  • Report: Trump Campaign Actively Discussing Radical Measures To Bypass Election Results

    A jarring new report from The Atlantic claims that the Trump campaign is discussing potential strategies to circumvent the results of the 2020 election, should Joe Biden defeat Donald Trump, by first alleging the existence of rampant fraud and then appointing electors in battleground states where Republicans maintain a legislative majority, whom Trump would ask to bypass the state’s popular vote and instead to choose electors loyal to the GOP and the sitting president.
  • WHO reports largest single-day increase in Coronavirus cases; Oklahoma sees new daily record

    06/21/2020 9:09:39 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 78 replies
    The World Health Organization has reported the largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases by its count, at more than 183,000 new cases in the latest 24 hours. The UN health agency says Brazil led the way with 54,771 cases tallied and the US next at 36,617. Over 15,400 came in in India. Experts say rising case counts can reflect multiple factors including more widespread testing as well as broader infection. Overall in the pandemic, WHO has reported 8,708,008 cases — 183,020 in the last 24 hours — with 461,715 deaths worldwide, with a daily increase of 4,743. More than two-thirds...
  • VIDEO: Media Warns of Coronavirus Surge Ahead of Trump Tulsa Rally

    VIDEO Now that there will be a Trump rally in Tulsa with over 800,000 signed up to attend, the media has discovered that coronavirus is rising again. Of course, during the recent wave of protests with little to no social distancing that concern was pretty much absent. Oddly enough, the graph of the actual deaths from the virus as you can see paints a starkly contrasting picture to what is now being portrayed.

    A former top US health official has told Congress the country could face its "darkest winter in modern history" because of the coronavirus. Rick Bright led the government agency trying to develop a vaccine, but was removed from his post last month. He has previously said he was ousted from the job for raising concern over a treatment being touted by President Donald Trump. The US leader dismissed him as a "disgruntled" employee.
  • New federal projections show huge spike in coronavirus infections in the summer if current lockdown and social distancing measures are lifted after planned 30 days

    About 95 percent of the US is currently on some form of lockdown after President Donald Trump issued guidelines that called for 30 days of measures to slow the spread of the virus. The government projections, obtained by the New York Times, indicate that lifting the strict social distancing measures now in place will see a second wave surge in infections and deaths in about June and July.
  • Ex-wildlife chief: Trump rule could kill billions of birds

    At a former open pit copper mine filled with billions of gallons of toxic water, sirens and loud pops from propane cannons echo off the granite walls to scare away birds so they don’t land. After several thousand migrating snow geese perished in the Berkeley Pit’s acidic, metal-laden waters in 2016, its owners deployed a sophisticated arsenal to frighten away flocks, including lasers, drones, fireworks and remote-controlled boats. Montana Resources already had been hazing incoming birds with spotlights and rifle shots into the water — and a spokesman says those existing deterrents likely helped the company avoid a penalty or...

    SNIP Here’s the problem: Many of these “presidential norms and traditions” that Trump has left by the wayside aren’t timeless at all; they’re actually quite new. They grew up alongside and in reaction to the expansion of both the federal state and the presidency—a process that began in the early 20th century but gained steam from the 1930s onward. With the growth of what Arthur Schlesinger Jr. called the “imperial presidency,” each occupant of the Oval Office has left his imprimatur on the development of what we think of as normative presidential conduct. That means that whatever impact Trump has...

    In 50 years, Billie Eilish will be turning 69 years old, technology will likely be unrecognizable, and the world may have lost 1/3 of all its plant and animal species. A new study has found that warming temperatures will likely cause hundreds of species to go extinct. Researchers at the University of Arizona analyzed 538 plant and animal species from around the world, 44% of which already faced local extinctions in at least one area in the world. What they discovered is that the areas that suffered from species extinctions had "larger and faster changes in hottest yearly temperatures than...

    SCHIFF: "But this has become the President's defense. And yet, this defense proved indefensible. If abuse of power is not impeachable, even though it is clear the Founders considered it the highest of all high crimes and misdemeanors, but if it were not impeachable, then a whole range of utterly unacceptable conduct and the president would now be beyond reach. Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war. Because...

    He then took the Band-Aid approach with Todd and told him: “President is going to get acquitted. That's going to be it.” But Todd could not get over it and repeated the question to NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker. “What's he going to do with acquittal,” he asked. Before Welker could begin to answer him, he shared his fear. “He already has—He’s at the Super Bowl ad. I'm sure he's going to -- God only knows what he's going to say in that if he gets acquitted.”

    Hotter weather thanks to climate change could cause a spike in deaths related to injuries—including suicides, assaults, and drownings—according to a study. One expert described the problem to Newsweek as the looming "hidden public health burden" of global warming. Deaths by suicides, assaults, transport accidents, drownings and falls were forecast to be on the up if temperatures rose on average by 1.5 and 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the authors of the paper published in the journal Nature Medicine found. The researchers analyzed data on deaths and temperatures between 1980 to 2017 in mainland United States, excluding Alaska and...

    What is the level of happiness among modern American leftists about the impeachment of President Trump? Do they celebrate this Christmas gift on the streets? (Sorry, my fellow collectivists, there is no attempt here to offend you with the word “Christmas”). One would assume that leftists do celebrate the event, but the reality is quite different and more complex. ... What is going on? One could understand that intraspecific competition among leftists is fierce, but who would predict most of American leftists unite against not only Trump, but their fellow comrades-in-ideological-arms – Democrats? Leftists still are not able to decide...

    This entire article is a lie, in addition to being about trivial things. Their suggestion is that Trump has stopped social mixing in DC. That's nonsense. Trump people aren't going out to these parties because they get "confronted." The media cheers when Senators and Secretaries are driven out of restaurants by antifa. Who wants to take a chance that these lunatics call their antifa buddies and let them know that a Trump Commerce official is present and ready to be beaten?

    The oceans are losing oxygen due to climate change, with dire consequences for marine life and vulnerable communities and fisheries, a nature conservation report revealed Saturday. This is the “ultimate wake-up call” for humanity on ever increasing carbon emissions, according to the report, published at the UN Climate Change conference in Madrid. The authors say the report, “Ocean deoxygenation: Everyone’s problem,” is the largest ever peer-reviewed study into the causes, impacts and possible solutions to the ocean’s oxygen loss. […] According to the report, areas of water with low oxygen concentrations are expanding, with roughly 700 ocean areas across the...

    – U.N.

    Nine crucial tipping points in Earth’s climate are now “active” and in danger of being crossed thanks to warming global temperatures caused by human activity, warn scientists in a commentary published on Wednesday in Nature. These climate thresholds, such as the decline of ice sheets and loss of biodiverse habitats, could cumulatively trigger a global tipping point that would be “an existential threat to civilization,” cautioned the authors of the article. “Evidence is mounting that these events could be more likely than was thought, have high impacts, and are interconnected across different biophysical systems, potentially committing the world to longterm...

The asteroid, known as 216258 2006 WH1, is set for its closest approach to Earth on December 20 - just days before Christmas. The 540 metre space rock is the same size as the World Trade Centre and would cause a significant amount of damage and mass extinction. ...
