    Mr. Gates, 64, the Microsoft co-founder, has now become the star of an explosion of conspiracy theories about the coronavirus outbreak. In posts on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, he is being portrayed as the creator of Covid-19, as a profiteer from a virus vaccine, and as part of a dastardly plot to use the illness to cull or surveil the global population. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged millions of dollars to companies developing potential novel coronavirus vaccines. In an interview on April 9 on CNBC, Gates spoke theoretically about how many people might experience side effects from...

    A federal appeals court on Thursday ordered the judge handling the criminal case of President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, to respond to a request by Flynn’s lawyers to dismiss the case. The order came two days after Flynn’s lawyers asked the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to drop the case and assign any future court proceedings to another judge. The Department of Justice two weeks earlier made the surprise move to abandon its own prosecution of Flynn, who had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with then-Russian...

    Just asking. Since the U.S. has so many enemies who side with the Chicoms over us we just need to point out what it got them. Just look at Iran and Pakistan. Will they see the light. I just don't see much world wide condemnation out there.

    Leaders in Orange County’s Vietnamese American community said Friday they were “surprised and disappointed” with California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who a day earlier pointed to a nail salon as the first site of community spread of the coronavirus. It wasn’t so much what he said, but how he said it. “This whole thing started in the state of California, the first community spread, in a nail salon,” Newsom said during his news briefing Thursday in answer to a question from a reporter. “I’m very worried about that.” But the governor’s words also worry people involved in the predominantly Vietnamese American...

    A conservative watchdog group filed three complaints against organizations founded and operated by Media Matters founder David Brock. The Patriots Foundation accused Brock’s nonprofit group American Bridge Foundation of violating IRS rules by transferring $2.7 million in tax-exempt assets to a for-profit media company owned by Brock. “We’re calling on the IRS to conduct a thorough investigation of Brock’s organizations and to hold them accountable for all violations,” Patriots Foundation president Craig Robinson said in a statement. Media Matters for America founder David Brock reaped illegal profits through the transfer of millions from a nonprofit he founded to a for-profit...

    Far-left actor Alec Baldwin smeared millions of Americans, declaring that anyone intending to vote for President Donald Trump in this year’s presidential election must suffer from a mental illness.The Saturday Night Live star claimed that President Trump had gained unprecedented control over government institutions and therefore people must be crazy to vote for him.“Trump has reached for, and nearly gained, a control of the federal [government] unrivaled by other Presidents,” Baldwin said. “He fired huge numbers of [government] professionals. He steamrolled the Congress, whenever possible. And now this. If you vote for Trump again, you are mentally ill.”It is not the first...

    62 percent of New Hampshire Democrats would prefer that the Earth is struck by a giant meteor, that wipes out the entire human race, rather than see President Donald Trump win reelection in November, a shocking new poll has revealed. The new poll was conducted by the University of Massachusetts and shows that only 38 percent of Democratic voters say they would prefer a Trump victory if it meant saving all human life from being "extinguished."

Donald Trump wins re-election or A giant meteor strikes the earth, extinguishing all human life." Sixty-two percent of Democrats picked the meteor, while 38 percent chose a second term for Trump.

    A good majority of New Hampshire Democrats are feeling existential right about now. According to a poll from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, 64 percent of Democratic voters would rather see "a giant meteor strike the Earth, extinguishing all human life" than President Trump re-elected. The poll, conducted Jan. 28–31, also shows about half of Independent voters would say the same extreme thing. How New Hampshire voters feel about the death of humanity does coincide with how well they're materially doing on this planet. While 69 percent of respondents making under $50,000 a year say they'd be cool with...

    Women favor global death far more strongly than men. He’s been in the 2020 Democratic race for president from the start. Now the Sweet Meteor O’Death is finding a receptive audience: New Hampshire Democrats. The University of Massachusetts-Lowell Center for Public Opinion surveyed Democratic primary voters at the end of January and found nearly two-thirds would rather a meteor hit the earth, “extinguishing all human life,” than President Trump win re-election on Nov. 3. That’s a serious poll result. Results:

    One registered voter in the city of Detroit was born almost 200 years ago, according to a lawsuit. This still-active voter would have been born 14 years before Michigan became a state. Sound fishy to you? That's not all. This ancient voter appears to be one of thousands falsely registered in Detroit, many of whom died a decade ago or more yet were still able to drag themselves from their graves to vote in the most important election of our lifetimes (though, I guess, not their lifetimes). This week, the Public Interest Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit against Detroit election...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday amplified her criticism of the Democrats' presidential primary system, saying the states' pledged delegates — and not the superdelegates — should decide the winner. "I'm not a believer in the sway of superdelegates deciding who is going to be the nominee," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "I think we have a democratic process where people vote on both sides of the aisle … and that that should determine who the nominee is." Pelosi made waves by making similar comments amid the 2008 primary contest between then-Sens. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Hillary...

    With the final primary concluded barely hours before, top Democratic Party leaders in Washington early this morning ratcheted up the pressure to force all remaining uncommitted superdelegates to make their choice of candidate known by Friday -- and thus end the now hopeless, onetime front-running campaign of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton. The joint statement was obviously pre-planned and timed for issue shortly after Clinton refused to concede the presidential nomination victory to Barack Obama, who's gained sufficient delegates to clinch the party's nomination. Howard Dean, right, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has reaffirmed her position that superdelegates should not “overturn the will of the voters” in the face of criticism from top donors to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.). “The Speaker believes it would do great harm to the Democratic Party if superdelegates are perceived to overturn the will of the voters,” Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly said in a statement late Wednesday. “This has been her position throughout this primary season, regardless of who was ahead at any particular point in delegates or votes.” In a letter first reported Wednesday on talkingpointsmemo.com, 20 top Hillary fundraisers...

    By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group of prominent Hillary Clinton donors sent a letter to House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asking her to retract her comments on superdelegates and stay out of the Democratic fight over their role in the presidential race. The 20 prominent Clinton supporters told Pelosi she should "clarify" recent statements to make it clear superdelegates -- nearly 800 party insiders and elected officials who are free to back any candidate -- could support the candidate they think would be the best nominee. Pelosi has not publicly endorsed either Clinton...

    Twenty top Democratic donors who are supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for saying superdelegates should support the presidential candidate with the most pledged delegates. No matter what the outcome of the 10 remaining contests, it will be nearly impossible for Clinton to overcome rival Barack Obama's lead in pledged delegates, because they are awarded proportionally based on the outcome. So it will be up to the nearly 800 superdelegates — party activists and elected officials who aren't bound by any vote — to put one of the two candidates over the mark of 2,024 delegates needed...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is taking a stand on Democratic Party superdelegates that effectively gives a boost to Barack Obama. Without mentioning Obama or Hillary Clinton by name, Pelosi says it would be damaging to the party for its leaders to buck the will of convention delegates picked in primaries and caucuses. Pelosi's remarks seem to suggest she's prepared to cast her ballot at the Democratic convention in favor of the candidate who emerges from the primary season with the most pledged delegates. Barring a string of landslide victories by the former first lady in the remaining...

    ABC News' Teddy Davis Reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Friday that it would be "harmful" to Democrats if superdelegates were to give the party's presidential nomination to a candidate who is trailing in the delegates awarded in primaries and caucuses. "If the votes of the superdelegates overturn what's happened in the elections," said Pelosi, "it would be harmful to the Democratic Party." Although Pelosi offered her assessment without directly referencing Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., her comments lend considerable support to the Illinois Democrat. Obama leads Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., in pledged delegates: 1,396 to...

    Clinton’s superdelegates rejecting pleas to switch By Alexander Bolton Posted: 02/26/08 08:08 PM [ET] House Democrats supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) are rejecting Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (Calif.) plea that lawmakers not overrule voters should they be in a position to decide who will be the Democratic presidential nominee. Acrimony gathering inside the party has spurred some Democrats to begin discussing reforming the nominating process and perhaps getting rid of superdelegates altogether. Many Clinton backers representing districts that voted for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) say they are not likely to change their mind should the contest come down to the...
