U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said the Justice Department’s request to suppress the tell-all book on national security grounds would be impossible to enforce, but criticized Bolton's decision to move ahead with publication without the explicit go-ahead from the government." While Bolton's unilateral conduct raises grave national security concerns, the government has not established that an injunction is an appropriate remedy," Lamberth wrote.

John Cornyn of Texas also announced plans to introduce a bill to make Juneteenth a federal holiday. "Texans have celebrated this end to slavery for 155 years.

Gov. Roy Cooper vetoes bill to reopen gyms, bars in North Carolina

Gov. Roy Cooper vetoes bill to reopen gyms, bars in North Carolina | 19 June 2020 | Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a bill aiming to reopen gyms and bars in North Carolina temporarily. Though the bill specifically provided a loophole through which Cooper could re-close these businesses should North Carolina see a spike in cases, Cooper repeatedly expressed his concerns over the legislation... Sen. Rick Gunn (R-Alamance) released the following statement in response: "On the same day attorneys argued in court that Gov. Cooper's different treatment of bars and restaurants is inexplicable, Gov. Cooper vetoed this economic lifeline for thousands of businesses across North Carolina. Our state is one of only four that has not reopened gyms and fitness centers. Why did he walk with protesters without a mask on, but prohibits everyday citizens from using an elliptical machine at a gym? Why is it safe to have a drink outside at a restaurant, but it's dangerous to have a drink outside at a bar? Gov. Cooper needs to release the science behind these apparent contradictions."

What will a COVID-19 vaccine look like? Don't expect a cure-all, scientists say

What will a COVID-19 vaccine look like? Don't expect a cure-all, scientists say --"We cannot promise 100% chance of success," a government official said. | 19 June 2020 | Since the onset of the coronavirus outbreak, a vaccine has been widely regarded pimped by pharma-terrorists as the best path toward reopening society and returning to normalcy. Scientists have worked around-the-clock to develop a vaccine even entering late-stage human studies at record speed for the disease that has killed more than 430,000 people worldwide. Yet, despite these Herculean efforts, scientists say a one-time cure-all is unlikely. Data on close cousins of the COVID-19 virus, including seasonal coronaviruses that cause the common cold, suggests the COVID-19 vaccine probably won't offer lifelong protection -- although more research is needed to understand how well and for how long a potential vaccine could work. [What will a COVID-19 vaccine look like? No one wants to find out. In fact, we will fight to the death to keep from finding out.]

There she had failed to get charges brought against Derek Chauvin -- the police officer who was seen with his knee on Floyd's neck -- for a separate incident of fatally shooting another man.

Shocking revelations by a nurse from Elmhurst Hospital, the New York 'epicenter of the epicenter'

Shocking revelations by a nurse from Elmhurst Hospital, the New York 'epicenter of the epicenter' | 12 June 2020 | A nurse Erin Marie Olszewski reveals that at Elmhurst Hospital, non-Covid patients and Covid confirmed patients are housed in the same rooms. People who have tested negative for COVID-19 several times are referred to as "Covid confirmed" and then connected to a ventilator. Respirators are probably the most common cause of death in the pandemic. Tranquilizers and paralytics in combination with a pressure injury kill 90 percent of the people who are ventilated in Elmhurst (and thus in large parts of the world). Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections are the main transmission vector. (Video)

Supreme Court rules against Trump administration bid to end DACA program | 18 June 2020 | The Supreme Court ruled Thursday against the Trump administration's effort to end the Obama-era program [by executive order] that offers legal protections to young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
