    Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump on Tuesday night for questioning potential running mate Tammy Duckworth's patriotism, calling it 'disgusting' and 'sickening.' The former vice president did not mince words when it came to his rival for the White House, saying Trump was carried 'around like a puppy in one of those little puppy cages' by Russian President Vladimir Putin and calling Trump's attacks on Duckworth a sign of the 'depravity' in the White House. Duckworth, the Democratic senator from Illinois who lost both legs while serving as a combat pilot in Iraq, is being vetted as Biden's running mate...

    Despite an extended deadline, local government cash infusions and grassroots campaigns to improve Houston’s 2020 census response rate, almost half of Houston households are still missing from the official count. As of July 5, 52.5% of Houston’s estimated 2.32 million residents have completed the decennial survey, according to the most recent census data. In Harris County, the response has been about 56 percent. But Houston is not alone. Across the country, many other large metropolitan areas are also struggling to get their populations counted, reporting similar self-response rates to Houston’s. In Los Angeles, the household response rate is 51.6%, while...

    When U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar got remarried in March following her divorce, the Minnesota Democrat tied the knot with a man who was a member of her political consulting team. Now, campaign data show Omar has paid Tim Mynett’s consulting firm a total of more than $878,000 since 2018 – including $189,000 just weeks after the couple announced they were husband and wife, the New York Post reported. In the first quarter of this year, Mynett’s E Street Group has received more than $292,000 from Omar’s campaign for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services, the Star Tribune of Minneapolis...
  • Berkeley students planning fraudulent course to circumvent ICE rules, avoid deportations (no one is above the law???)

    Hundreds of students at the University of California -- Berkeley are discussing a plan to create a course solely to help international students on F-1 student visas avoid deportation under new U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regulations -- and they say at least one faculty member is on board, Fox News has learned. The plan, which could run afoul of laws against immigration fraud if enacted in its current form, was hatched hours after ICE announced Monday that foreign students in the country are required to take some in-person instruction or they will not be allowed to legally remain...
  • Will there EVER be a Reckoning Over Flynn and the Coup Attempt?

    07/07/2020 11:02:55 PM PDT · by guido911 · 7 replies
    Vent on. Before Trump was inaugurated efforts to disrupt his presidency were underway. Trump has had to counter punch through all this and impeachment, and no one has had to answer. None. Meanwhile, the guy that first discussed the Logan Act, and caused Flynn the grief he endured, is now running for president. But what leads? Not Biden raping the integrity and honorable service of Flynn. Of course its Tucker Carlson poking at veteran Tammy Duckworth. I cannot change the media bias, but I can sure change who gets my campaign money. I get about 6 robo-texts a day wanting...

    Research was omitted from landmark paper claiming natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. Report: Claire Robinson Chinese and US scientists have been collaborating for years in dangerous gain-of-function experiments that involve genetically engineering coronaviruses from bats and other animals, as revealed by a series of scientific publications. The coronaviruses are related to the SARS viruses that cause severe respiratory diseases in humans. The scientists were based at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China, the lab suspected by some of accidentally releasing the SARS-CoV-2 virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic, and at the University of North Carolina (UNC) in the US....

  • All black lives matter': Kayleigh McEnany scolds press corps for questions about Confederate flag instead of weekend crime

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 6 2020 | Dominick Mastrangelo
    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany admonished reporters for repeatedly asking her about the Confederate flag and a tweet from President Trump instead of the violence that broke out in major cities over Independence Day weekend. "Finally, I would end with this: I was asked probably 12 questions about the Confederate flag. This president is focused on action. I’m a little dismayed that I didn’t receive one question on the deaths in this country this weekend," McEnany told members of the media during a press briefing on Monday. "I didn’t receive one question about New York City shootings doubling for...

    Over the past month, statues and depictions of prior presidents, Christopher Columbus, and even religious homages have been subjected to forms of vandalism by many unhinged “activists”. So, it is with little surprise that the latest casualty of the attacks on statues was none other than that of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass in Maplewood Park. According to Rochester Police, the tearing down of the statue of Douglass took place during the Fourth of July weekend. Police stated that the depiction of Douglass was removed from the base where it was erected, and was found approximately 50 feet from its original...

In written public comments sent to city councilors ahead of a June 29 meeting and provided to the Journal, local business owners from a wide range of industries begged the council to vote down proposed ordinances they said would decimate their already battered margins and in some cases force them out of business or out of the city.

    An unsigned letter circulated among the Los Angeles Police Department rank and file last week, encouraging officers to call in sick to protect their own interests. It had been been a month of upheaval for police, with unprecedented protests over police killings of Black people and the Los Angeles City Council agreeing to cut the LAPD’s budget by $150 million amid calls for sweeping reforms. LAPD commanders are investigating whether an unusual spike in officers calling in sick over the July 4 weekend was the result of an orchestrated protest or labor action, which would be illegal. Sources in the...

    Patrick Harrington is sitting on a rock high on a hilltop...his head in his hands. The owner of Kindness Yoga, and one of the most well-known yogis in Denver, is struggling to piece together the words to explain what happened — in the span of a week — to his once-stellar reputation and his 19-year-old business. He is stunned, though remorseful. He is eager to speak up, yet on edge for fear of saying anything that could make all of this any worse. Harrington, a straight, white guy who expanded Kindness to nine studios and 160 employees across metro Denver,...
