    EXCLUSIVE: U.S. Attorney John Durham is under pressure to wrap up his investigation into the origins of the Russia probe by the end of the summer, but if he doesn’t, he could wait to reveal his findings or initiate prosecutions until after the 2020 presidential election, Fox News has learned. Two sources familiar with Durham’s investigation told Fox News this week that Durham is working expeditiously to try to finish the probe by the end of summer, but that several lines of investigation are not yet complete.

    Lebanon County is the only county in Pennsylvania that is not being given approval from Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration to move to the green phase. The Wolf administration said Friday 12 more counties will move next week to the green phase, the least restrictive in the governor’s plan to reopen Pennsylvania amid the coronavirus pandemic. Those counties include Philadelphia and all of its suburbs. Earlier Friday, eight counties, including Dauphin, moved into the green phase. As of Friday, 54 counties are now in the green phase, with 12 more headed there next Friday. On June 26, Lebanon County will stand...

    Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Sunday encouraged people to wear a mask to stop the spread of the coronavirus — saying the face coverings don’t infringe on Americans’ “freedom” and will help to get the economy up and running. “Some feel face coverings infringe on their freedom of choice- but if more wear them, we’ll have MORE freedom to go out. Face coverings [leads to] less asymptomatic viral spread [leads to] more places open, and sooner!” Adams wrote on Twitter. “Exercise and promote your freedom by choosing to wear a face covering!” The surgeon general had originally said in February...

    Yesterday a video surfaced from George Floyd as he was pinned down by a cop and later died. It happened Monday night, when cops were responding to a “forgery in progress.” Police arrived and saw the suspect sitting in a car. According to the Department, the man resisted arrest so he was placed in handcuffs, adding “he appeared to be suffering medical distress.” This has caused tensions around the country and things are not looking good. The Minneapolis Police Department first requested an independent investigation by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and later contacted the FBI as well after...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The FBI has been called to investigate after a man died Monday night in south Minneapolis after an encounter with police. In a statement early Tuesday, police described what happened as a medical incident. However, a video posted on social media shows an officer kneeing a man’s neck to the ground for several minutes. Before he goes unconscious, the man, who is black, repeatedly tells officers he can’t breathe. At a press conference Tuesday morning, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey alluded to the graphic footage, saying: “I believe what I saw, and what I saw was wrong at...

    New coronavirus cases in Northeast Pennsylvania slackened Monday, but the state Department of Health cautioned against celebrating too soon. Figures released Monday show there were 32 new cases throughout Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties. In each county, there were fewer cases reported Monday than what they have averaged over the past two weeks. “It’s a very positive finding, but again, one day’s data is not as meaningful as trends in data, so we’re going to be watching that very carefully,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “And, of course, a trend in data with decreasing...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that no one in the state can be evicted for not paying rent due to the coronavirus until August 20. "New York State will extend the moratorium on evictions for those facing COVID-related hardship for an additional 60 days - until August 20," he tweeted. "The No. 1 issue that people talk to me about probably is rent, and fear about being able to pay their rent, and this just takes that issue off the table until August 20," he said at his daily coronavirus briefing. Cuomo also said officials will ban any...
  • Horowitz: Immigrants Have a Right to Welfare, but Citizens Have No Right to Liberty

    Today, I make a powerful juxtaposition of how the courts are creating rights for foreign nationals to travel here and access welfare and at the same time are ignoring the rights of Americans. Governors are now ordering interstate travel bans. I explain why this violates natural rights and why the courts consistently fail to protect real rights. Also, the latest math and science about the virus you won’t hear from the media.

    A Texas salon owner was given seven days in jail on Tuesday after she refused to apologize for defying coronavirus related restrictions by remaining open for business. Dallas business owner Shelley Luther was given a choice: She could offer an apology for selfishness, pay a fine and shutdown until Friday, or serve jail time. "I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I'm selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish," she told the judge. "I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids. So sir, if you think the law is...

    Dr. Deborah Birx said protesters who gather without wearing masks and not practicing social distancing at rallies against states’ lockdown regulations are “devastatingly worrisome” because they could spread the coronavirus to at-risk family members. Birx, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, was asked by host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” about crowds that gathered at Michigan’s state capitol from a “public health standpoint.” “It’s devastatingly worrisome to me personally because if they go home and, in fact, their grandmother or their grandfather who has a co-morbid condition and they have a serious or a very or...

    Today, I offer the full legal and scientific case against universal lockdowns and how they are actually making things worse on all fronts. First, you must know your rights. Second, know the basic science and concrete data we have from months of observing the virus. Why do pro-lockdown politicians and the media hate our seniors? In fact, it is those people who are ensuring more vulnerable people die by preventing herd immunity among the healthy and by draining needed medical resources.

    New COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania have stabilized, but the statewide stay-at-home order will remain in place through May 8, Gov. Tom Wolf announced Monday afternoon. The order originally was set to expire April 30. Additionally, curbside pickup is now available at 176 state liquor sales – a move that will help state officials determine whether curbside pickup can be expanded safely to other businesses currently closed by the pandemic. Wolf said several coronavirus-related restrictions will be relaxed next month. Online car sales and some limited construction will be permitted beginning May 8. He called them the first "small steps" toward...

    The Baltimore City Council pressed the mayor Monday to require all residents to wear a face covering when they go out in public to help limit the spread of the coronavirus. The council unanimously passed a resolution calling for Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young to issue an executive order mandating everyone in the city wear either a mask or another kind of facial covering when they leave their homes. Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks recently signed an order requiring everyone shopping in county grocery stores or other large shops to wear masks. The measure also applies to riders on...
