  • Misleading Virus Video, Pushed by the Trumps, Spreads Online (New York Times)

    The New York Times ^ | July 28, 2020 | Sheera Frankel
    In a video posted Monday online, a group of people calling themselves “America’s Frontline Doctors” and wearing white medical coats spoke against the backdrop of the Supreme Court in Washington, sharing misleading claims about the virus, including that hydroxychloroquine was an effective coronavirus treatment and that masks did not slow the spread of the virus. The video did not appear to be anything special. But within six hours, President Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. had tweeted versions of it, and the right-wing news site Breitbart had shared it. It went viral, shared largely through Facebook groups dedicated to...

    DENVER7 ABC ^ | Posted at 2:36 PM, Jul 28, 2020 and last updated 4:36 PM, Jul 28, 2020 | WCPO Staff
    As Florida and other southern states continue to report record numbers of coronavirus cases, Dr. Anthony Fauci said his concern has shifted to states in the Midwest. He called out Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee specifically, saying they are showing an “early indication” that cases of COVID-19 are going up. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said those states should carefully follow guidelines as they open back up during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday. Some states like Florida, Texas, Arizona and California had a major surge in coronavirus cases, he...

    Attorney General William Barr says law enforcement officers were already moving to push back protesters from a park in front of the White House when he arrived there Monday evening, and he says he did not give a command to disperse the crowd, though he supported the decision. Barr’s comments in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday were his most detailed explanation yet of what unfolded outside the White House earlier this week. They come after the White House and others said repeatedly that the attorney general ordered officers to clear the park. Shortly after officers aggressively pushed...

    White House coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Friday morning that the current state of crisis in the US would last for two months and that 'it's all on the table' in terms of how much more severe things may become. In a series of interviews with Good Morning America and CBS This Morning, Fauci gave his bleak assessment of what is still to come. 'It's certainly going to get worse before it gets better...there's no doubt we have not peaked yet,' he said. Asked directly if America was heading towards a complete shutdown like China and Italy, he...

    WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to a public allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to a college classmate, the judge and his team were communicating behind the scenes with friends to refute the claim, according to text messages obtained by NBC News. Kerry Berchem, who was at Yale with both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Deborah Ramirez, has tried to get those messages to the FBI for its newly reopened investigation into the matter but says she has yet to be contacted by the bureau. The texts between Berchem and Karen Yarasavage, both friends of Kavanaugh,...

    Trump blasts immigration ruling made by SCOTUS pick Neil Gorsuch BY Chris Sommerfeld NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 6:11 PM President Trump took a veiled shot at his own Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, on Tuesday, claiming that a ruling he made on immigration law perpetuates "a public safety crisis." The Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling — an unusual alignment in which Gorsuch sided with the four liberal justices for the first time — concerns a catchall provision of immigration law that defines what makes a crime violent. Gorsuch and the four liberal justices found that...

    A California judge said Friday he'll write the official ballot description for an initiative that would repeal a recent gas tax increase after he ruled that the title and summary written by Democratic Attorney General Xavier Becerra was misleading. Sacramento County Judge Timothy Frawley said Becerra's description would confuse voters because it focuses on the loss of transportation funding rather than the repeal of taxes. He sided with Republican Assemblyman Travis Allen of Huntington Beach, a candidate for governor, who is promoting the gas tax repeal initiative and filed a lawsuit challenging Becerra's ballot title and summary.

    The Washington Post’s shiny new story about the possibility of Donald Trump having mislead the American people by stage-managing the whole response to the “Russian Lawyer” meeting of Don Jr. is as inventive a piece of fiction as they can legally get away with. The use of “Anonymous sources” YET AGAIN, is becoming ludicrous. It lacks evidence, and in fact is easier to poke holes in then a pair of fishnet stockings. The “Scandal” comes from the assertion that when news broke of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a “Russian Lawyer, the President himself stepped in and stage-managed the whole...

    Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz has struck a nerve. The pastor took to Facebook Sunday to explain why his church — made up of Hillsong’s NYC campuses — will not be using the phrase “all lives matter.” Instead, Lentz wrote, his church will be saying “black lives matter.” The pastor wrote: At THIS church, we are not saying ‘all lives matter’ right now because this is a logical assumption that most reasonable people agree with. All lives are not at risk right now. We ARE saying BLACK LIVES MATTER. Because, right now, black lives apparently are worth LESS on our...

    Opponents of the Iranian nuclear deal blasted the Obama administration on Thursday for misleading the American public, the Jewish Insider reported. The condemnations came after reports emerged that Iran was secretly allowed to evade certain restrictions in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) so that it could begin receiving sanctions relief. According to the report, released by the DC-based Institute for Science and International Security and revealed by Reuters, a P5+1 joint commission formed to oversee implementation of the accord gave Iran some exemptions so that its nuclear facilities would be in compliance with the deal by January 16,...

    Mitt Romney said Friday he will not make an 11th-hour presidential run to try to stop Donald Trump from winning the Republican nomination, the day after sharply attacking the real estate mogul's candidacy. "I won't run for president," Romney told host Matt Lauer on NBC's "Today" show. Lauer asked the 2012 GOP presidential nominee three times about his 2016 ambitions, pressing for an "unambiguous" response after Romney appeared to leave the door to a bid slightly open.

    Donald Trump is fond of saying that he was the first to talk about a border wall or fence, but back in 2013 when Ted Cruz was pushing an amendment to create it, Donald Trump was actually meeting with a bunch of illegal alien activists to boast about the many illegal aliens who work at his resorts. ...at his New York penthouse office atop Trump Tower, he convened a meeting. Trump ushered in a pair of men - one to talk about the awards and a Democratic strategist who works with nonprofits - and three young DREAMer activists. The DREAMers...

    Ted Cruz said a New York Times report claiming that he criticized Donald Trump is "misleading." The Texas senator's presidential campaign eagerly pushed back against the suggestion that Cruz spoke ill of The Donald at a private fundraiser in New York City. A Times report citing two anonymous sources at a Madison Avenue luncheon with Cruz said the senator questioned Trump's "judgment." In response, the Cruz campaign sent out a statement blasting the story. "In the course of a presidential election, the voters are going to make a decision about every candidate," Cruz said. "And ultimately the decision is, who...

    Many Americans like the idea of the preliminary deal that would limit Iran's nuclear program but very few people really believe Tehran will follow through with the agreement. An Associated Press-GfK poll finds that just 3 percent said they were very confident that Iran would allow inspections of its nuclear facilities, remove plutonium from the country and shut down close to half of its uranium-enriching centrifuges as the preliminary deal says would be required. Nearly seven in 10 people said they were not confident, while 25 percent said they were only moderately confident. ..... < snip > ..... Although more...
