  • The Justice Department, Department of Health and Human Services, and the Federal Trade Commission Partner to Alert Public of Contact Tracing COVID-19 Fraud Schemes

    In continued effort to fight fraud connected to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Federal Trade Commission are partnering to alert the public of emerging threats to steal money and sensitive information through contact tracing scams. Contact tracing is a process underway to identify people who have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, instruct them to quarantine, and monitor their symptoms. Contact tracing scams often appear in the form of text messages or telephone calls seeking money, or Social Security, bank account, or credit card...

    In an interview with Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep, Attorney General William Barr denied that the Justice Department is continually upholding the interest of the president, dismissed concerns about the firing of federal prosecutor Geoffrey Berman and said he does not believe an election conducted mainly by mail can be secure. Steve Inskeep: Thank you again for taking the time. I'm appreciative to have this opportunity. Attorney General William Barr: Thank you. I want to note that in the last few days, there have been three acts of yours that have made the news, sometimes not for the first time. The...

    (CNN)A half dozen new swing-state polls released Thursday morning suggest that not only would President Donald Trump lose if the election were held today, he would lose in a landslide. The surveys, conducted by The New York Times and Siena College, show Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by double digits in Michigan (Biden +11), Wisconsin (Biden +11) and Pennsylvania (Biden+ 10) and by mid-single digits in North Carolina (Biden +9), Arizona (Biden +7) and Florida (Biden +6). Trump won every one of those states in the 2016 election. Switch them from red to blue and you can quickly...

    This nation has never been perfect and even embraced the atrocity of slavery, but it has continued to improve, sometimes dramatically, throughout our history, and has continued to sacrifice like no other nation to liberate others in the world. Now, however, there are those who want to destroy the only form of government that allows the kind of self-improvement we have made. Many have peacefully protested for good reason, but those who have taken the injustice sparks and fanned them into the burning our country need to answer for their crimes. There are those who had organized, raised money from...

    Bill Barr Tears the Seamless Garment Executing child murderers does not make Bill Barr any less pro-life. Catholics, says Attorney General William Barr, “understand that only by transforming ourselves can we transform the world beyond ourselves.”Saccharine? Perhaps. But this remark from Barr’s now-infamous Notre Dame speech summarizes the faith of a man whose public Catholicism has for decades emphasized both sexual morality and personal charity. Discipline and virtue — words that read like dog whistles to modernists and other subversives in the Catholic hierarchy — are central to Barr’s faith. To Barr, Christ’s “yoke is easy” precisely because “taking...

    Attorney General Bill Barr during a Fox News interview with Maria Bartiromo said that there soon may be "developments" in Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham's investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. "In terms of the future of Durham's investigation, you know he's pressing ahead as hard as he can, and I expect that we will have some developments hopefully before the end of the summer," Barr said in the interview today. Durham's investigation has slowed as a consequence of the coronavirus crisis, the attorney general said. When Bartiromo asked about a grand jury, Barr declined to divulge whether...

    ... Before we get into the idea of fighting back, let's look at the battle lines. On the one side, we have a loose collection of freedom-lovers, conservatives, traditionalists, free-marketers, and rational and logical people (let's call them Republicans, if for no other reason than that we need a shorthand label). On the other side, there is a tightly knitted confederacy of Marxists, communists, socialists, relativists, hive-minders, grievance-mongers, Stockholm syndrome sufferers, and criminal cabals (let's call this group Democrats). There is still a large portion of "independents," but even that is becoming irrelevant when we review the fortresses each side...
  • John Bolton's bombshell book will say Donald Trump offered to halt criminal probes as 'personal favors to dictators he liked' and begged China's president Xi to help him win the 2020 election

    John Bolton's bombshell memoir contains new instances of alleged misconduct by President Trump – including agreeing to back off criminal probes as 'personal favors' to certain dictators. The book also contains a claim that Trump pleaded with Chinese President Xi Jinping to boost U.S. food purchases, describing it in terms of his own election. Trump regularly touts a deal to pause the China trade war as one of his chief accomplishments. A new book excerpt obtained by the New York Times contains the claim about the criminal probes. Bolton writes that in cases involving China and Turkey, Trump was willing...

    Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell says he's "OK" with renaming military bases that are named after Confederate Army officers, declining to side with President Donald Trump and other Republicans opposed to the move. The Kentucky senator said he'll live with whatever lawmakers decide as they debate an annual defence policy bill for the military in the coming weeks. Trump has blasted the calls to rename the military bases. "Hopefully our great Republican Senators won't fall for this!" he said in a tweet last week.

    MOBILE, Alabama — Buzz is swirling that President Donald Trump will return to the same venue where he made his first splash in the political world nearly five years ago with a political rally, but this time supporting the political opponent of his first major ally, former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Multiple sources have told Breitbart News on background Trump will appear in Mobile, AL’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium to campaign on behalf of former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, Sessions’ opponent in a July 14 primary runoff election. The winner of that contest will face incumbent U.S. Sen....

    Washington — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that it is illegal for an employer to fire someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, delivering a major victory in the fight for civil rights for LGBT people. The court's 6-3 ruling extends the scope of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which bars discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin and religion, to include LGBT people. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Neil Gorsuch, who authored the majority's opinion, joined the liberal wing of the bench in ruling that "an employer who fires an...

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that existing federal law forbids job discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, a major victory for advocates of gay rights — and a surprising one from an increasingly conservative court. The decision said Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to discriminate because of a person's sex, among other factors, also covers sexual orientation. It upheld rulings from lower courts that said sexual orientation discrimination was a form of sex discrimination. Across the nation, 21 states have their own laws prohibiting job discrimination based on...

    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:

    After Attorney General William Barr told Fox News last week "some" of the people his handpicked federal prosecutor is scrutinizing would be familiar to the public, Gowdy surmised Strzok was one of them. "Keep in mind. Peter Strzok, that I think is now a household name, has his fingerprints on every aspect of this," Gowdy said on Fox News on Wednesday. Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor who served as a Republican congressman from South Carolina, mapped out Strzok's integral role throughout investigations underlying the 2016 election.
