    Precautions put in place to slow the rise of coronavirus cases in New Orleans has inadvertently led to a rat problem for the Louisiana city. With restaurants closed save for take-out service, far less food waste is being discarded in the city's alleyways, driving the local rodent population out into the open to search for scraps. New Orleans' famous Mardi Gras celebration brought thousands of tourists to the city, and medical experts believe it might be a big factor in the city's COVID-19 outbreak. Now with Bourbon Street's famous bars all closed and people social distancing, videos show dozens of...

    The massive stimulus package awaiting a vote in the Senate would prohibit the Pentagon from shifting $10.5 billion in coronavirus funding to a counter-drug account it has been using to fund President Trump’s southern border wall. According to bill text released by the Senate Appropriations Committee, the bill would allow the Pentagon to transfer the coronavirus funds to other accounts “except for ‘Drug Interdiction and Counter-Drug Activities, Defense.’” The stimulus deal agreed to early Wednesday by the White House and Senate leaders would provide the Pentagon a total of $10.5 billion. That includes $1.5 billion for the National Guard and...

    Former organizers for Michael Bloomberg’s unsuccessful presidential bid sued the billionaire’s campaign on Monday, saying he laid them off amid the global coronavirus pandemic after promising pay and benefits through the November election. Employees resigned from good jobs to take positions with Bloomberg’s campaign, and they now face unemployment and the loss of their health insurance in the midst of the spreading virus, field organizers Alexis Sklair, Sterling Rettke and Nathaniel Brown said in their complaint, one of two proposed class action lawsuits potentially representing thousands of workers. “They promised salaries nearly double that of other campaigns,” alleged their complaint,...

    It’s official: Democrats have completely blown the messaging around coronavirus. **SNIP** Let’s examine the most recent window of exposure - the past eight days. On March 12, the New York Times ran the following headline: “The President as Bystander: Trump Struggles to Unify a Nation on Edge.” Anyone who read this would have thought, just as I did, that Trump’s goose was cooked. But in the next eight days, Americans heard little from Nancy Pelosi beyond bill negotiations. They heard little in the way of indictments from Joe Biden. They’ve heard nothing from the DNC. The scattered criticisms on the...

    Prankster vandals with a fine appreciation for animal traits may have taken it upon themselves Monday to update the Democrat logo on the Google results page for “Democratic Party”–from the tired old red, white, and blue donkey to a more suitable rat. . . . Interestingly, a Google spokesperson told Mashable that the Democrat Party has only themselves to blame because they hadn’t claimed their “Knowledge Panel,” an info box on the right side of the search results page

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, battered from his defeat in many Super Tuesday contests, warned President Barack Obama not to endorse Joe Biden, Obama’s former vice president who is now running neck and neck with Sanders for the Democratic nomination. “I have not the slightest doubt that there is enormous pressure on President Obama to jump into this race and support Joe Biden,” Sanders said during a press conference about the status of his campaign. Sanders told reporters he backed Obama’s pledge to support the Democrat who wins the nomination and his private assurances that he would not get involved in the...

    Donald Trump was right. Germs are scary. For three decades, I talked to Trump about his fear of germs. When I interviewed him at the Trump Tower restaurant during the 2016 race, the famous germophobe had a big hospital-strength bottle of hand sanitizer on the table, next to my salad, ready to squirt. He told me about the nightmarish feeling he had when a man emerged from the bathroom in a restaurant with wet hands and shook his hand. He couldn’t eat afterward. Today, in a stunning twist of fate, germs are infecting his presidency and threatening a bad prognosis...

    First there was Pizza Rat. Then there was Bagel Rat. Donut Rat even made an appearance one day. It seems the furry creatures can't get enough of New York's penchant for fast food. But New Yorkers aren't the only ones embracing a so-called 'New Year, New Me' health kick as Salad Rat has arrived on the scene. The healthy vermin was spotted hauling a salad bowl along subway tracks on Wednesday.

    Rep. Adam Schiff on Thursday delivered a last-minute pitch to have witnesses in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. Schiff said that he wants one week devoted to closed-door depositions from witnesses in the trial as senators prepare to vote on the matter Friday. “I will make an offer to opposing counsel, who says this will stretch on indefinitely if you decide to have a single witness,” Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, told senators. “Let’s cabin the depositions to one week. I think we can. I think we should. I think we must,” the California Democrat added. Trump’s legal team...

    Democrats leadership are the most corrupt politicians in the history of our country and we the people are being abused by them. Every time our country makes significant success the Dems are here to ruin that. They were well aware that when President Trump won in 2016 our country will get stronger. They didn’t have any political results so they push for a plain simple witch hunt against our President. Democrats have been searching for ways to impeach President Donald Trump since before he was elected, a Democratic congressman Al Green (D-Texas) said in early January, and the Ukraine situation...

    WASHINGTON — It was Dinetta Gilmore’s second impeachment rally within 12 hours. After joining hundreds of protesters in New York City’s Times Square last month on the eve of the House impeachment vote, the Brooklyn native packed a bag full of homemade “Reclaiming My Country” flags and caught a 2 a.m. bus to make it to Washington in time for the day-of-the-vote rally that morning on Capitol Hill. “Yes, the fix is in, but that doesn’t mean we roll over and take it,” Gilmore, 60, said then of the likelihood that the Senate would vote to acquit President Donald Trump....

    House Chief Deputy Whip Dan Kildee, D-Mich., defended House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and criticized her Senate counterpart amid controversy surrounding the Speaker's decision not to release the articles of impeachment for a trial in the Senate. "She is making the right decision," Kildee told CNN on Thursday. "The House of Representatives is not absent from the Senate trial. We're not sort of bystanders to it." He added: "We have to appoint impeachment managers and organize the case around the structure that the Senate arrives at in order to present our case in the most compelling way. Determining who the...

    They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. I think many readers of this article will respond with outrage, and many will see it says things they already knew to be true—and I think these two groups will largely overlap. The most powerful obstacle to confronting a destructive addiction is denial, and collectively we are in denial about pornography. Since it seems somehow relevant, let me state at the outset that I am French. Every fiber of my Latin, Catholic body recoils at puritanism of any sort, especially the bizarre, Anglo-Puritan kind so prevalent in America. I...

    A group of House Democratic centrists is warning its caucus that any case against President Donald Trump should steer clear of Robert Mueller - resurfacing an ugly internal debate on impeachment that could complicate the coming weeks. Multiple moderates - including freshman lawmakers deemed most at risk in 2020 - have urged Democrats not to relitigate the issues in the Mueller report in their own investigation into the Ukraine scandal. But key Democrats, including House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, have suggested that it could be included in eventual articles of impeachment, with many in the caucus still eager to repudiate...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday held a special closed-door huddle with her caucus to discuss impeachment, one day after Democrats unveiled a damning report on President Donald Trump's role in the Ukraine scandal that could lead to a vote to oust the president by year’s end. In a sign of the moment’s gravity, Pelosi and her leadership team ensured that the members-only gathering was tightly controlled, even more so than Democrats’ weekly caucus meetings. Lawmakers were not allowed to bring phones and a sign on the door read “no entrance” to keep out all staff, even senior aides who regularly...
  • Fearless rat goes on the attack by pouncing towards dog and cat when they corner it [tr]

    A courageous rat decided to fight back when it was confronted by a cat and dog in a house in Thailand. Footage shows the vermin as it squares up against the two pets in the rubbish-strewn home on Sunday, November 10. During the three-minute scrap, the rat leaps and squeaks menacingly whenever the larger animals try to corner it. The trio are first seen in the front section of the house but the tactical rat then takes the fight nearer the back - and uses cookery ware on the floor as a hiding place, and a launchpad for a counterattack.
