  • Howard Dean Backs China Sanctions Against Hawley, Cruz, Rubio

    08/10/2020 4:57:45 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 24 replies
    Dean tweeted support for Beijing's decision to impose economic sanctions on 11 U.S. legislators and human-rights activists, including Republican senators Josh Hawley (R., Mo.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The measures are in response to the Trump administration's decision to sanction top Hong Kong officials for participating in Beijing's crackdown on the pro-democracy movement. "We'd like to sanction them too., [sic.] Can we send them to Beijing permanently," Dean wrote on Monday in a tweet linking to a news article about the sanctions.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch ^ | 8/5/20 | Christian Gooden
    Ignoring pleas from Republican leaders, Missouri voters approved a plan Tuesday to expand Medicaid coverage to more than 230,000 low-income people in the state. Missouri voted to expand its Medicaid program, as 53% of voters supported the measure. Missouri now joins 37 other states that have already expanded the federally subsidized health insurance program. The decision will mean adults between the ages of 19 and 65 whose income is at or below 138% of the federal poverty level will be covered. As of this year, that amounts to $17,608 for an individual and $36,156 for a household of four. The...

    My husband and I were at the Truman VA hospital in Columbia, Missouri for testing regarding exposure to harmful chemicals at a site he worked at in Iraq. He had been exposed to chemicals that were carcinogens during one of his trips in Iraq and he was being tested for cancer-causing agents in his lungs. I was trying to get back down to the ground floor. There were no windows, and the upstairs floor seemed to wind around. I could not find the elevator or stairs. I started to feel claustrophobic as I had been locked in a basement as...

    St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner justifiably got a lot of criticism for filing charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for displaying guns to defend themselves and their property. Given her political leanings, it seemed a completely political move on her part. But perhaps she should have been holding up a mirror to herself and keeping her own house in order. According to reports by KMOV4, she allegedly took several trips that she failed to disclose including to Portugal, Houston, Selma and New Haven, despite the law requiring that they be disclosed...

According to Just The News, the request query “sought the release of roughly two and a half years’ worth of communications between Gardner, her staff, and numerous individuals such as George Soros, the Missouri Workforce Housing Association, state Representatives Stacy Newman and Jay...

    P.J. Media ^ | 7/26/2020 | VICTORIA TAFT
    Democrats have fully pivoted on the nightly Portland riots. They’ve gone all-in on blaming the riots on President Trump thus allying themselves with the antifa and Black Lives Matter anarchist and communist mobs. Instead of black bloc balaclavas or masks, the politicians have donned the cloak of civil libertarianism. In doing so, they make a mockery of it. Democrats, so far as I can find, have never denounced the violent mobs, though New York Governor Andrew Cuomo once wagged a finger at George Floyd rioters while simultaneously explaining that it wasn’t really their fault because “income inequality” led to violence....

At the request of Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley, crime lab staff members field stripped the handgun and found that it had been assembled incorrectly....
