    Ali Shaigan The Associated Press is reporting that a huge explosion occurred on Friday that rattled Tehran and lit up the horizon. The site of the blast was a region where many nuclear experts believe Iran conducted high-explosive tests relating to its nuclear program. The explosion happened in the Alborz mountains, just east of the city. Satellite photos show the massive extent of the blast. This Sentinel-2 GIF shows the difference at Khojir Missile Base in 🇮🇷#Iran (35.687799 N, 51.651720 E) because of the recent explosion: it looks like fire burnt down 20 ha of land WNW of a now...
  • Tim Scott: Pelosi Claiming GOP Tried Getting Away with Floyd’s Murder was ‘Most Outrageous, Sinful Comment’

    That, of course, was blocked and filibustered by the Democrats. They didn’t want to talk about it. Debated, amended. She said that you and your Republican colleagues supporting the Justice Act were basically complicit in the murder of George Floyds, saying that you were trying to get away with his murder. As someone who’s worked very hard on this issue as a black man. What was your reaction when you heard that from Speaker Pelosi? SEN. TIM. SCOTT: It was the most outrageous, sinful comment I’ve heard as a public official period. I thought to myself that how in the...

  • U.S. appeals court orders dismissal of criminal case against Michael Flynn

    A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday directed a federal judge to drop the criminal case against President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn as demanded by the Justice Department, preventing a judicial review of the propriety of the request. In a split decision, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in favor of Flynn and the Trump administration in preventing U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan from exercising his discretion on whether to grant the department’s motion to clear Flynn, who twice pleaded guilty.
  • 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...

    With some states claiming testing is short supply, and hospitals attributing COVID-19 deaths through different methodologies, many analysts are looking to the blunter measure of total deaths. We compared total death from all states for the entire months of March & April (May data is still incomplete). By comparing total death for March & April of this year with those from the same period in past years, a rough measure of the pandemic’s impact emerges. The data from this analysis support the idea that Red states (Conservative ideology) are faring better than Blue states (Liberal ideology). COVID-19 numbers are not...

    It is not just fireworks, but Christmas lights and a host of other things we can do better here than they do over there. That said, with a proud history of observing July 4th by way of booms, bangs, and bright lights celebrating independence from King George, I am hesitant to make use of products sold by Communist China this year. Why was I not in years past? Black Cat. M-80. Silver Salute. Lady Fingers. Zebra. Dixie Boy. Here is the thing: We should develop a fireworks industry that puts Communist China to shame. Not that our military does not...

    New York state in Mid-April decided to add “presumed” COVID-19 cases to its death toll, which put the state’s total at around 10,000 victims. < Another 3,700 new deaths were added to the revised death count, according to a report from The New York Times. But New York was not alone. Michigan also announced in April that they were adding another 65 “presumed” cases to their total coronavirus tally. In late April the Wolf administration in Pennsylvania was caught adding up to 269 fake deaths to the state totals on Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Democrat governor he got caught. This...

    Early Tuesday morning, President Trump continued to signal that it is his intention to re-open the U.S. economy and get Americans back to work sooner rather than later. Repeating yesterday’s theme that the government can’t afford to implement a draconian “cure” that is worse than the China Virus, the President issued the following tweet: Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Our people want to return to work. They will practice Social Distancing and all else, and Seniors will be watched over protectively & lovingly. We can do two things together. THE CURE CANNOT BE WORSE (by far) THAN THE PROBLEM! Congress...
