    Republicans are slamming Joe Biden after the presumptive Democratic nominee made a verbal gaffe during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania and said 120 million people had died from the novel coronavirus. “People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” Biden said Thursday. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.” As of Thursday, there have been more than 122,000 – not million -- coronavirus deaths in the United States, according to Johns Hopkins figures. While Biden appears to immediately catch himself after his gaffe -- the pool video of Biden’s...
  • Obama VA in 2015: “Become a Kung Flu Fighter! Get Your Flu Shot!”

    Well, this is embarrassing for the media and the Democrats. After being attacked as “racist” for using the jocular term “Kung flu” for the COVID-19 coronavirus, it turns out President Trump is not the first in government to use that term. The Obama administration used the term “Kung flu” in September 2015 for a Veterans Affairs campaign promoting flu shots. The flu shot campaign featured an image of a mask(!) wearing martial arts fighter in action.
  • VIDEO: Joe Biden Claimed to Be 20 Year-Old Grade Schooler Watching Bull Connor

    VIDEO During a fundraiser on Tuesday with Barack Obama, Joe Biden claimed he watched Bull Connor sic the dogs on demonstrators in Birmingham, Alabama when he was in grade school. Okay, that took place in April and May of 1963 when Biden was twenty years old. What happened Joe? Did you flunk about 8 grades in order to be such an old grade schooler. Also since Biden's family moved to Delaware in 1953, he could not have seen Bull Connor in action in Scranton, Pennsylvania as he claimed. Therefore, Joe's story about watching Bull sounds like... BULL.
  • FBI tracked down white woman who set cop cars alight by tracing custom t-shirt she wore at a Philadelphia demonstration to Etsy - which led them to her LinkedIn and Poshmark accounts

    A white woman believed to have set fire to two cop cars during protests in Philadelphia has been arrested after investigators traced her shirt to an Etsy page, ultimately leading to the woman's social media accounts. Lore-Elisabeth Blumenthal, 33, faces two counts of felony arson for her role in setting ablaze two Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) vehicles 'following peaceful protests' on May 30. FBI agents used Instagram posts of the burned cars, along with 500 photos from various photographers, to identify the wording on the woman's shirt: 'KEEP THE IMMIGRANTS, DEPORT THE RACISTS,' the FBI agent explained in his affidavit,...

  • Swiss authorities search for the person who left $191,000 of gold bars on a train

    Swiss police are looking for a forgetful individual who left something rather important on a train -- a package full of gold bars, worth more than $190,000. The parcel containing the gold bars was found in the carriage of a Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) train traveling from the northeastern Swiss town of St Gallen to Lucerne, a city in the center of the country, in October last year, authorities said. Despite "extensive investigations," the owner of the high-value package had not been tracked down, officials said in a statement published in the local government Lucerne Canton gazette.
  • ‘For them not to reach out is pure PRIVILEGE’: Lady Antebellum’s new ‘woke’ name already belongs to a black blues singer

    Guess what happens when you overreact to the mob and make a decision based completely on proving how much you CARE … you pick a new name for your band that appropriates the name of a black, blues singer who you didn’t bother to reach out to beforehand. Awkward and oopsie. Lady Antebellum is now “Lady A” — but so is a black blues singer who’s performed music under the name for 20 years. “For them to not even reach out is pure privilege,” says the woman with the original moniker — Rolling Stone

    A Minneapolis man is changing his story about the relationship between George Floyd and now-former police officer Derek Chauvin. After telling CBS Evening News that the two men "bumped heads" while working together at Maya Santamaria's club as security guards, their former colleague David Pinney walked back his claim on Wednesday. Pinney said he had misidentified Floyd and that the man he believed was Floyd was actually a different black man who worked at the bar. "There has been a mix up between George and another fellow co-worker," he wrote in an email sent to CBS News, a stunning reversal...

    Using satellite data, researchers believe an "anomaly" in the South Atlantic may have split in two, with the eastern section "developing vigorously." Earth's magnetic field is generated by movements within the planet's molten iron core. ...When the magnetic field is stronger, it blocks more radiation. When it is weaker, more radiation reaches the planet's surface. The magnetic field is constantly moving. It strengthens and weakens as part of normal fluctuations. According to the European Space Agency, the magnetic field has lost around 9 percent of its strength over the preceding two centuries. One section of the magnetic field has been...

    BERMAN: Asking for names [to be unmasked], nothing wrong with that. Unmasking in itself, nothing wrong with that. Leaking classified information — and by definition these phone calls were classified — that’s a problem, correct? CLAPPER: Absolutely, it is. BERMAN: And if anyone did leak the contents of these conversations with or without the name, that would be a problem, yes? CLAPPER: [connection ends] BERMAN: We’ve lost the shot. I wonder if we can at least get him on the phone to finish this. Let’s try to get Director Clapper back. All right, we’re gonna work on getting that shot...

    Brian May landed in the hospital this week, but not because of anything coronavirus-related. On Wednesday, the Queen guitarist and astrophysicist shared an Instagram from the hospital wearing a face mask revealing that he tore his butt muscles "to shreds" while gardening. "The Virus didn’t get me yet - thank God," May, 72, wrote in the caption. "I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening. So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself. Turns out I did a thorough job -...

    The obverse (heads) design features the familiar image of George Washington by John Flanagan, used on the quarter since 1932. It has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original. The reverse (tails) design depicts a Samoan fruit bat mother hanging in a tree with her pup. The image evokes the remarkable care and energy that this species puts into their offspring. The design is intended to promote awareness to the species’ threatened status due to habitat loss and commercial hunting. The National Park of American Samoa is the only park in the United States...

The American press felt no need to ask any follow-up questions.</p>

    Last remaining Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's website makes it easy for supporters to make their own photograph endorsing the former vice president, however, it also makes it easy for critics and internet hooligans to create memes mocking him. A page on the website has it so people can upload their own photos and download a graphic that reads, "I'm on Team Joe!" with the custom picture. As a result, many Twitter users decided to make their own versions that lampooned Biden. Twitter users mocked Biden's soft stance on China, the media's obvious bias for the candidate, and his many...

    A surprise company outing to an air base caused a 64-year-old French man so much stress that he flung himself from a fighter jet in midair, grabbing the ejector button in a panic and tumbling through the skies above France before landing in a field. The man had been surprised by fellow employees, who had organized a joyride in a Dassault Rafale B jet for him as a treat. Once the man arrived at the Saint-Dizier air base in northeastern France and realized what his co-workers had arranged, he began to feel extremely stressed, according to a fairly remarkable aviation...

    Black smoke has been seen billowing from China’s first assault carrier in Shanghai. The new Type-075 carrier, which is similar to the U.S. Navy’s America Class assault carriers, is designed to carry helicopters and hovercraft to support amphibious landings. The smoke was reported on Chinese social media platforms earlier today. Images suggest that the fire took hold within the hull of the ship, possibly in the expansive aircraft hanger. Smoke came out of the open aircraft lift near the front of the island superstructure. Smoke also came out of the rear hangar opening. For a time a massive cloud of...

    Anthony Fauci, a leading member of the Trump administration's coronavirus task force, said Thursday he thinks the U.S. death toll from the virus could be much lower than the 100,000 to 200,000 first estimated by the White House. Fauci said on NBC's "Today" show that given widespread mitigation efforts the death toll will likely be closer to 60,000 as the U.S. now has more data about the growth and spread of the virus throughout the country. "I believe we are going to see a downturn in that, and it looks more like the 60,000 [range] than the 100,000 to 200,000,"...

    A Berlin official, who accused the U.S. administration of “piracy” after 200,000 masks for the city police went missing, backtracked Saturday and said the masks were ordered from a German firm. In a statement distributed by the city mayor’s office and senate a day earlier, Andreas Geisel, Berlin’s senator for the interior, was quoted as saying a delivery of FFP2 masks only made it as far as Bangkok before it was “confiscated.” He had said the consignment was ordered from a U.S. firm and “we are currently assuming that this is related to the U.S. government’s ban on mask exports.”...
