Trump signs executive order extending ban on offshore drilling off Florida coast

Trump signs executive order extending ban on offshore drilling off Florida coast | 08 Sept 2020 | President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order to extend and expand a ban on oil drilling off the coast of Florida. Speaking at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum in Jupiter, Fla., Trump said he would extend the existing moratorium on offshore oil exploration in the Gulf of Mexico off Florida's west coast through 2032 and expand it to include the Atlantic coasts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina... Current Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a close ally of Trump's, also opposed the offshore drilling plan as part of his campaign platform and on Tuesday hailed the order as "another great win" for Florida's environment.

COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Unlikely in Canada, Say Health Officials

COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Unlikely in Canada, Say Health Officials | 07 Sept 2020 | The government of Canada has signed deals to purchase COVID-19 vaccines from four pharmaceutical companies when their vaccines are approved to be given to the public. According to Canada's Minister of Public Services and Procurement Anita Anand, the Canadian government has contracts with Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson), Moderna, Novavax and Pfizer for up to 190 million doses of their experimental Ad26... All of the companies from which Canada plans to buy COVID-19 vaccines have received funding from the U.S. government "Operation Warp Speed" (OWS)  program designed to accelerate development, production and delivery of a COVID-19 vaccine by January 2021. Recently, Kelvin Goertzen, Minister of Education for the province of Manitoba, said: "For those who refuse to get a vaccine, that is absolutely your right! And it should be protected." He added, "While I personally support vaccination, I also believe that vaccination should be a personal choice. There has never been a mandatory vaccine in Canada federally or provincially."

US Army vet says he was used as a 'prop' in anti-Trump 'propaganda'

US Army vet says he was used as a 'prop' in anti-Trump 'propaganda' | 08 Sept 2020 | One U.S. wounded veteran is speaking out against his image being used across all social media platforms to further perpetuate a story he believes is false and made up by Democrats for political gain. "I'm just so irritated that they put my image up there because now it looks like the president called me a loser." Bobby Henline, a four-tour Iraq War veteran told Fox News referring to comments allegedly made by the president regarding wounded veterans... Henline is the lone survivor out of five soldiers in an IED blast in Iraq. He quickly took to Instagram to criticize those using him in order to spread their own "propaganda."

AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial after unexplained illness in volunteer

AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial after unexplained illness in volunteer | 08 Sept 2020 | Drug giant AstraZeneca said Tuesday it had paused a trial of its coronavirus vaccine because of an unexplained illness in one of the volunteers... It was not immediately clear if the pause involved only US trial sites or all of the company's trial sites around the world. A Data and Safety Monitoring Board usually monitors trials for adverse events and can order a pause or halt to a trial, but AstraZeneca did not say who had stopped the trial. An AstraZeneca spokesperson later said the illness affected a participant in Britain, but said all of the company’s trials of the vaccine globally would be paused.

Shelby County, TN, woman who passed away 6 months ago gets letter saying she is COVID-19 positive

Shelby County, TN, woman who passed away 6 months ago gets letter saying she is COVID-19 positive --She died in February, but the test supposedly took place in June. | 03 Sept 2020 | (TN) A Shelby County man questions what is going on at the Shelby County Health Department. His mother died six months ago, but the health department just sent her a letter saying she is COVID-19 positive. Troy Whittington said he was surprised when he opened the letter this week from the Shelby County Health Department. He knew what was in that letter was false. "I'm just having a hard time understanding how they can say someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive," said Whittington. Whittington said a letter arrived from the Shelby County Health Department for his mother, Sandra Whittington. The letter says she has been diagnosed as COVID positive and needed to isolate. That would be difficult, according to her obituary: the 66-year-old died February 16th. That was weeks before the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Shelby County.

'Dead" Virus Cells Frequently Trigger 'False Positives' in Most Common COVID Test, New Study Finds

'Dead" Virus Cells Frequently Trigger 'False Positives' in Most Common COVID Test, New Study Finds | 05 Sept 2020 | New research from the University of Oxford's Center for Evidence-Based Medicine and the University of the West of England has found that the swab-based technique used for most COVID-19 testing is at risk of returning "false positives" since copies of the virus's RNA detected by the tests might simply be dead, inactive material from a weeks-old infection. Although patients infected with COVID-19 are typically only infectious for a week or less, tests can be triggered by virus genetic material left over from a weeks-old infection. The team's research involved analyzing 25 studies on the widely used polymerase chain reaction test. PCR tests use material collected with a swab - the most common type of test around the world, and especially in the US - then utilize a "genetic photocopying" technique that allows scientists to magnify the small sample of genetic material collected, which they can then analyze for signs of viral RNA. What the researchers here have effectively found is that these PCR tests just aren't sensitive enough to distinguish if the viral material is active and infectious, or dead and inert.

Dick Morris: Chief Justice Roberts Will End Up Deciding Election

Dick Morris: Chief Justice Roberts Will End Up Deciding Election | 07 Sept 2020 | The controversy over mail-in ballots will result in Supreme Court Chief Justice [deep-state dirt-bag] John Roberts deciding the 2020 presidential election, political commentator Dick Morris said on Sunday. Speaking on "The Cats Roundtable" radio show on WABC 770 AM in New York, Morris explained that "the blue state governors are mailing out tens of millions of ballots. They're going to be returned with a vote on them, probably for [Democratic presidential nominee Joe] Biden." Morris, who was a political advisor to President Bill Clinton before returning to the Republican Party in 2011, said that on election night, President Donald Trump will appear to have won all the swing states and emerge victorious in a landslide. But then, Morris contended, "day after day, week after week, you’re going to find another million ballots counted here, another half million there … And gradually these Democratic liberal secretaries of state who are in charge of the election in most of these blue states, will say, 'We're sorry. It turns out Biden carried Wisconsin, not Trump.'" ...At this stage, the dispute will "probably go up to the federal courts. And the U.S. Supreme Court will eventually make the decision. And then the entire election will be in the hands literally of John Roberts."

Pittsburgh cops investigate video appearing to show protesters clash with diners | 07 Sept 2020 |Authorities in Pittsburgh, Pa., said they were investigating a newly released video that appeared to show protesters confronting outdoor diners in the city's downtown on Saturday, a report said. One of the videos that were posted online appeared to show a man holding a megaphone calling diners at the establishment an "embarrassment." Some of the diners can be seen getting up from their seats. Another protester could be seen giving an elderly couple the middle finger before someone else walks over to the pair, takes what appears to be a full glass of beer and drinks the entire glass. Another protester reportedly smashed a wine glass.

National Guard rescues 200 from California wildfire | 06 Sept 2020 | More than 200 people were rescued by the National Guard from a wildfire in a recreational area in California, officials said Sunday. The Madera County Sheriff's office said in a Facebook post that officials had rescued people sheltering-in-place at Mammoth Pool, a reservoir on the San Joaquin River about 45 miles north of Fresno, during the wildfire which was named the Creek Fire. Twenty of those rescued have been transported to area hospitals and "any others in need of medical attention are being treated," the sheriff's office said. A National Guard spokesman told CBS San Francisco a Chinook helicopter airlifted the first 50 to 60 evacuees to Fresno Airport, adding that some had "been injured by the flame of the fire."

VA secretary dismisses Atlantic report: The anonymous sources are 'same people' behind 'fake strokes, Russian collusion'

VA secretary dismisses Atlantic report: The anonymous sources are 'same people' behind 'fake strokes, Russian collusion' | 06 Sept 2020 | Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie defended President Trump after a scathing report by the Atlantic claimed his boss used derisive language referring to fallen soldiers as "losers" and dead Marines as "suckers." When asked by CNN if he's ever heard the president use that kind of talk to describe U.S. service members or veterans, Wilkie responded, "absolutely not," adding he would be offended if the report is true. "I think [the] anonymous [sources] are the same people that brought you fake heart attacks, fake strokes, Russian collusion," Wilkie said Sunday on "State of the Union," referring to other stories the Trump administration has pegged as false.

Trump: Schools teaching 1619 Project in curriculum 'will not be funded'

Trump: Schools teaching 1619 Project in curriculum 'will not be funded' | 06 Sept 2020 | President Trump threatened to redirect funds away from public schools teaching an alternative view of U.S. history based on slavery. In a Sunday morning tweet, Trump said the Education Department would investigate schools that seek to integrate the 1619 Project, an ongoing New York Times Magazine project that argues the American founding began the year the first slaves were sold to British colonists, rather than 1776, the year the United States declared independence. "Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!" Trump said in response to a tweet that lamented the project being "implemented" into California public schools.

Serbia, Kosovo normalize economic ties, gesture to Israel

Serbia, Kosovo normalize economic ties, gesture to Israel | 04 Sept 2020 | President Donald Trump announced Friday that Serbia and Kosovo have agreed to normalize economic ties as part of U.S.-brokered talks that include Belgrade moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, and mutual recognition between Israel and Kosovo. After two days of meetings with Trump administration officials, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo's Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti agreed to cooperate on a range of economic fronts to attract investment and create jobs. The announcement provided Trump with a diplomatic win ahead of the November presidential election and furthers his administration's push to improve Israel's international standing.

Anti-Trump group calls for nationwide protests in 23 cities

Anti-Trump group calls for nationwide protests in 23 cities | 05 Sept 2020 | An anti-Trump group is calling for nationwide protests on Saturday -- seeking to fuel the left-wing protests that have roiled the country throughout the summer. The left-wing [sic] group "Refuse Facism" is organizing the nationwide events, in places like New York City, Cleveland, Philadelphia and the Hatfield Courthouse in Portland -- where protests and riots have hit the federal property for more than 100 days. "On September 5th, we must make a LIVING DECLARATION to the world that we are uniting, we are organizing, we are determined, we are preparing to struggle with all we've got, starting now and not stopping until the Trump/Pence regime is driven from power and its fascist program brought to a halt," the group said in a statement. Elsewhere, protests are planned for Detroit, Houston, San Francisco and Chicago. According to Reuters, the group has protests planned in 23 cities all together. [Where were these frauds when unelected George W. Bush was blowing up the Middle East and murdering 100,000 Iraqis? Where were protests when Obama/Biden's CIA was backing and funding ISIS, to justify continued intervention in the Middle East, after Obama lied and said he wanted to end the war in (on) Iraq? Notice how these scum-bags never protest the Big Tech tyrants - the biggest monopolists in world history - to force them to allow free speech, Amazon to actually pay taxes, economic justice, and/or an end to intervention in foreign lands at the behest of globalists? Of course not. Because George Soros and other corporate socialists are funding these terrorists. They ARE the Deep State, executing a coup. --LRP]

State Dept. Records Confirm Ukraine Embassy Was Spying on Journalists, Trump Supporters - Judicial Watch

State Dept. Records Confirm Ukraine Embassy Was Spying on Journalists, Trump Supporters - Judicial Watch | 02 Sept 2020 | State Department records obtained by Judicial Watch confirm what sources told SaraACarter.com last October, that the Ukrainian Embassy, under former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch 'monitored, in potential violation of the law' journalists, a member of President Donald Trump's family and others they deemed allies of the president. In October, Judicial Watch issued a Freedom of Information Act request to the State Department asking for "any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the monitoring of any U.S.-based journalist, reporter, or media commentator by any employee or office of the Department of State between January 1, 2019 and the present." At the time, this reporter spoke to sources that had confirmed that members of the media, including myself and 12 others, were having their social media accounts spied on by members of the Ukrainian embassy against policy and using tax payer dollars to do so...A source with knowledge confirmed to SaraACarter.com that Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee, had allegedly requested the monitoring of this reporter. A source, with knowledge of the information, said "Sara Carter, as well as The Hill's former columnist John Solomon, among others, were being monitored."

Reporters blasted for 'shamefully embarrassing' softball questions at rare Biden press conference

Reporters blasted for 'shamefully embarrassing' softball questions at rare Biden press conference | 04 Sept 2020 | Reporters who were able to ask questions at Joe Biden's press conference Friday were torn apart by critics for failing to properly grill the Democratic presidential candidate. Biden, who took questions for the second time this week after going approximately a month without holding a single press conference, spent much of his time blasting President Trump over a [fabricated] report in The Atlantic magazine that he disparaged fallen World War I soldiers during a trip to France in 2018. However, those who were looking forward to hearing Biden respond to tough questions were left disappointed. The first question, posed by Atlantic staff writer Edward-Isaac Dovere, was about the magazine's bombshell report. "When you hear these remarks -- 'suckers,' 'losers,' recoiling from amputees, what does it tell you about President Trump's soul and the life he leads?" Dovere asked.

Secret Service Inadvertently Confirms Gateway Pundit Story About Biden Sexually Assaulting Agent's Girlfriend

Secret Service Inadvertently Confirms Gateway Pundit Story About Biden Sexually Assaulting Agent's Girlfriend | 03 Sept 2020 | In 2017, the Gateway Pundit exclusively reported that a Secret Service agent was suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving then-Vice President Joe Biden after he cupped his girlfriend's breast while the couple was taking a photo with him. The situation got so heated, a source who was a Secret Service agent at the time told TGP, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, "we had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend's asses." The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family. The Secret Service has now inadvertently confirmed our report to Judicial Watch, who has filed a lawsuit after the Secret Service failed to respond to a July 14, 2020, administrative appeal challenging its claim that all files related to the 2009 altercation, "ha[d] been destroyed," due to "retention standards."

Serial killer Cuomo (11,000+ murdered in New York nursing homes) threatens Trump: Gov. Cuomo says: Trump 'better have an army' to protect him if he comes to NYC | 02 Sept 2020 | New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday all but threatened President Trump's safety if he returns to New York City in a rant responding to an exclusive story by The Post that Trump is looking to pull federal funds from "lawless" cities including New York. Cuomo called an emergency press briefing within a half hour on Wednesday night to tear into Trump for the order, which cites New York’s rising murder rate and defunding of the NYPD. "He better have an army if he thinks he's gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don't want to have anything to do with him," the Democrat said, all but threatening the commander in chief.

Appeals court deals setback to Flynn's attempt to end DOJ case against him

Appeals court deals setback to Flynn's attempt to end DOJ case against him --The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals voted 8-2 to reject Flynn's effort to dismiss the case immediately. | 31 Aug 2020 | A federal appeals court has dealt a setback to Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's first national security adviser, ruling that a District Court judge can proceed with a planned hearing on the Justice Department's attempt to abandon the criminal false-statement case against Flynn. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, sitting en banc, voted 8-2 to reject Flynn's effort to dismiss the case immediately. The court's ruling Monday also rejected efforts by Flynn to remove District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan from the case over allegations of bias. The new decision effectively overturns a June ruling from a divided three-judge panel, who backed Flynn's attempt to force an end to the prosecution.

Pelosi fights back: 'The salon owes me an apology for setting me up' --Local ordinances are keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic | 02 Sept 2020 | A defiant House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday claimed she was “set up” and a hair salon in San Francisco "owes" her an "apology" after it was revealed the California Democrat visited the business despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic. Pelosi, D-Calif., was responding to backlash after Fox News first reported that she visited a ESalonSF in San Francisco on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out. Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.

CDC tells states to be ready to distribute potential COVID-19 vaccine by Nov. 1

CDC tells states to be ready to distribute potential COVID-19 vaccine by Nov. 1 | 02 Sept 2020 | The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has told state governors and health officials to be ready to distribute a possible coronavirus vaccine by Nov. 1, reports said Wednesday. CDC Director Robert Redfield wrote in a letter to the officials last week that the McKesson Corporation -- a Texas-based health care company -- would soon request permits to build distribution sites, and that the process should be expedited, according to The Hill. Documents outlining the distribution of two potential vaccines were also sent last week to every state and US territory, along with five major cities, according to the New York Times: New York, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia and San Antonio. The documents describe two unnamed vaccine candidates, each of which would require two doses spaced a few weeks apart, the Times reported. Essential workers, national security employees, senior citizens and members of particularly vulnerable racial and ethnic groups would be among those prioritized for the treatments, the documents reportedly said. [Right, killing as many senior citizens and African Americans as possible, to benefit Big Pharma. Once again, Black people are being used as Big Pharma's guinea pigs. (Where's Black Lives Matter? The corporate socialists aka Black Lives Matter are missing in action, of course.) We do not want this rushed, deadly COVID-1984 vaccine.]

Anti-vaccine group sues Facebook, claims 'fact-checking' is censorship

Anti-vaccine group sues Facebook, claims 'fact-checking' is censorship | 18 Aug 2020 | A notorious anti-vaccine group spearheaded by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. filed suit today in federal court in California alleging that Facebook's "fact-checking" [censorship] program for false scientific or medical misinformation violates its constitutional rights. [It does.] Children's Health Defense claims in its suit that Facebook, its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and the organizations Science Feedback, Poynter, and PolitiFact acted "jointly or in concert with federal government agencies" to infringe on CHD's First and Fifth Amendment rights. The suit also alleges Facebook and the fact-checking organizations colluded to commit wire fraud by "clearing the field" of anti-vaccine ads. Facebook has "insidious conflicts with the pharmaceutical industry and its captive health agencies," CHD claimed in a press release. "Facebook currently censors Children’s Health Defense's page, targeting its purge against factual information about vaccines, 5G and public health agencies." "This is an important First Amendment case testing the boundaries of government authority to openly censor unwanted critiques of government policies and pharmaceutical and telecom products on privately owned internet platforms," Kennedy added in a written statement.

Markey defeats Kennedy in Massachusetts

Markey defeats Kennedy in Massachusetts | 01 Sept 2020 | Sen. Ed Markey (D) defeated Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D) in the Massachusetts Senate primary on Tuesday, overcoming a high-profile challenge that drew the attention of the national media as well as some of the biggest players in Democratic politics... The incumbent senator boasted support from prominent progressive groups such as the Sunrise Movement and Our Revolution as well as left-wing congressional candidates Jamaal Bowman and Cori Bush. Kennedy started out with a double-digit lead in the polls when he announced he was challenging Markey last year. However, despite the public backing of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) and other high-profile members of the House, his lead evaporated in the final weeks of the campaign, with the RealClearPolitics polling average showing Markey with an 11.2-point lead.

Gov. Ned Lamont extends COVID-19 state of emergency in Connecticut, to Ensure Destruction of State's Economy

Breaking: Gov. Ned Lamont extends COVID-19 state of emergency in Connecticut, to Ensure Destruction of State's Economy --Petty dictator extends insane shut-down of Connecticut until at least February 9, 2021 | 01 Sept 2020 |  Gov. Ned Lamont (D-Deranged) on Tuesday extended Connecticut's state of emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic to Feb., 9, 2021, saying the power to order shutdowns, re-openings and other steps remains critical to continue fighting the spread of COVID-19. [But, in actuality, it's to spread false fear and panic to aid China Joe in November's election.] Lamont on Monday announced his intention to extend the emergency order. Now that he has formally filed for the extension, legislative leaders have 72 hours to nullify the extension, according to the governor's office. While Democratic leaders have supported for the extension and for Lamont’s handling of the pandemic so far, Republican leaders have expressed concerns about the extension. In a Tuesday letter to Democratic legislative leaders, Senate Republican leader Len Fasano and House Republican leader Themis Klarides urged for some power to be shifted back to the legislative branch.

Professor who said 'Wuhan virus' faces calls for removal

Professor who said 'Wuhan virus' faces calls for removal --UCLA engineering students want a professor replaced as chair of the computer science department for allegedly after using the phrase 'Wuhan virus.' | 31 Aug 2020 | UCLA engineering students are calling for the replacement of UCLA Professor Eliezar Gafni as chair of the UCLA Computer Science Department. In a letter addressed to Dean Jayathi Murthy of the Engineering Department and the UCLA Computer Science Department, UCLA students accused the professor of exhibiting racism by using the term "'Wuhan virus' as an identifier for COVID-19," among other incidents. "Although Professor Gafni has demonstrated exceptional postgraduate achievements and excellence in his academic work, he has not exhibited the strong sense of ethical and societal responsibility or the collaborative skills – especially with regard to clear communication and inclusivity – that are essential for this role," the letter stated.

Facebook will stop Australians from posting news

Facebook will stop Australians from posting news --Social media giant fights back against 'unprecedented' laws. | 01 Sept 2020 | Facebook said Australian users will no longer be able to post news stories on its platforms in protest of proposed media bargaining legislation. "Assuming this draft code becomes law, we will reluctantly stop allowing publishers and people in Australia from sharing local and international news on Facebook and Instagram," Managing Director of Facebook Australia and New Zealand, Will Easton, said in a statement. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) proposed its code of conduct in late July. These laws would see Australian news organisations bargain with digital platforms like Facebook and Google to receive remuneration for news content shared on their platforms.

D.C. Circuit panel guts House subpoena power

D.C. Circuit panel guts House subpoena power --The judges ruled 2-1 that the House of Representatives must pass a new law to make its subpoenas enforceable. | 31 Aug 2020 | A divided federal appeals court panel dealt a severe blow to the U.S. House of Representatives’ investigative power Monday, ruling that the House can’t go to court to enforce subpoenas because there is no statute giving that chamber the authority to do so. The 2-1 ruling marked the second time a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals panel essentially voided a subpoena the House issued last year to Donald McGahn demanding the former White House counsel testify about his dealings with President Donald Trump related to the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia...The panel majority said Congress is free to pass a law making House subpoenas enforceable, but the courts can't create a legal mechanism to mandate compliance in the meantime. The House is likely to ask the full bench of the appeals court to take up the question.
