Trump was not told coronavirus-infected Americans would be flown home from cruise ship

Trump was not told coronavirus-infected Americans would be flown home from cruise ship | 21 Feb 2020 | President Trump grew furious with senior advisers this week over a decision to allow 14 Americans who tested positive for coronavirus to return to the United States from Japan after being assured that infected patients would remain in quarantine overseas, according to administration officials. Trump and the administration's coronavirus task force were told last Saturday that Americans who had spent weeks in quarantine aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship where the virus had spread to hundreds of passengers would be brought home on two chartered planes -- but that patients who had symptoms or the infection itself would stay in Japan. Trump was briefed on the decision and agreed that healthy passengers should not be on the plane with sick ones, three senior administration officials said. But the State Department [deep-state terrorists out to destroy the US economy] and a top U.S. health official ultimately decided to bring back the 14 Americans who tested positive for the virus on the planes and place them in isolation -- without informing the president first.

Trump furious Americans infected with coronavirus flew back to US without his permission - report

Trump furious Americans infected with coronavirus flew back to US without his permission - report | 22 Feb 2020 | President Trump was furious that 14 Americans infected with the coronavirus returned to the United States without his permission rather than remain in quarantine overseas, according to a new report. Trump had been briefed that the healthy U.S. passengers who spent weeks quarantined aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan would be allowed to fly home on two chartered planes -- while those who were sick or infected would stay in Japan to prevent the spread of the deadly virus. The president became "furious" with senior advisers after learning the 14 Americans who tested positive had been put on a plane with healthy passengers, according to The Washington Post. One official told the paper that the failure to inform Trump of the decision in advance of the plane's departure was a "big operational mistake."

Roger Stone's legal team files request for Judge Jackson's removal from case

Roger Stone's legal team files request for Judge Jackson's removal from case | 22 Feb 2020 | The legal team of Roger Stone -- the former adviser to President Trump who received a 40-month prison sentence this week -- filed court documents Friday to have the judge removed from his case. Stone's defense team argues that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's claim during his Thursday sentencing that the jury in the case had "served with integrity," should disqualify Jackson from presiding as Stone pursues his bid to receive a new trial. They argue that Jackson's description of the jury as having served with "integrity" was a display of bias on behalf of the judge in a case that has not yet concluded, despite the sentencing, because of the bid for a new trial. Making the case that the jury's integrity is in question, the defense lawyers argue that "newly discovered information" suggests "juror misconduct" occurred during the trial, thus depriving Stone of having his case heard before an impartial jury.

The Fox News host added that the nation is "enjoying a tight labor market right now," claiming that while immigration is down, employment is up. "That means there are fewer available workers; therefore, employers must pay higher wages to those workers," Carlson continued.

Dupond-Moretti said the French asylum request would be based on humanitarian and health grounds, arguing that Assange was showing signs of "psychological torture".

Whoops: Pentagon Completely Loses $700+ Million in Weapons While Waging War Against ISIS in Middle East

Whoops: Pentagon Completely Loses $700+ Million in Weapons While Waging War Against ISIS in Middle East | 21 Feb 2020 | According to a report from the Defense Department inspector general, the Pentagon has lost a shocking $715.8 million in equipment and weapons in their fight 'against' ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] in the Middle East. The shocking amount of waste was revealed due to an audit released to the public on Tuesday. The audit determined that officials working for the Special Operations Joint Task Force–Operation Inherent Resolve "did not maintain comprehensive lists of all equipment purchased and received" to help allies in Syria fight ISIS terrorists during the fiscal years of 2017 and 2018 because documentation was not properly accounted for in a centralized location.

"We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam," a Twitter official told The Hill.

"I was told a week ago. They said, you know, they're trying to start a rumor. It's disinformation. That's the only thing they're good at. They're not good at anything else. They get nothing done," Trump said, referring to Democrats. The president's remarks expanded on a tweet he sent earlier Friday.

U.S., Taliban Agree to Landmark Ceasefire |21 Feb 2020 | The United States and the Taliban have reached a landmark agreement that will significantly reduce violence in Afghanistan and pave the way for the two sides to negotiate a peace deal that could bring the 18-year war in the country to a final end, the State Department announced on Friday...

UK Hospitals to Deny Care to 'Racist' or 'Sexist' Patients

UK Hospitals to Deny Care to 'Racist' or 'Sexist' Patients --Police will also be given new powers to prosecute 'hate crimes' committed against NHS staff. | 20 Feb 2020 | Patients deemed to be "racist" or "homophobic" will be denied care in NHS Trust hospitals under new rules set to take effect in April. "Currently, staff can refuse to treat non-critical patients who are verbally aggressive or physically violent towards them," reports Sky News. "But these protections will extend to any harassment, bullying or discrimination, including homophobic, sexist or racist remarks." Police will also be given new powers to prosecute "hate crimes" committed against NHS staff... This is even worse than China's social credit score, which hasn't yet gone so far as to punish people by withdrawing medical treatment if they engage in wrongthink.

Roger Stone sentenced to 3 years for lying, witness tampering as case roils DOJ

Roger Stone sentenced to 3 years for lying, witness tampering as case roils DOJ | 20 Feb 2020 | GOP operative Roger Stone was sentenced to more than three years in prison on Thursday after days of drama ensnaring career prosecutors, the attorney general and the president over how severe Stone's punishment should be for making false statements to investigators during the Trump-Russia probe. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, while taking a firm stance toward Stone in the courtroom, also said the up to nine years originally sought by federal prosecutors was excessive. Her sentence of 40 months in prison was considerably less than that -- yet far more than the probation sought by his defense and certainly tough enough to keep speculation alive about a possible pardon from President Trump. Trump later said at an event in Las Vegas that he wants to see the process play out because he has a "very good chance of exoneration," suggesting he would wait on a possible pardon decision until all Stone's legal options are exhausted.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to the Democratic nomination. The campaign projected that if the dynamics of the primary do not change, Sanders would emerge from Super Tuesday as almost unbeatable, adding that Buttigieg was the strongest alternative to the progressive senator.
