    The health “experts” and the media propagating viral panic porn think people like us don’t understand arithmetic. They think they can manipulate headline stories warning of increased cases of COVID-19 in order to push more lockdowns, ignoring all the ways that more cases are being discovered, while the percentage of positive tests, new hospitalizations and deaths, and the lethality of the virus are all waning significantly. “Arizona’s COVID-19 spread is ‘alarming’ and action is needed, experts warn,” read the title of an Arizona Republic article..... ...As is always the case, there is a grain of truth that is hugely distorted...

    SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best says officers will go into the several-block area being occupied by protesters if there are threats to public safety. Police pulled back from a part of the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood after recent clashes with people protesting the Minneapolis death of George Floyd near the department’s East Precinct. A festival-like atmosphere has emerged in the area, now called the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest,” with participants painting a Black Lives Matter mural on the street and planting a community garden. Best spoke after a business owner near the protest area complained that police...

    U.S. retail sales surged the most on record last month, the Commerce Department said Tuesday, as millions of Americans returned to work following weeks of coronavirus-triggered lockdowns that shuttered the world's largest economy. Retail sales rose 17.7% in May, the Commerce Department said, well ahead of the 8% forecast and well ahead of the downwardly-revised April reading of -14.7%. The so-called retail control reading, which strips out volatile auto, gas, building material and food services sales, was marked 11% higher in May, more than double the Street consensus forecast. The gains mimic those seen in last month's payroll report, which...

    The following is a full transcript of the Oral Arguments held by the DC Circuit Appellate Court in reference to a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus by General Michael T. Flynn, supported by the Department of Justice, to stop the now innecesary proceedings in the District Court. A decision from the three-Judge panel will be forthcoming. The arguments were held by teleconference due to restrictions imposed by COVID-19 measures rendering an appearance in court impossible. This is NOT an official document, but the author's rendition of the recording of the teleconference:

    Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Saturday that police Chief Erika Shields is stepping aside and the city will launch a search for her replacement. Bottoms said Shields offered her resignation, which the mayor accepted. Bottoms also called for the termination of the police officer who shot Rayshard Brooks on Friday. "I do not believe this was a justified use of deadly force and have called for the immediate termination of the officer," the mayor said, at a Saturday afternoon news conference.

    Elizabeth Warren is among the top three choices for Joe Biden's running mate, according to his selection committee. Aides to Biden, the two-term vice president and now the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, are seriously considering the Massachusetts senator and former White House hopeful, the Associated Press reported Friday. Warren's name has floated to the top of the short list, along with California Sen. Kamala Harris and Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice, as his vetting team enters the process's second stage. Pundits believe Warren could energize more liberal Democrats compared to Biden, but she's a septuagenarian like him and...

    The Hill ^ | June 12, 2020 | John Kruzel
    A divided federal appeals court on Friday seemed reluctant to order the judge presiding over former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s prosecution to dismiss the case ahead of scheduled arguments in the trial court next month. During a Friday hearing before a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, two judges expressed reservations about preventing U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan from ruling on the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) motion to dismiss Flynn’s criminal case. Sullivan drew attention last month when he took the unusual step of appointing a retired federal judge to argue against dropping the charges and...
  • Warren Amendment Calls For The Destruction Of Confederate Monuments In Graveyards

    The Warren Amendment didn't just call changing the names of military bases. It called for the destruction of Confederate monuments inside military graveyards including Arlington Cemetery. During the voice vote, only Sens. Hawley and Cotton voiced opposition to the destruction of anything inside graveyards. Other Republicans on the committee were completely silent. Senate Republicans are now scrambling, believing Trump will veto the defense bill if it includes the Warren Amendment. The amendment was passed with a voice vote, so there's no record on how any individual senator voted. I was told, "this isn't the hill to die on"... I can't...

    JUST IN: More good news on the U.S. comeback Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany just shared some terrific news about our nationÂ’s fight to slow the spread of Coronavirus. According to Dr. Birx, a new study suggests that the United States prevented more than 3 million Coronavirus deaths thanks to aggressive mitigation efforts by President Trump and other officials. Those efforts include early travel restrictions with China, national public health guidelines, rapid testing and ventilator production, and more. Another study found that these national shutdown efforts prevented 50 million additional U.S. COVID-19 cases, as well. Thanks to the selfless patriotism of...

    "A longtime peace activist" is how every major news agency described Martin Gugino, a 75-year-old professional protester hospitalized after falling backward from being pushed by two Buffalo police officers. President Trump called him something else: an "ANTIFA provocateur" and asked whether the incident was "a setup." Everyone pounced on Trump for going after "an old man," including The Drudge Report.  But what if President Trump was right? According to a trusted source, Gugino told the officers, "you're going to arrest me, and I'm going to take you to the Supreme Court" before the push and fall incident with the two Buffalo...

    WASHINGTON — A retired judge on Wednesday urged a federal court not to allow the Justice Department to dismiss its criminal case against President Donald Trump's former adviser Michael Flynn, citing evidence of a "gross abuse of prosecutorial power." The U.S. district judge hearing the case, Emmet Sullivan, last month tapped John Gleeson to serve as a "friend of the court," after the Justice Department abruptly asked the court to dismiss the criminal charge against Flynn, a former national security adviser. The stunning move by the Justice Department followed a pressure campaign by Trump and his conservative allies and came...

    Numerous leftists are claiming that unnamed racists affiliated with the “far right” are responsible for much of the rioting that has taken place in cities across the United States since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. For example, Peggy Flanagan, the Democratic lieutenant governor of Minnesota, has accused such “white supremacists” of “burning down the institutions that are core to our identity and who we are” – and of thereby making it more difficult for people of good will “to come together … and mourn and grieve and demand change and justice in policing and every other racist...

    The Pentagon has told National Guardsmen deployed to the nation’s capital not to use firearms or ammunition, and has issued orders to send home active-duty troops that the Trump administration amassed outside the city in recent days, a sign of de-escalation in the federal response to protests in the city. Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper made the decision to disarm the guard without consulting the White House, after President Trump ordered a militarized show of force on the streets of Washington to quell demonstrations that were punctured by an episode of looting Sunday, two senior administration officials said. Trump had...

    Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey (D.) on Tuesday refused to denounce the violent riots occurring nationwide, likening them to the purifying effects of a forest fire. "Yes, America is burning, but that's how forests grow," Healey said in a speech delivered to the Boston Chamber of Commerce. Healey, who is also the co-chair of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, repeated her remarks in a tweet later the same day, adding that Americans need to "seize the opportunity" to rid the country of "institutionalized racism," which she blamed for the violence.

    During a briefing Wednesday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained to reporters, specifically CNN's Jim Acosta, that the police and other law enforcement officers have the right to defend themselves. Her comments came after the Trump administration was accused of having "peaceful protestors" tear gassed and physically removed from Lafayette Park on Monday evening. "No tear gas was used and no rubber bullets were used," McEnany explained. "No-one was tear gassed, let me make that clear. That's been confirmed by DOD and Park Services as well." "Let me go back and address what happened, there has been a...
