    Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports. The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases – around 282,000 – have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths – or 54,000 deaths – have come from the same, the New York Times reported. The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The...

    Following accusations of widespread fraud, voter intimidation, and ballot theft in the May 12 municipal elections in Paterson, N.J., state Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal (pictured) announced Thursday he is charging four men with voter fraud – including the vice president of the City Council and a candidate for that body. With races still undecided, control of the council hangs in the balance. Paterson is New Jersey’s third largest city and the election will decide the fate of a municipal budget in excess of $300 million, in addition to hundreds of millions more in education spending and state aid. In...

    If accepted at the time, the design would have likely revolutionized architecture. ======================================================================== In the early 1500s, Leonardo da Vinci designed a hypothetical bridge for the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.

  • Twitter’s Brazen 2020 Election Interference Will Eventually End In Banning Trump

    TwitterÂ’s policies about misleading tweets and abusive behavior are deeply cynical and designed merely to censor speech Jack Dorsey doesnÂ’t like. It seems clear now that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is going to ban President Donald Trump. ItÂ’s just a matter of when.Dorsey will come up with a pretext, however absurd or cynical, as part of TwitterÂ’s ongoing efforts to interfere in the 2020 election. It will probably consist of a charge that Trump has had one too many violations of some entirely subjective and impossible-to-define Twitter policy on abusive or harmful speech.We got another preview of what that might...

    Mayor Ras J. Baraka today said he will ask the Newark City Council to approve an ordinance that will denounce hate crimes and racism, police brutality and declare white supremacy groups as terrorists in the City of Newark. “We are long overdue on a measure such as this,” Baraka said. “For this country to heal, we must begin to legally challenge the insidious and dehumanizing tenets of white supremacy, once and for all. We must stand up forcefully against racism and have the courage to take on the legal challenges an ordinance such as this will attract.” Newark Corporation Counsel...

    The mayor of New Jersey’s largest city on Thursday labeled ongoing efforts to defund or abolish police departments a “bourgeois liberal” solution for addressing systemic problems that extend far beyond city police departments. “I think it’s kind of a knee-jerk reaction,” said Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, a progressive Democrat, during a telephone press conference. “I think there needs to be significant reforms … [but] to get rid of the police department — who would respond to calls for service for violence and domestic abuse?” […] Baraka’s comments on Thursday came as he touted an ordinance passed by the City Council...

    Newark, N.J. ‘To all the jackasses out there who we now have to carry—get with the program,” Gov. Phil Murphy fulminated on Twitter April 6. “We know who you are and we will not relent until we have 100% compliance.” On May 2 he added: “ATTN KNUCKLEHEADS: KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE #FlattenTheCurve.” But New Jersey relented on Saturday as thousands massed in the streets of Newark, the state’s most populous city. While many protesters did avail themselves of masks, standing 6 feet apart—as per the state’s oft-repeated guidelines—was impossible. Mr. Murphy’s prohibition on “outdoor gatherings” was still in effect, although...

    The Democratic Party’s veepstakes may have narrowed down to two top contenders. Out of all the potential running mates thought to be on Joe Biden’s shortlist, only two — California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — spoke at the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention, which ended Saturday. “These things don’t happen by accident,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Post. “I think those two are getting an audition in Texas.”

    VIDEO Just as the Jacobins of the French Revolution ended up eating their own including Danton and Robespierre, we are now seeing the Jacobin Left in America doing the same. The latest example was when the the squishy liberal mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, was just denounced and booed because he would not agree to defunding the police department which, of course, would mean its abolition. So the question has to be asked, how long before the Jacobin Left demand the removal of the author of the 1994 crime bill, Joe Biden, from the Democrat ticket? If Frey is...

    An NFL player from New Jersey was repeatedly harassed and groped by a drug-addled female passenger aboard a United Airlines flight, according to a new lawsuit that claims the crew did nothing to stop the very inappropriate use of hands. The unnamed athlete, John Doe 1, said his ordeal began shortly after the red-eye flight departed Los Angeles for Newark Liberty International Airport on Feb. 10.

    Democrat Cory Booker sounds a lot different in the way he is treating allegations against Joe Biden vs how he sounded during the time Brett Kavanaugh went through something similar. Cory Booker was very vocal against Brett Kavanaugh, but not so much against Joe Biden. Is that because they are both Democrats?

    Intensifying its enforcement in so-called sanctuary cities across the country, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has begun 24-hour-a-day surveillance operations around the homes and workplaces of undocumented immigrants. The agency plans to deploy hundreds of additional officers in unmarked cars in the coming weeks to increase arrests in cities where local law enforcement agencies do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement. ICE leadership has requested at least 500 special agents who normally conduct long-term investigations into dangerous criminals and traffickers to join the enhanced arrest campaign rolling out in sanctuary cities, according to an internal email reviewed by The New York...

    Go back and listen to Cory Booker’s stump speeches over the years, and, as in those of any politician, you’ll hear many of the same stories. But Booker’s are more dramatic and heart-rending than most. They draw heavily on his experiences in Newark, N.J., where he moved in 1995 after his second year at Yale Law School. They have also helped to make him a political celebrity and put millions of dollars into his campaign war chest and Newark’s coffers. Booker’s tales of his trials and travails on the streets of Newark, the city that twice elected him mayor, are...

    Actress Rosario Dawson is adding intrigue to rumors about her sexuality. In an interview with Bustle, the star of “Briarpatch” clarified a 2018 Instagram post in which she paid homage to the LGBTQ community during Pride month. Many fans read between the lines and assumed that the social-media update was, in effect, her coming out. Dawson — who has been in a relationship with Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) since, she said, October 2018 — told the women’s website, “People kept saying that I [came out] . . . I didn’t do that. I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come...

    Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Sunday on MSNBC that the 2020 presidential hopefuls who are white had “blemishes on their record about their relationships with black people.” When asked about 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg, Waters said, “You know, one’s record will speak for itself. If there are facts about what he has done or what he has not done, then he’s going to have to try and make people, you know, believe that he understands where he made mistakes and promises to do better and be able to articulate how he’s going to do even better than he’s done in...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is considering backing former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential primary, The New York Times reported Thursday. Multiple Democratic officials familiar with the California senator’s deliberations told the Times she’s weighing the option of backing her former primary opponent. The officials told the Times the potential endorsement would not be likely until after the Senate impeachment trial that kicked off this week. Harris’s spokesman Chris Harris told the Times the senator “remains focused on the ongoing impeachment trial.” “No decisions have been made about whether she will endorse, which candidate, nor when an endorsement...
