran single-handedly defeated the Islamic State, portrayed his brutal regime as a paragon of tolerance and human rights, and compared the Iranian people suffering under U.S. sanctions to George Floyd suffering beneath the knee of a policeman. Rouhani spoke of the coronavirus as a “common pain for humanity, thanks to the rapid growth of science, technology, and the media,” demonstrating that “despite all progress, our ignorance as humans far outweighs our knowledge.” “COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] is calling us to more humility, and more humbleness before the Almighty and the truth of creation,” he said. “It is guiding human societies towards civil piety...

    Chauncey DeVega September 22, 2020 10:00AM (UTC) On Sept. 11, Donald Trump proclaimed on Twitter that: "Pelosi and Schumer want Trillions of Dollars of BAILOUT money for Blue States that are doing badly, both economically and in terms of high crime, as a condition to making a deal on stimulus — But the USA is coming back strong!"

    Every campaign pitch is at its root a narrative, a story line about the ebb and flow of our history that acts as the orientation for the vote that is upon us. The candidate whose story line captures the most people is the one that prevails in November. For Trump’s base, the Make America Great Again cult, our nation achieved its zenith in the post–World War II era, when a white family could be supported by a single breadwinner. For them, Donald Trump was just on the verge of a restoration of those halcyon days when the Chinese unleashed the coronavirus and wrecked what he called the “greatest economy in history.” And now, as the pandemic body count passes 200,000, many MAGA voters believe the virus is...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.” Ginsburg, 87, died Friday from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer. “The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life,” McConnell said in a statement Friday. “In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise,” McConnell continued. “Since the 1880s, no Senate has...
    The New York Times describes Sweden’s approach to COVID-19, which has been notably less restrictive than the policies adopted by other European countries and the United States, as “disastrous” and “calamitous.” By contrast, Scott Atlas, the physician and Hoover Institution fellow who is advising President Trump on the epidemic, thinks Sweden’s policy is “relatively rational” and “has been inappropriately criticized.” The sharp disagreement about Sweden is part of the wider debate about the cost-effectiveness of broad lockdowns as a strategy for dealing with the pandemic. While it is premature to reach firm conclusions, the evidence so far suggests that Sweden is faring better than the United States, where governors tried to contain the virus by imposing sweeping social and economic...

    (Reuters) - Tensions escalated in Taiwan during a visit by U.S. Undersecretary for Economic Affairs Keith Krach on Friday, as 18 Chinese aircraft buzzed the island, prompting Taiwan to scramble fighter jets. Here are some facts about Taiwan's relations with China and the United States, and why the issue is so sensitive. CHINA'S POSITION ON TAIWAN China views democratic Taiwan as merely a wayward Chinese province and its "sacred" territory, awaiting the day the island can be brought under its control - peacefully or militarily - with no right to state-to-state relations.

Nearly 8,000 bitcoin distributors are in fact installed in the country. Canada follows by far, with 874 ATMs, followed by the United Kingdom with 282 ATMs. “ Article by Marine Debelloir to read...
    London (CNN Business)With roughly 100 million users in the United States, it's no surprise that TikTok videos have taken over the internet.But as the relationship between Washington and Beijing frays, the fate of the video app, which is owned by China's ByteDance, looks uncertain. In recent weeks, US government officials have claimed that TikTok poses a serious threat to national security, and President Donald Trump has threatened to ban it unless an American company takes control of its domestic operations.That set off a bidding contest that's roped in some of America's top corporations, including Microsoft (MSFT), Oracle (ORCL) and Walmart (WMT). While Microsoft is no longer a contender — the company on Sept. 13 announced its bid was rejected by...
    Twelve US states now have obesity rates of at least 35 percent - more than ever before, a new map reveals. More than one-third of adults in Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia were dangerously overweight in 2019, according to the data released on Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).   This marks 33 percent increase from 2018, which showed obesity prevalence at 35 percent or higher in nine states. Colorado fared relatively the best with an obesity rate of just 23.8 percent, while Mississippi had the worst rate at 40.8 percent. Racial and ethnic disparities still persist with twice as many states having at least 35 percent...

    (CNN)At a press conference on Wednesday night, President Donald Trump made abundantly clear how he views the country he was elected to lead: Through purely partisan goggles.Talking about the death toll -- almost 200,000 people as of Thursday morning -- from Covid-19 in the United States, Trump said this:"If you take the blue states out, we're at a level that I don't think anybody in the world would be at. We're really at a very low level. But some of the states, they were blue states and blue-state-managed."It's an amazing admission to hear from the President of the United States. And the latest sign that Trump really doesn't view himself as the President of the entire country. Instead, he sees...
    Thousands of migratory birds are dead in New Mexico. Biologists at New Mexico State University are trying to discover why so many birds have been found dead. Scientists discovered a large number of dead birds in two areas, and the department has now traced hundreds of dead birds in multiple regions across New Mexico. Martha Desmond, a professor at the university’s department of fish, wildlife and conservation ecology, told CNN of the incident, “It’s just terrible. The number is in the six figures. Just by looking at the scope of what we’re seeing, we know this is a very large event, hundreds of thousands and maybe even millions of dead birds, and we’re looking at the higher end of that.”...
    The president of the United States takes the following oath at his or her inauguration: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Donald Trump has repeatedly betrayed this promise, and should long since have been removed from office for doing so. The Constitution deems that the president is commander in chief of the military. As revealed by the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, Donald Trump believes that members of the U.S. military who have been wounded or killed in battle are “suckers” and “losers” for not being as selfish and cowardly as he is.

    Sen. John Kennedy introduced legislation that would negate previous rabies rules and allow those returning from abroad to keep their pets in the United States. Typically, pets that have not had a rabies vaccination or have had it expire are required to get the vaccine and quarantine for 28 days before entering the U.S. It takes the rabies vaccine 28 days to immunize and protect a pet. Kennedy's bill, called the Permanently Uniting Pets Stateside Act, or PUPS Act, for short, would allow pets to quarantine in the U.S. for rabies and other health issues. "The Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection shall permit the entry into the United States of a pet accompanying a covered individual...

    By Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Long-simmering tensions between the United States and China have hit boiling point at the United Nations over the coronavirus pandemic, spotlighting Beijing's bid for greater multilateral influence in a challenge to Washington's traditional leadership. Chinese President Xi Jinping has accelerated his U.N. power play as President Donald Trump's disregard for international cooperation led to the United States quitting global deals on climate and Iran and leaving the U.N. Human Rights Council and the World Health Organization, diplomats say. "There's definitely, in my mind, a battle for the soul of the U.N. going on," said a senior European diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, adding that Trump's "America First" policy has been "damaging because...
    Scientific American was first published in New York on Aug. 28, 1845.

That was in the early days of the James Polk administration. Since then, the publishers of Scientific American have not felt compelled to make an endorsement in any election, including those involving a candidate named “Lincoln.” But after 175 years, the  oldest continuously published monthly magazine in the United States has decided that there’s an existential threat to both parts of its title; a threat to “America” and “science” great enough to take a step into politics.

    New York (CNN Business)Halloween is around the corner, and Hershey wants to ensure coronavirus doesn't spook trick-or-treaters from eating candy.The confectioner -- which, along with its namesake chocolate bar, manufactures Halloween favorites Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats -- launched a website that maps out how to trick-or-treat safely in every county in the United States.The website prompts people to hover over their county, which is color-coded to display the Covid-19 risk level in that area. Green represents the lowest risk for trick-or-treating and red represents the highest risk. The map also lists the number of confirmed cases in each county.

    Surveys have shown most Americans care about animal welfare, whether it’s their pets, animals in captivity for entertainment or testing purposes, or even farm animals. Yet animals are abused in all these settings. Governmental bodies can help by enacting stringent animal welfare laws to help stop the abuse. While most animal protection laws are enacted and enforced at the state and local level, there are some significant federal laws that help prevent animal abuse in various contexts. Here are landmark federal laws that have been passed to protect animals. 1. The Animal Welfare Act The Animal Welfare Act (AWA) was signed into law in 1966 and is the primary federal animal protection law. The AWA covers animal carriers, handlers,...

    Bill GatesCNBC Bill Gates expressed confidence that a coronavirus vaccine will be available by 2021. But he remains concerned that doses won't be made available to lower-income groups, particularly in less developed countries.  On a conference call, Gates told reporters that the "next big question" his foundation is thinking through is how to manufacture and distribute the vaccines to those most in need. "It shouldn't just be the rich countries winning a bidding war," he said. "Misallocating the vaccine would cause dramatic additional deaths." Wealthy countries, including the United States, Japan and the United Kingdom, have pre-ordered more than 2 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines, which could leave limited supplies in the coming year. But international efforts are underway to...

    Residents of Harare, Zimbabwe, have accused nurses of turning clinics into illegal, yet highly lucrative foreign currency trading centers, the New Zimbabwe reported Monday. Locals complained at a neighborhood meeting in the Highfields suburb of Harare that they are unable to access reliable healthcare services at public clinics and have threatened to petition parliament to force changes over such neglect. “Our nurses are not receipting United States dollars we give them,” one woman said at the meeting. “Instead, they are taking the money and using their Ecocash accounts to pay for us while giving us receipts reflecting payment in bond notes.” After the meeting’s conclusion, a CHRA official confirmed that nurses were prioritizing patients with American dollars, presumably because of the worthlessness of...
    (CNN)Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Monday that the United States is facing one of the most difficult moments in the nation's history, with "four historic crises all at the same time." "The worst pandemic in a hundred years, that's already killed nearly 200,000 people and counting. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, that's cost tens of millions of American jobs and counting. Emboldened white supremacy unseen since the '60s and a reckoning on race that's long overdue. And undeniable acceleration of the punishing reality of climate change on our planet, on our people, on the lives and livelihoods," Biden said in Wilmington, Delaware. Biden said he and his wife Jill Biden continue to pray for those affected by the historic wildfires in the western part of the United States that have killed...

    Donald Trump’s response to handling COVID-19 is the worst in the world. The United States both tops the charts in the number of cases, and before Trump can claim that this is because there’s “too much testing,” it worth noting that the U.S. also beats all comers when it comes to deaths. With the U.S. sadly set to cross the 200,000 deaths line in the coming week, it’s far ahead of even Brazil, where would-be Trump Jair Bolsonaro has done seeming everything possible to spread the disease. As we learned over the past week, Trump’s failures to address COVID-19 were not a matter of ignorance and incompetence—though Trump has plenty of both. Instead he deliberately withheld facts from the public, downplayed...

    Savannah Rychcik September 11, 2020 0 Comments According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, Americans may not be able to return to the way things were before the coronavirus pandemic until the end of next year. Fauci told MSNBC it would be long before the majority of the population receives a coronavirus vaccine. “By the time you mobilize the distribution of the vaccinations, and you get the majority, or more, of the population, vaccinated and protected that’s likely not going to happen until the mid or end of 2021,” Fauci said. He continued, “If you’re talking about getting back to a degree of normality, which resembles where we were prior to COVID, it’s going to be well into 2021. Maybe...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin have a preference in the United States’ 2020 presidential election, and it isn’t former Vice President Joe Biden. Efforts by Russian operatives to interfere in this year’s election — just as they interfered in 2016’s presidential election — and help President Donald Trump win a second term have been well documented. Journalist Franklin Foer, this week in an article for The Atlantic, warns that the Kremlin will be relentless this time. “Events in the United States have unfolded more favorably than any operative in Moscow could have ever dreamed,” Foer explains. “Not only did Russia’s preferred candidate win (in 2016), but he has spent his first term fulfilling the potential it saw in...

    This should be a wake-up call: New data suggest that the United States is one of just a few countries worldwide that is slipping backward. The newest Social Progress Index, shared with me before its official release Thursday morning, finds that out of 163 countries assessed worldwide, the United States, Brazil and Hungary are the only ones in which people are worse off than when the index began in 2011. And the declines in Brazil and Hungary were smaller than America’s. “The data paint an alarming picture of the state of our nation, and we hope it will be a call to action,” Michael Porter, a Harvard Business School professor and the chair of the advisory panel for the Social...

And this band—Donald Trump and GOP officials—has done so on two fronts simultaneously. They have failed to respond effectively to a pair of immense threats: a pandemic that has claimed the lives of close to 200,000 Americans, and a foreign attack on the political foundation of the country. What exacerbates this double tragedy is...

Which is understandable — it did come from China.” She continued, “The thing really — I was sitting here, and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, the president of the United States not only blamed Bob Woodward but said if he thought it was so bad,...
