    On September 2, 2014, Russia fired at us with all kinds of heavy fire from its territory, and today #2_September_2020, everything is on fire. It started yesterday in a gray zone behind a demolished school building (many “thanks” for the withdrawal of troops), and today there is a fire in Bolotenny and Sizom. These villages are right at the Russian border. I am not hinting at anything, but I am very interested in why does it burn exactly where the Russian snout is sticking out?! In short: we are f***ed. The photo was taken just now at the Olkhovsky dachas,...

    George Will plans to break the habit of a lifetime for the 2020 election. The longtime conservative commentator said Monday he’ll cast his vote for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in order to help defeat President Donald Trump at the ballot box. It will likely be the first time that he has ever voted for a Democrat, Will told USA Today’s Susan Page during a conversation for The Aspen Institute. “I’m a big believer in parties, in party strength and party tickets. Not this year,” said Will, who quit the GOP in June 2016 in protest of Trump’s then-imminent nomination...

    President Trump’s allies are urging him to change his tone and key figures in the campaign’s orbit are pointing fingers over who is to blame for the president’s spiraling poll numbers with just over four months to go until Election Day. There is frustration in Trump World over the president's lack of discipline and his confrontational tone during a time of high anxiety over the coronavirus and civil unrest around the death of George Floyd while in police custody. Some Trump allies are worried that campaign manager Brad Parscale is in over his head. And there is sniping between pro-Trump...
  • Trump's indoor rally is likely to be a much bigger coronavirus hotspot than any outdoor protest

    06/17/2020 3:11:25 PM PDT · by MNDude · 65 replies
    President Trump is hosting a rally this weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at an indoor arena with space for more than 19,000 people. Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter protests continue outdoors in cities around the globe. Both rallies and protests involve large crowds, standing close together, which means people could presumably catch the coronavirus at either type of event. But scientific evidence suggests that gathering indoors, without masks, as Trump's campaign plans to do this weekend, is a much more dangerous place for the coronavirus to spread than outside at a protest.
  • Senate panel approves subpoena in Biden-related probe as GOP ramps up investigations

    A Senate committee voted along party lines Wednesday to issue a subpoena as part of the Republican-led investigation into the Ukrainian energy firm that hired former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. The subpoena is one of several steps Senate Republicans are taking to ramp up probes related to the Obama administration and Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee who will likely challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 8-6 to authorize the subpoena Chairman Ron Johnson requested for Blue Star Strategies, a US public affairs firm that worked...

    Republicans and right-wing media are in a conspiracy theory-spewing meltdown. In the wake of selective, politically motivated “leaks” of sensitive documents, conservative pundits are launching an avalanche of baseless attacks against President Trump’s political opponents. But the reality is brutally obvious: Trump is weaponizing the American government to distract from his catastrophically incompetent pandemic response and the crushing economic fallout. While right-wing media continue to whip their audiences into hysteria over a nefarious Obama-led plot to undermine Trump, the documents — strategically released by Trump’s political lackeys atop the intelligence and law enforcement communities — do absolutely nothing to further...
  • Small Businesses Most In Need Didn't Get Paycheck Protection Program Loans, NY Fed Study Says

    Newsweak ^ | 5/7/20 at 12:05 AM EDT | Daniel Villarreal
    Small businesses in areas hit hardest by the coronavirus epidemic haven't been able to secure loans through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), according to a new study released Wednesday by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The study has actually shown a "negative relationship" between a state's COVID-19 cases per capita and its share of small businesses getting PPP funding. Most PPP loans have gone to central and midwestern states that have reported the fewest number of coronavirus cases. "In New York, the epicenter of the coronavirus in the United States, less than 20 percent of small businesses have...

    Well, that’s a big change. A formerly vegan influencer revealed to her fans that she spent 30 days eating nothing but meat and animal products. She also revealed that the new diet had some surprisingly positive effects on her health. Alyse Parker, who has over 200K Instagram followers and over 700K Youtube subscribers, explained her decision on Instagram. In a post, she revealed that she decided to try the Carnivore Diet after hearing about all of the health benefits from friends who switched from being vegan to eating only meat and animal products.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | July 6, 2019 | Juliana Feliciano Reyes and David Gambacorta
    The skies grew dark Saturday afternoon as tornado alerts buzzed cell phones across the city. Which might have explained the initial lackluster turnout for an Independence Mall protest against President Donald Trump — the third in Philadelphia in a week. But eventually, as a steady rain began to fall, three dozen protesters were listening as organizers with Refuse Fascism Philly played an audio recording published by ProPublica in 2018 of immigrant children separated from their families at the Mexican border. Chanting, “Close the camps! Trump, Pence must go!” protesters then marched with police escorts to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement...

    A group of Arizona police officers were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop on July 4 after a customer complained to staff that she “didn’t feel safe” with them being there, reports say. Five cops from the Tempe Police Department were drinking at a branch of the coffee chain in the city when they were approached by a barista and told that a customer had made a complaint about their presence. The worker is said to have told them to either move out of the complaining customer’s line of sight or leave the premises entirely, the Tempe Officers Association...

    Politico ^ | May 1, 2019 | Steven Shepard
    In recent days, President Donald Trump has turned his Twitter account into a stream of 280-character invective against Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, giving the former vice president a somnolent nickname and calling him "not very bright." Despite the ability to broadcast his electoral weapon directly at his 60 million followers, could the president’s participation on his favorite social media network actually hamper his chances at winning a second term? Nearly half of voters, 46 percent, in a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll say that, yes, Trump’s Twitter use hurts his reelection campaign - more than twice the number who say his direct-to-voters...

    I am a Jew — a New York Writer Liberal Jew, the scariest Jew of all — and from a very young age, I was taught about an unimaginable horror called the Holocaust and about an evil man named Adolf Hitler. The elderly man who sat beside me every Saturday morning in synagogue was a Holocaust survivor, and his elderly wife was a Holocaust survivor, as well. And so the first reason the comparison of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler bothers me is not because it belittles the deaths of millions of innocents, but because, frankly, it belittles Adolf Hitler.

    Hillary Clinton offered one of her most direct rebukes of President Trump in months on Thursday after Trump accused her of colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election at his campaign rally in Pennsylvania Wednesday night. At the rally Wednesday night, Trump told an arena of supporters that there was "collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia" during the 2016 election, despite offering no evidence for his claim. An intelligence community assessment in 2017 concluded that Russia's efforts were aimed at undermining the Clinton campaign. "There was a lot of collusion with them and Russia and lots of other...

    Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Thursday that he felt he "needed to correct the record" following President Trump's comments during the Helsinki summit with Russia President Vladimir Putin, adding that he wished Trump had "made a different statement" as it is "undeniable that the Russians are taking a lead on this." Our thought bubble: It was a STUNNING interview ... and is already catching heat and attention among Trump loyalists. I've already had two phone calls from sources close to Trump expressing their astonishment. The fact that Trump’s own intelligence director is saying these things...

    **SNIP** The Russia-interference-was-no-big-deal crowd also clings to the fact there’s no evidence of the greatest fear when it comes to election stealing — that hackers accessed electronic voting systems on election night and changed vote totals to hand the contest to Trump. And yet — buried beneath the headlines on Friday’s indictments — were two largely new revelations that dramatically elevated the possibility that Russian meddling wasn’t just morally and criminally wrong but actually went a long way toward snatching victory away from Clinton and handed it to Trump on Election Day. — Hacking of state voter rolls. — The...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As the American presidential election entered the final stretch in 2016, a dozen Russian military intelligence officers were scattered throughout Moscow, unleashing a massive cyber operation to disrupt the vote. That’s according to an indictment issued Friday that says the officers developed malicious computer code known as malware, hacked into Democratic Party computers and silently watched as unknowing staffers typed. The Russians stole the Democrats’ secret files. They took snapshots of their screens. They used fake emails to dupe Hillary Clinton’s staffers into exposing their passwords. And then, the indictment says, the Russians released their stolen information...

    An American company that ships cherries to a coastal province in southeast China recently encountered a new hurdle at the border: Customs officers ordered a load into quarantine for a week, so it spoiled and was sent back to the United States. American pet food-makers, meanwhile, say they're facing more rigorous inspections at ports, which delay goods from reaching shelves and ultimately hurt sales. And a U.S. manufacturer that exports vehicles to China recorded a 98% jump in random border inspections over the past month, throwing the firm behind schedule. American business leaders fear these are the "qualitative measures" China...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly has loosened his grip amid a worsening relationship with President Trump, Politico reported late Sunday.The news outlet reported that Kelly has essentially given up on trying to control the president’s impulses. He told at least one person that he will let the president do what he wants, even if it results in impeachment. Kelly, who served as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary prior to becoming chief of staff, reportedly warned current DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen against attending Monday's White House press briefing. Nielsen fielded questions on the Trump administration's "zero tolerance"...
