    The State of Victoria's remaining COVID-19 restrictions won't be easing before October, as Premier Daniel Andrews extends the state's pandemic declaration. The move will enable the state government to implement COVID-19 related measures deemed necessary to protect public health. The orders will be effective until 11.59pm on Wednesday, October 12. In making the declaration, Andrews said there continued to be a "serious risk to public health" across the state from COVID-19. "I am satisfied on reasonable grounds that there continues to be a serious risk to public health throughout Victoria due to the coronavirus disease which requires continued public health...

    Fauci took an antiviral COVID treatment. During the June 23 briefing, Fauci confirmed that he had finished his five-day treatment of Paxlovid, an oral antiviral pill developed by Pfizer and authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). After completing a round of Paxlovid, Fauci tested negative for COVID three days in a row, Forbes reported. But a rapid antigen test displayed a positive result on day four, with Fauci indicating he was experiencing a "Paxlovid rebound" and a resurgence of COVID symptoms. "Over the next day or so, I started to feel really poorly, much worse than in the...

    International travellers will soon not be required to declare their COVID-19 vaccine status in a major move by the Albanese Government. The change to the Biosecurity Act – set to come in to force from 12:01am on July 6 – will see the new government drop all COVID-19 border restrictions put in place during the pandemic. Health Minister Mark Butler made the announcement on Sunday and said the removal of vaccine requirements for international travellers was based on the advice of Chief Medical Officer Professor Paul Kelly. While Australia’s vaccine mandates for will change, travellers will still be forced to...

    Boris Johnson is fighting for political survival after two of his top ministers attacked his leadership and resigned. Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid quit within 10 minutes of each other, followed by a flurry of junior ministers and aides. Critics said it was "over" for the prime minister, while Labour said the party he led was corrupted. But Mr Johnson made it clear he planned to stay on as he moved to shore up his government with a cabinet reshuffle. He named Nadhim Zahawi as the new chancellor, while the prime minister's chief of staff, Steve Barclay,...

    Britney Griner’s wife said it is “very disheartening” that she still has not heard directly from President Biden, even after the WNBA star — who’s been languishing in a Russian jail — sent a handwritten letter to the president, begging him to not “forget” her. Cherelle Griner appeared remotely on “CBS Mornings” on Tuesday, telling host Gayle King that she has decided to “not be quiet anymore” about her wife’s plight because the Biden administration so far has been unable to bring her home. “I will find that balance of … harm versus help in pushing our government to do...

    Arnold Skolnick, the artist best-known for creating the iconic poster for Woodstock, has died at the age of 85. Deadline, citing Skolnick’s son, Alexander, said the artist died June 15 due to respiratory failure. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Skolnick was reportedly just five years old when he began dreaming of becoming an artist. As an adult, he worked as a freelancer serving many of New York’s ad agencies. In 1969, he received a phone call from John Morris, the production coordinator of Woodstock. The festival had initially enlisted David Edward Byrd -- known for designing rock concert posters for the...

The statement also noted that tomorrow night's (July 6) show in Burgettstown, Pa. would be...

    Michael Moore has written his own woke Independence Day “declaration,” railing against Republicans and insisting he will give up the privileges of his US citizenship — but stopped short of detailing any specific freedoms he would forgo in his rambling rant. The 68-year-old “Sicko” moviemaker posted his “My Declaration” on July 4 in response to “being completely fed up with recent events that have upset my tranquility.” “I refuse to live in a country threatened by white supremacy — and I’m not leaving. So we‘ve got a problem,” he started his manifesto.

    A Rhode Island state senator raised eyebrows with a TikTok campaign clip of herself twerking while upside down in a very revealing bikini and saying: 'Vote Senator Mack.' Tiara Mack, 28, entered the Rhode Island legislature in January 2021 - the first black openly gay woman to do so, and set tongues wagging with her July 4 video, which was filmed on one of her adopted home state's famed beaches. The Democrat's video sparked a strong reaction, with 4,220 likes in the first 24 hours. She captured the clip: 'A promised senator thirst trap at Block Island.' Mack added a...

    The fast food restaurants that replaced McDonald’s in Russia after the American company left the country over the invasion of Ukraine have been serving up moldy hamburgers to their customers. Diners who patronized “Vkusno & Tochka,” translated from Russian as “tasty and that’s it,” posted photos of the rotted food on social media. The disturbing images show mold on hamburger buns. Other customers have reported finding insect legs in the meat patties, according to the Daily Mail.

    An aide to New York City Mayor Eric Adams told both Brooklyn muggers not to attack him because he works for City Hall, right before he was robbed and shoved into the ground. Christopher Bauch, 33, is a member of the mayor's advance team - which deals with event planning - and was scouting out a location for a mayoral appearance near Brooklyn Navy Yard at around 10.30am....

    An estimated 500 to 1,000 bacterial species reside in each person's gut, perhaps numbering 100,000 trillion microorganisms. Researchers used mouse models to explore how diet and feeding patterns affect these intestinal microbes—and the health of the hosts, particularly with obesity and type 2 diabetes. "It's important to realize that the gut microbiome is constantly changing, not only based on what we're eating, but also based on the time of day," said Amir Zarrinpar, MD, Ph.D. "And what we've learned is that cyclical changes in the gut microbiome are quite important for health since they help with the circadian clock, and...

    After Americans celebrated our nation’s Independence Day in Washington D.C. with American flags and fireworks, they were confronted with a creepy pro-abortion march that threatened to kill pro-life people. A combination of pro-abortion radicals and domestic terrorists from Antifa Constitution Avenue with the Fourth of July fireworks display underway on the National Mall. Dressed in all black and carrying umbrellas to hide their faces, they carried a threatening banner that read “corrupt court, killer cops, burn it down.” Journalist Alejandro Alvarez of local radio station WTOP reported on how things got tense between the pro-abortion extremists and police. “Police forced...

    HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra promised Sunday that the Biden administration is doing “whatever we can” to expand abortions, including researching the possibility of putting temporary abortion facilities on federal land. Speaking on NBC News “Meet the Press,” the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) leader reiterated the president’s promises to expand abortions in response to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. When host Chuck Todd asked about some Democrat lawmakers’ idea of opening temporary abortion facilities on federal land, Becerra acknowledged the possibility. “I think we’re continuing to explore everything that’s out there,” he said. “We...

    The Devil opposes abortion. The Lord supports abortion. That is the sick, twisted metaphor of MSNBC's Tiffany Cross. On her Cross Connection show Saturday morning, Cross condemned companies that on the one hand are offering to pay for their employees' travel to states where abortion is legal, but on the other hand, contribute to politicians who are pro-life. Complained Cross: "You can't dance with the Devil and the Lord at the same time." Cross singled out AT&T, citing an Insider article reporting that it is the largest contributor to pro-life politicians among companies also paying for their employees' abortion travel....

    The public outcry around the plight of Brittney Griner is growing louder — and that spells trouble for President Biden, who has been unable to free the basketball star from detention in Russia. Griner wrote to Biden in recent days saying she was “terrified I might be here forever”. Her wife, Cherelle, appears to have lost patience with the administration to take a low-profile approach to Brittney’s jailing. On Tuesday, Cherelle Griner told “CBS Mornings” that it was “very disheartening” not to have heard from Biden directly. Cherelle Griner added: “It kills me every time that, you know, when I...

    New York Times columnist Margaret Renkl may be based in Nashville, but she’s as contemptuous of Trumpers and Red Staters as any of the paper’s Manhattan-based writers, as shown in her latest self-important trashing of an American holiday: “The American Flag Belongs to Me, Too, and This Year I’m Taking It Back.” She reminisced how in her younger days, “We were all proud to be Americans, even if we didn’t agree about which aspects of our sprawling, messy democracy merited pride.” Not anymore though, with Old Glory now hijacked by the Red Staters, in all their irredeemable tackiness. Take a...

    Celebrities pretty much lost their minds when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and returned abortion policy to the states. Even that anti-cyberbullying activist Monica Lewinsky turned abusive on Twitter with the F-bombs. But Christian Toto at Hollywood in Toto noted late-night TBS "comedian" Samantha Bee took it one step further. She lobbied the American people to "raise hell" and disturb the peace for the justices, to never let Justice Alito eat in peace again. No one in the liberal media raised a question about whether this might incite violence -- after a man attempted to assassinate Justice Brett...

    A week after getting hammered with tough questions on ABC and CBS Sunday shows, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) faced another round with CNN State of the Union host Dana Bash. She was harassed to support an abortion for a raped 10-year-old girl in Ohio. Right after that, Bash interviewed Rep. Adam Kinzinger and told him her 11-year-old son would appreciate him calling Liz Cheney’s primary opponents “a bunch of armpit farters.” Bash is just that shameless. She began by peppering Noem with a barrage of questions insisting she support paid family leave and taxpayer-subsidized child care in South Dakota now...

    Clarence Thomas, like a modern-day George Wallace, standing in the Supreme Court doorway, declaring, "segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." As absurd as that scenario sounds, something like that could happen—if you believe Glenn Kirschner. The MSNBC legal analyst appeared on Jonathan Capehart's Sunday Show, with New York Times columnist Charles Blow serving as substitute host. Asked by Blow what the future of privacy rights is in a post-Roe world, Kirschner answered: "Oh, I think privacy rights will be all but abolished. Whether it is gay marriage, whether it's interracial marriage, which I think might qualify as irony for Justice...
