Maryland Secretary of State, Attorney General Warn of Possible Charity Scams Related to COVID-19

ANNAPOLIS, MD—The Federal Trade Commission has reported that scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the coronavirus, including through the sale of counterfeit products and the solicitation of money and personal information. When charities request donations in response to the coronavirus, Marylanders may feel duty-bound to donate in an effort to help their neighbors. Maryland’s Secretary of State John C. Wobensmith and Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh are cautioning Marylanders to be vigilant and to donate wisely.

“During uncertain times, con artists prey on your generosity and create scams, frauds or deceptive acts to line their own pockets,” warns Secretary Wobensmith. “Be sure you know who you are giving to, and remember it is always best to give directly to well-established, reputable charitable organizations.”

The Office of the Secretary of State registers and regulates charitable organizations that solicit charitable contributions in Maryland. Together with the Attorney General’s Office, the Secretary of State’s Office works to ensure that charitable contributions go to qualified charitable organizations and are used for their intended purpose.

“Fraudsters will take advantage of nearly any opportunity to steal other people’s money,” said Attorney General Frosh. “Consumers can avoid being cheated by understanding how thieves are trying to steal their personal information and money. It is always wise to research the charity first before donating, and avoid any charity or fundraiser that is reluctant to give information on how donations are used.”

For more tips on how to give wisely, Marylanders can visit the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, Consumer Protection Division publication Consumer's Edge Charitable Giving Tips.

The Office of the Secretary of State maintains a public registry of charitable organizations authorized to solicit in Maryland. For more information and to search the registry, please visit the Secretary of State’s charities database.

If you think that you have been a victim of a deceptive or illegal charitable solicitation, contact the Charities and Legal Services Division of the Secretary of State’s Office: 410-974-5521 or 1-800-825-4510.

'I think I know': Trump says Obama hesitant to endorse Biden because 'he knows something you don't know'

President Trump said he believes he knows former President Barack Obama's secret reason for not endorsing Joe Biden.

"I don't know why President Obama hasn't supported Joe Biden a long time ago. There's something he feels is wrong," Trump said during a Wednesday press briefing at the White House. He went on to remark that Obama would not want him to win reelection.

"He knows something that you don't know, that I think I know. But you don't know," Trump added.

This week, former Vice President Joe Biden and Trump spoke over the phone to discuss the federal government's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden, at first virtual event as presumptive nominee, says he's 'coming for' Kamala Harris

At a virtual town hall on Wednesday, just hours after Bernie Sanders dropped out of the presidential race, Joe Biden assumed the mantle of his party's presumptive nominee -- and, at a separate virtual fundraiser, the former vice president suggested that one-time rival Kamala Harris may play a big role in his campaign going forward.

Streaming live to some 1,621 viewers on YouTube, Biden praised Sanders during the town hall for being a persistent and "passionate voice for progress," and also lauded the Vermont senator for "energizing millions of supporters."

"Earlier today my good friend Bernie Sanders announced he was suspending his campaign," Biden, whose comments were sometimes muddled, said at one point. "He didn't just run a political campaign. He created a movement."

Trump lays into Tennessee Valley Authority, saying he’d support big cuts to CEO’s salary

President Trump said he would support dramatically slashing the salary of the head of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the largest U.S. public power company, who he said earned a “ridiculous” amount of money.

He “has to be the highest paid man in any government,” Trump said during a coronavirus task force briefing Wednesday. “I don’t know the gentleman, but he’s got a heck of a job.”

Asked if he would support cutting the Tennessee Valley Authority CEO’s salary as part of any forthcoming infrastructure package, Trump said he’d support “reducing it by a lot.”

Dr. Fauci says US should be able to reopen schools in fall

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the face of the White House's coronavirus response, predicted Tuesday night that the United States will be able to reopen its schools in the fall thanks to the expected progress by then in disease mitigation measures for the coronavirus.

Fauci made the comments in response to a reporter during the daily White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing.

"You know, it is unpredictable, but you can get a feel for it if we start talking about the things where the curve goes down," Fauci said. "How we respond and what kind of a rebound we see or don't see, I think is going to have a lot of influence probably more immediately on things like summer camps than it does in the fall," he continued.

Mark Levin blasts CNN's Wolf Blitzer: 'We know the POTUS isn't a real doctor, just like we know you're not a REAL journalist'

'You know, you're a real A-hole, Wolf'

On Tuesday's "LevinTV," host Mark Levin blasted CNN's Wolf Blitzer for saying President Donald Trump should not "continue to promote" hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus because he isn't a "real doctor."

"You know, you're a real A-hole, Wolf. We know the president of the United States isn't a 'real doctor', just like we know you're not a realjournalist," Mark said. "But there are real doctors who are recommending this [hydroxychloroquine]. It really is outrageous. He [Blitzer] has become very vicious. I would ask him and all of CNN and MSNBC and all the rest of them: If you get this coronavirus, will you now commit to us that you will not take this drug?"

'Progress': Administration claims pandemic inflection point

The Trump administration claimed Tuesday that the coronavirus pandemic that has been spreading like wildfire is showing signs of slowing down.

“There does appear to be evidence of leveling, evidence of progress,” Vice President Mike Pence said at a White House press briefing.

New cases have slowed from 33,000 a day to 29,000 each day, according to Johns Hopkins University data. Some 390,000 people have been infected in the United States as of Tuesday night, and 12,700 have died.

Pence credited social distancing with slowing the spread, calling the latest tallies “glimmers of hope.”

Pelosi Leads Democratic Effort to Use Health Crisis to Change Election Laws

She's at it again. After nearly torpedoing the CARES Act with a farfetched, radical, extreme environmental wish list, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is once again trying to attach her liberal wish list to Phase 4 of Congress's coronavirus relief response. This time Pelosi is focusing in on her plan to usher in mandatory mail-in voting.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Pelosi directly if she would try to change election laws in the wake of the coronavirus. She would.

The provisions the Democrats are asking for, she said, "guarantees to vote from home for upcoming general election." In Phase 4, or CARES 2, she explained, "yes we want the resources to be there and no obstacles to that voting to take place."

"It's about our democracy," she argued, "and a time where it's even a physical challenge to vote."

Spatial Disorientation Found As Cause of 2018 Fatal Plane Crash

OCEAN CITY — A little over two years after a fatal plane crash in the water just off the coast of the Ocean City Airport claimed the life of the pilot and presumably the female passenger, a report released this week suggests spatial disorientation, a phenomenon associated with night flying, was likely the cause.

On Feb. 28, 2018, a Cessna 172S airplane piloted by Marcson Ngwa, 28, of Windsor Mill, Md. accompanied by Benica Richards-Robinson, 28, of Gwynn Oak, Md., went down in the Atlantic Ocean about a mile from the Ocean City Municipal Airport. The following morning, when the rented airplane had not returned to Martin State Airport in Baltimore County where the ill-fated flight originated, a massive search effort was initiated.

On March 1, an oil slick was located about two miles off the coast of the Ocean City Municipal Airport and search efforts were focused there. Late that same day, the plane’s fuselage and a wing were located on the ocean floor below the oil slick and Ngwa’s deceased body was recovered. The search continued off and on over the next two weeks, hampered by back-to-back coastal storms at times. About two weeks later, Maryland State Police investigators announced search and recovery efforts had ended. Richards-Robinson was never recovered and is presumed deceased.

'Now is not the time for blame': Tracy Morgan defends Trump and calls for unity amid coronavirus crisis

Comedian Tracy Morgan said people criticizing President Trump for his response to the outbreak of the coronavirus should instead focus on supporting one another during the time of crisis.

“The struggle is real,” Morgan said Wednesday on the Today show. “People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country got sick. So, it’s difficult for him. We’ve all got to pull together as people, now.”

Morgan continued, "Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger. It’s here now. We just got to be together. We’ve got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So, let's just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do."

Democrats seek to pass $500B plus expanded food stamps in economic relief legislation this week

House and Senate Democrats are demanding Congress approve a $500 billion relief package this week that includes a 15% increase in food stamp benefits.

The request more than doubles the $250 billion in emergency funding sought by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to extend urgent small business aid that is running dry. Democrats want the additional money for healthcare facilities and to help state and local governments.

“The heartbreaking acceleration of the coronavirus crisis demands bold, urgent and ongoing action from Congress to protect Americans’ lives and livelihoods,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement Wednesday. “As Democrats have said since Day One, Congress must provide additional relief for small businesses and families, building on the strong down-payment made in the bipartisan CARES Act.”

High school daughter of slain University of Wisconsin doctor and her husband is pictured for the first time - as it's revealed she was living with the prime suspect and is under investigation for her actions on the night of the murder

These are the first pictures of the high school senior who is at the center of the 'brutal execution' of her adoptive parents.

Mimi Potter Carre, 18, was dating her classmate who is now accused of shooting University of Wisconsin professor Beth Potter and her half-naked husband at point-blank range and leaving them for dead.

Her pictures seem to show that Mimi didn't have a care in the world as she horses around with her brothers, plays with her dog and poses in front of a mirror for a selfie.

But now her world has come crashing down after boyfriend Khari Sanford allegedly killed Dr. Potter — who was helping the university in its response to the coronaviruscrisis — and her husband, educational consultant Robin Carre.

Wait...How Many Doctors Think Hydroxychloroquine Is Effective Against the Wuhan Coronavirus?

So, is it effective? Hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malarial drug that has been reported to be effective against the symptoms of the Wuhan coronavirus. Yet, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and one of President Trump’s top officials working to curb the outbreak in the U.S., has warned against saying this is full proof. He’s a professional. This is a new virus. This drug has not been tested in this regard, butthousands of doctors are saying it works.
In Michigan, Democratic State Representative Karen Whitsett contracted the disease and was given the drug. She said she felt relief from her symptoms in less than two hours. She was aware of hydroxychloroquine due to a recent Lyme’s Disease diagnosis but didn’t know it could be used to treat COVID-19. She credits the drug and President Trump for possibly saving her life.

Jackson and Coker, a healthcare staffing firm, did a survey of 1,200 doctors nationwide and found that 65 percent would prescribe the drug to their family if they were infected with the Wuhan coronavirus, with 67 percent saying they would take the drug themselves:

Governor Hogan Activates Statewide Strike Teams for Nursing Homes, Enacts Order to Shut Down Unsafe Facilities

Tours Field Hospital Site at Baltimore Convention CenterDirects Health Department to Provide Racial and Ethnic Breakdowns on COVID-19 CasesAnnounces Designation of Baltimore-Washington Corridor as Emerging Hotspot by Federal Administration
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today toured the state’s field hospital site at the Baltimore Convention Center, where he announced additional actions to slow the spread of COVID-19. Actions the governor announced today in Baltimore City include:
  • New strike teams to help nursing home facilities in need of additional support
  • A new executive order empowering local health departments to shut down any business, establishment, or construction site it deems unsafe
  • The release of additional demographic breakdowns of Maryland case data, including hospitalization rates and mortality
The governor also announced that the White House and federal officials have now designated the Baltimore-Washington corridor as an emerging hotspot. 

“This virus continues to spread in every single jurisdiction in the state, but the concentration of Maryland cases has rapidly intensified particularly in the Baltimore-Washington corridor,” said Governor Hogan. “Over the past two weeks I have been sounding the alarm with the president, the vice president, members of the president’s task force, and other top administration officials, and I’m pleased to report that we have succeeded in convincing the Trump administration to designate the greater Baltimore-Washington corridor as a priority.”
Below is a comprehensive list of actions and updates the governor announced today:
STRIKE TEAMS FOR NURSING HOMES: Governor Hogan announced the formation of statewide strike teams, the first such effort in the nation, to provide support to nursing home facilities. The teams will be composed of members of the National Guard, representatives of local and state health departments, and EMS clinicians, as well as doctors and nurses from local hospital systems. These strike teams will be activated in response to requests from nursing homes, local health departments, and Maryland Department of Health (MDH) infectious disease experts. There will be three types of teams:
  • Testing teams, to identify those in close contact with a confirmed case, and collect and send out specimens for the fastest test available. 
  • Assistance teams, to quickly assess the situation on-site, determine equipment and supply needs, and triage residents.
  • Clinical teams, which will include doctors, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses from major hospital systems, tasked with providing on-site medical triage and stabilizing residents.
SHUTTING DOWN UNSAFE FACILITIES: Governor Hogan has issued a new executive order empowering local health departments to take action against any businesses, establishments, and construction sites they deem unsafe. The local health department, working with local law enforcement, can modify operations, limit movements to and from the facilities, or shut them down altogether. Read the governor’s order.
BALTIMORE-WASHINGTON CORRIDOR: After weeks of pressing for action, Governor Hogan announced that top federal officials have agreed to designate the greater Baltimore-Washington corridor as a priority and emerging hotspot. This includes Baltimore City and Baltimore County, as well as Anne Arundel, Calvert, Carroll, Charles, Frederick, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Queen Anne’s counties.
RELEASE OF ADDITIONAL DEMOGRAPHIC DATA: Governor Hogan has directed MDH—through the Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities—to immediately take all actions necessary in order to provide further demographic breakdowns on race and ethnicity for all case data, including hospitalization rates and mortality. This week, MDH’s coronavirus resource page, coronavirus.maryland.gov, will begin displaying available data on racial and ethnic breakdown of COVID-19 cases, with updates as new data becomes available.
BALTIMORE CITY EFFORTS: Governor Hogan announced that the state will continue to support Baltimore City’s efforts to fight COVID-19, including the field hospital site, where COVID-19 patients who no longer require hospitalization will be able to complete their care and fully recover. The state will continue to provide support to the Baltimore Police Department as needed, and help stand up the community-based screening site at the Pimlico race course.
HOSPITAL SURGE UPDATE: Governor Hogan provided an update on the state’s hospital surge plan, announcing that the state has—on an emergency basis—approved 27 newly licensed assisting living programs, 42 residential sites for individuals with developmental disabilities, six newly licensed residential service agencies to provide home-based services, and 14 newly licensed clinical laboratories.
MARYLAND UNITES: Governor Hogan also encouraged Marylanders to donate and volunteer through the Maryland Unites initiative, saying, “While social distancing keeps us physically isolated from one another, there are so many examples of how in many ways this crisis is bringing Marylanders closer together with compassion and generosity.” Thousands of Marylanders have already answered the governor’s calls to action by registering for the Maryland Responds Reserve Medical Corps, making appointments to give blood, and donating to the Maryland Food Bank and other critical organizations. 
All of Governor Hogan’s emergency orders and proclamations are available here. For COVID-19 resources, including case counts and clinician guidance, visit coronavirus.maryland.gov

Harris Announces Additional Coronavirus Grants to Eastern Shore

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) announced the award of $3,123,465 in federal grants from the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Funding was provided by the recently enacted CARES Act, also known as the “Phase III” Congressional emergency legislation.

Specifically, three health centers serving the Eastern Shore have been awarded funding:

West Cecil Health Center, Inc - $749,885
Choptank Community Health System, Inc. - $1,068,110
Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc. - $1,305,470

Congressman Harris made the following statement:

“While I had grave concerns about the hundreds of millions of dollars of unrelated spending included in the Phase III Coronavirus emergency response bill, getting this relevant funding to the states and local agencies is critical, and as a physician, I am pleased our local front line rural health centers will soon receive significant financial assistance.”

Manipulation Through Racial Hoaxes

We black people are so convenient and useful to America’s leftists. Whenever there’s a bit of silencing to be done, just accuse a detractor or critic of racism.

A recent, particularly stupid, example is CNN’s Brandon Tensley’s complaint that the “coronavirus task force is another example of Trump administration’s lack of diversity.”

Tensley said the virus experts are “largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who’ve dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning.”

I’d like for Tensley to tell us just what racial or sex diversity contribute to finding a cure or treatment for the coronavirus.

Kennedy Center Strikes Deal to Pay Orchestra

Culture org attempted to cut pay after receiving $25 million bailout

The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has struck a deal with members of the National Symphony Orchestra after attempting to halt salary payments to the musicians.

The organization's decision ignited a furor because it came just hours after President Donald Trump signed a stimulus package that sent the Kennedy Center $25 million. Tuesday's move is an attempt to quell the anger.

The District of Columbia Federation of Musicians, the union that represents the orchestra members, announced to its 96 members on Tuesday morning that it had reached a deal to avoid unpaid furloughs stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. Under the terms of the new agreement, musicians will take a partial pay cut as long as the Kennedy Center remains closed. They will also accept a wage freeze for the remainder of the calendar year.

In exchange for continued pay, the musicians agreed to drop a grievance filed against the Kennedy Center. Orchestra leaders welcomed the development but maintained that the center's actions were illegal.

Chicago Mayor Flouts Stay-At-Home Order to Get Haircut

Democrat Lori Lightfoot told constituents 'getting your roots done' isn't essential

Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot (D.) is on defense after she was spotted getting a haircut, flouting Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker's stay-at-home order that also shut down nonessential businesses like hair salons.

Photos emerged Sunday of Lightfoot getting a trim after the mayor made public service announcements encouraging social distancing and saying activities like "getting your roots done" were not essential.

Lightfoot was flustered Monday when reporters confronted her about the mixed messaging.

"I'm the public face of this city," she said. "I'm on national media and I'm out in the public eye. I take my personal hygiene very seriously. I felt like I needed to have a haircut. I'm not able to do that myself, and so, I got a haircut. You want to talk more about that?"

She said if she did her hair herself, it would be a "disaster" and the media's focus should be on people dying of the virus.

Even amid coronavirus, Democrats keep up their partisan games

America was stirring with opportunity at the beginning of 2017. Disrupter, energizer, and businessman Donald Trump had just been elected president.

After years of Obama-Biden economic malaise, businesses small and large were eager for the Trump economy to restore America to its best, richest self. Markets responded, gaining hundreds of points within days amid record-high trading volume, and a marked uptick in optimism — the knowledge that America’s best days were still to come.

Those heady days were an opportunity to rally together, under the leadership of a non-ideological president who was eager to make deals with our allies, better deals with our adversaries, and honest deals with dishonest politicians in both parties. After all, who could reasonably oppose policies that put America and the American people first?

Jared Kushner sped set up of drive-in virus testing, say officials

With a trademark shrug, Jared Kushner, President Trump’s fixer, has flicked off a wave of criticism for his involvement in the coronavirus war to help speed up the opening of drugstore virus drive-in tests and the collection of millions of N95 masks and ventilators, according to senior administration officials.

Rapped in the media for causing disruption in the multiagency effort, several senior officials involved with the fight on Tuesday gave Kushner credit for clearing a path for government and private industry to team up and solve critical issues.

One key area is the drive-up virus testing long promised but unfulfilled. This week, officials said that Kushner’s push for drive-ups succeeded when CVS opened three and several other drugstore giants followed suit.

The online retailer told customers that the service, Amazon Shipping, will be paused starting in June, according to the Wall Street Journal, which was first to report the change.

Amazon is suspending the service because it needs people and capacity to handle a surge in its own customers’ orders, the Journal reported, citing sources.

“We regularly look at a variety of factors across Amazon to make sure we’re set up in the right way to best serve our customers,” an Amazon spokesperson told Reuters in an email confirming the halt in service.

Wicomico Co. Man Threatening Suicide Fatally Wounded By Troopers During Standoff

(SALISBURY, MD) — Maryland State Police are investigating a trooper-involved shooting that occurred this morning after troopers were called to the home of an armed man allegedly threatening suicide in Wicomico County.

The man is identified as Rick Howell, 59, of the 27000-block of Sunbury Court, Salisbury, Md. He was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency medical services personnel.

The investigation is ongoing and complete details are not known at this time. Information is preliminary and could change as the investigation progresses.

Shortly after 10:00 a.m. today, Maryland state troopers from the Salisbury Barrack were dispatched to the above address after an emergency call was received reporting a suicidal person. The preliminary investigation indicates three uniformed Maryland state troopers found Howell in the back yard of his home and saw he was armed with a handgun.

According to the investigation, troopers repeatedly ordered the man to drop his weapon. They attempted to engage him in a dialogue and told him he did not have to do this. The preliminary investigation indicates that during the confrontation, three troopers fired their weapons.

Medical response was immediately called for and care was provided to the man. Paramedics who arrived on the scene pronounced the man deceased.

State Police investigators have interviewed two family members at the home who said they had contact with the man before troopers were called and he was threatening suicide. Neither those individuals or a child inside the home were injured. No troopers were injured in the incident.

Members of the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit are conducting a criminal investigation, as is procedure in a trooper-involved shooting. Investigators are currently obtaining a search warrant for the residence and will be processing the scene throughout the afternoon with the assistance of State Police crime scene technicians.

Upon completion of the investigation, it will be provided to the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office for review. The Wicomico County State’s Attorney responded to the scene today and was briefed by investigators.

Investigators from the Maryland State Police Internal Affairs Division responded to the scene. As is procedure in a trooper-involved shooting, an investigation will be conducted by the Internal Affairs Division.

The three troopers involved have been placed on administrative leave as the investigation continues. This is procedure whenever a trooper is involved in a shooting.

Additional assistance is being provided by the Maryland State Police Crisis Intervention Team, troopers from the Salisbury Barrack and the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division and investigators from the Criminal Enforcement Division. The investigation is continuing.

CAN GYMS CLOSED BY PANDEMIC KEEP BILLING MEMBERS?

State law prohibits health clubs that are closed for longer than a month during the COVID-19 pandemic from billing members who pay month-to-month, the office of Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh said.

For members with contracts of at least three months, gyms, health clubs, fitness centers and self-defense schools must either extend contracts for the equivalent time of the closure or provide prorated refunds.

“Additionally, Fitness Centers cannot require that members proactively take action to freeze their membership or charge freeze fees as a result of the mandated closures,” a statement from Frosh’s office said.

All gyms, health clubs, fitness centers and self-defense schools in the state have been closed to the public since March 16 due to the COVID-19 crisis. Gov. Larry Hogan’s stay-at-home executive order mandated that Marylanders stay at home and closed all non-essential businesses.

Programs adapt to feed hungry in Maryland during pandemic

OLNEY, Md. — Government programs, food banks and nonprofit organizations aiding people who struggle to put food on the table have had to adapt to the novel coronavirus pandemic, and they say stress levels have moved beyond typical levels.

As more Marylanders encounter food insecurity, schools, nonprofits and others must figure out a way to get more food to more people, but with less staff and safety concerns hampering their ability to do so.

Organizations must weigh the possibility that volunteers and staff who are handling food could transmit or acquire the virus.

Trump Installs Ejection Seats Throughout Press Briefing Room

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Trump excitedly unveiled his latest improvements to the White House Press Briefing Room at Monday night's press conference: ejection seats.

Controlled by a panel on Trump's podium, the ejection seats allow him to instantly send any White House reporter on a free trip to somewhere a few hundred yards down Pennsylvania Avenue. Any journalist parroting Chinese propaganda, insulting the president, or asking a question without referring to Trump as "His Majesty Donald Trump May He Live Forever" is likely to get a free flight courtesy of the White House.

"Mr. President, why do you hate AmericaaaaaaaaAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!" screamed one reporter as Trump solemnly pressed a button and sent her rocketing through the roof. Stunned journalists stared in shock at their colleague soaring hundreds of feet into the air. They were speechless, which was a "welcome change" according to sources.

Democrat Muriel Bowser said that roughly 93,000 people could contract COVID-19 in the city, according to model projection city officials are relying on.

Included in the projection are people who have tested positive for the virus but have since recovered, the Washington Post reports.

Car insurance companies will give customers back $800 million in premiums because no one is driving during coronavirus shutdowns

Major U.S. car insurance companies say they will return at least $800 million in premiums over the next few months because Americans are driving much less due to stay-at-home orders aimed at curbing the coronavirus outbreak.

Allstate Corp, one of the largest U.S. auto insurers, said on Monday that most customers will receive a 'payback' of 15 percent of their monthly premium in April and May, totaling about $600 million.

'Given an unprecedented decline in driving, customers will receive a Shelter-in-Place Payback,' said Allstate CEO Tom Wilson. 'This is fair because less driving means fewer accidents.'

I Drive A Vehicle Tagged In Delaware But Have A Maryland Drivers License


Let's get real people. I'm in the news business. I'd like/love to see the Daily Times expose their traffic like we do, proving we are so much bigger than WBOC, WMDT and the DT's. IF they came anywhere close to our numbers they'd gladly do so. Instead they make excuses as to why they refuse to show people their numbers SUCK.

That being said, I'm considered essential. As for my driving around taking pictures of cars in parking lots while I'm supposedly to shelter in place, I'm in a vehicle, stupid.

Now, when I do in fact go shopping when necessary I am well prepared and protected, and because we are responsible, YOU'RE PROTECTED TOO! My Wife took this picture of me last night in fact. I'm NOT in Virginia, New Jersey or New York spreading my germs carelessly exposing them completely disregarding and disrespecting the LAW coughing and spreading my germs without gloves and a mask. 

So to those negative people trying to personally attack me, BITE ME! 

P.S., As for my Delaware Tags, you people know I own multiple homes. My Wife has a DE license and I have a MD license. We have multiple cars that are ALL legally tagged. 

Donald Trump Gets Millions of Hydroxychloroquine Pills from India

President Donald Trump persuaded India’s prime minister to release many millions of hydroxychloroquine pills on April 6 after the Indian government had announced it would keep all of the pills for its own population of almost 1.5 billion people.

“I called Prime Minister Modi of India this morning … and I said I’d appreciate it if they would release the amounts that we ordered,” Trump told reporters April 4, adding:
They make large amounts of hydroxychloroquine — very large amounts, frankly. They had a hold [on exports], because, you know, they have 1.5. billion people, and they think a lot of it. And I said I’d appreciate it if they would release the amounts that we ordered …

Fact Check: Trump Does Not Own Stake in a Hydroxychloroquine Drugmaker

Claim: “Donald Trump Has Stake In Hydroxychloroquine Drugmaker: Report”

That’s the headline across a HuffPost story that goes on to claim that “President Donald Trump reportedly owns a stake in a company that produces hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug he has repeatedly touted as a coronavirus treatment even though his experts say there’s no strong evidence it works.”

Verdict: False.

The report cited by the HuffPost is from a New York Times story that said: “Trump himself has a small personal financial interest in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine.”

Welcome Illegally To Home Depot In Berlin Maryland




Moments ago I went to Home Depot after receiving a call that I wouldn't believe how many out of state vehicles are in the parking lot. Mind you, there were a ton of Delaware tags there as well and as my next post will show you, WalMart was just as bad. 

You have to wonder where the State Police are. Some of us have been doing our job self quarantining voluntarily and it shouldn't take JOE CITIZEN to have to police our neighborhoods to perhaps save our own lives from others dragging in this virus illegally.

Xi Jinping: China to EXPAND Pharmaceutical Monopoly

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping told fellow G20 leaders in a tele-conferenced speech on Thursday that China intends to increase its manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to “keep global financial markets stable.”

Xi demanded that the rest of the world help keep the world’s markets — currently monopolized by the Chinese Communist Party — “stable” amid growing demands that countries reconsider having nearly all their necessary goods sourced from the communist regime. Extensive reporting out of Wuhan, the origin city of the current pandemic, has conclusively determined that communist censorship and repression of individuals seeking to share basic health tips to prevent spreading a contagious disease significantly amplified the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

One study blamed China for as many as 95 percent of the world’s known coronavirus cases.

“We need to better coordinate financial regulation to keep global financial markets stable. We need to jointly keep the global industrial and supply chains stable,” Xi said. “What China will do in this regard is to increase its supply of active pharmaceutical ingredients, daily necessities, and anti-epidemic and other supplies to the international market.”

Sanders suspends presidential campaign, rendering Biden presumptive Democratic nominee

Bernie Sanders has suspended his Democratic presidential campaign -- all but handing the nomination to former Vice President Joe Biden.

The senator from Vermont initially announced the decision during an all-staff conference call Wednesday morning, and followed up with a formal livestreamed address to supporters shortly before noon.

Citing Biden’s lead of over 300 convention delegates, Sanders declared: “The path toward victory is virtually impossible.”

He continued: “I have concluded that this battle for the Democratic nomination will not be successful. ... I do not make this decision lightly.”

Calling it a "difficult and painful decision," Sanders stressed that "while this campaign is coming to an end, our movement is not."

Judicial Watch: State/DOJ Tells Appeals Court It Should Reject Clinton Effort to Avoid Testimony

Judicial Watch has announced that it and the State Department, which is represented by Justice Department lawyers, filed responses opposing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills’ Writ of Mandamus request to overturn a U.S. District Court order requiring their testimony under oath regarding Clinton’s emails and Benghazi attack records.

At the same time, the government argued that it did not engage in “bad faith” in failing to disclose the Clinton non-government email system to Judicial Watch and the court. The briefs were filed on April 3 with the U.S. Appeals Court for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Judicial Watch argues that Clinton and Mills “must demonstrate that they have no other adequate means of relief,” which they failed to show. Also, Clinton and Mills do not demonstrate “that the District Court’s order was a judicial usurpation of power or a clear abuse of discretion, or that [Clinton and Mills] have a clear and indisputable right to a writ.” In fact, “the District Court reasonably concluded that Clinton’s previous explanations for using a personal email server are cursory, incomplete, and seemingly at odds with what discovery has yielded to date.”

Judicial Watch further argues that Clinton and Mills are trying to avoid their deposition testimony by relying on, “their status as former high-level government officials.” Clinton and Mills, “do not offer a single case from this Court or any other, holding that former high-level government officials should not be required to follow regular appellate channels to challenge a discovery order.” Particularly in Mills’ case, Judicial Watch notes that they, “identify no case in which a court entertained a mandamus petition to stop the deposition of even a sitting cabinet member’s chief of staff.”

The Trump-haters are chronically addicted to their rage

As anyone who has been watching the daily press briefings about the virus knows, the duplicitous non-journalists in the room are not one bit interested in actual facts or any good news about the virus, hydroxychloroquine, or medical equipment supplies, or any other information that may be gleaned about the administration's war against this flu. They are driven only by their hatred for this president, who has risen to the challenge as a true leader.

President Trump put the medical and scientific task force together early on, when the left was paying attention to and reporting only on the impeachment. He banned travelers from China when the Democrats and media called him a racist for implementing the ban, and he started screening passengers from all over the world.

We see the reporters' ill mannered disrespect throughout the mainstream media, network television, on CNN and MSNBC. No one can miss the truth of the left's plan: we can use this virus to destroy the economy and the country, and that will be the end of Trump.

But it won't. A majority of Americans can see for themselves that he has handled this crisis like a pro at problem-solving. Trump is exactly that — a problem-solver, no matter the magnitude of the problem.

ESSENTIAL WORKERS WOULD GET UP TO $25,000 BOOST UNDER SENATE DEMOCRATS' NEW 'HEROES FUND' STIMULUS

Senate Democrats unveiled a proposal Tuesday that would boost the pay of essential workers on the frontlines of the battle against the coronavirus pandemic by potentially tens of thousands of dollars.

As much as $25,000 in hazard pay would be afforded over a period of time to those deemed essential, including employees in health care, drug stores, grocery stores, sanitation workers, truck drivers, transportation workers and all federal employees with frontline positions, such as Postal Service workers.

"Not all heroes wear capes," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters on a conference call Tuesday. "For these Americans, working from home is not an option. Social distancing is not an option."

The raise would be equivalent to $13 per hour and would apply retroactively from the start of the health crisis emergency on January 27 until the end of the year, Schumer said.

Report: Wuhan Funeral Homes Burned Coronavirus Victims Alive

Locals in Wuhan, where the Chinese coronavirus pandemic originated, have heard screams coming from funeral home furnaces, and some treated in hospitals say they saw workers put living coronavirus patients in body bags, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported on Monday.

RFA noted that it could not independently verify that the Chinese Communist Party was burning coronavirus patients alive, nor has the Communist Party confirmed or denied the rumors. Yet the rumors persist that, to make room for new patients in Wuhan’s overcrowded hospitals, medical staff chose older patients less likely to survive the infection and shipped them to incinerators while they were still alive and conscious.

RFA quoted a source “close to the funeral industry” identified only as Ma who said that he had heard reports of “people restrained and forced into body bags when they were still moving.”

“Some people are saying that … there are video clips of screams coming from funeral homes, from inside the furnaces … which tells us that some people were taken to the funeral homes while they were still alive,” Ma added.

'It's very sad': Fauci warns blacks disproportionately affected by coronavirus

White House coronavirus task force member Anthony Fauci said Tuesday that blacks are disproportionately at risk from the coronavirus due to high rates of diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and asthma.

"When you look at the predisposing conditions that lead to a bad outcome with coronavirus ... they are just those very comorbidities that are unfortunately disproportionately prevalent in the African American population," Fauci said during Tuesday's White House press briefing.

In Chicago, for instance, about 68% of the city’s 118 deaths and 52% of the estimated 5,000 cases have involved blacks, who make up only about 30% of Chicago’s total population, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"We're very concerned about that. It's very sad," Fauci said. "There's nothing we can do about it right now except to try to give them the best possible care to avoid those complications."

You Just Can't Make This Up

Americans are suffering, losing work, fighting loneliness, and in need of food and healthcare, but AOC wants us to believe that the COVID-19 virus is racist.

Outer Banks property owners file federal suit challenging restrictions to their homes

Six Outer Banks property owners have filed a federal lawsuit against Dare County claiming their constitutional rights have been violated by an emergency order preventing access to their homes.

The suit, filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for Eastern North Carolina, was brought by John P. Bailey, Paul W. Michael Jr., his wife Sheryl S. Michael, E. Thompson Brown, Todd A. Edgar and his wife Babette S. Edgar.

The Michaels and Brown, who live in Virginia, use their properties in Dare County as second homes, while Bailey and the Edgars use their homes as rentals. Bailey lives in South Carolina and the Edgars in Maryland.

“This action is brought by plaintiffs who seek to protect their right to travel, to engage in a common calling or occupation, and to obtain medical treatment as is guaranteed to them as citizens of the United States” by the U.S. Constitution, the suit reads.

On March 20, the Dare County Control Group — a multi-jurisdictional policy-making body that assumes a leadership role for the entire county during emergencies — amended a March 17 emergency declaration restricting visitor access to include non-resident property owners. Law-enforcement checkpoints have been established at both bridges into Dare County to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The coronavirus can live on a surgical mask for 7 days, cloth for 2 days, and paper for 3 hours. Here's how to disinfect surfaces properly.

How long the coronavirus could survive on surfaces

The researchers behind the new study tested the virus' lifespan in a 71-degree Fahrenheit room at 65% relative humidity. After three hours, the virus had disappeared from printing and tissue paper. It took two days for it to leave from wood and cloth fabric. After four days, it was no longer detectable on glass or paper money. It lasted longest, seven days, on stainless steel and plastic.

Strikingly, the authors wrote, of all the materials they tested, the coronavirus lasted longest on the outer layer of a surgical mask. On day seven of their investigation, the virus was still present on the outward facing side of the mask.

A Viewer Writes: SALISBURY NURSING HOME

Why aren’t patient’s imprisoned at Salisbury Rehabilitation and Nursing Center/Salisbury Genesis Eldercare, located at the corner of Route 50 and Civic Avenue, being told the truth? 

Patient’s and the family of patients deserve to know the truth! And it needs to happen now! COVID is at Salisbury Nursing Home, and it is being spread. If a really large outbreak does happen in that nursing home, it will singlehandedly exhaust the entire healthcare infrastructure for the entire bottom half of the Delmarva peninsula. 

Salisbury Nursing Home is known to be the BIGGEST nursing home in Maryland with over 300 beds. That’s more beds than all of Peninsula Regional Medical Center; even with their temporary tent hospital added in. 

We understand that PRMC owns this facility, so it’s quite OBVIOUS that they are trying to sweep this problem under the rug, and the Wicomico County Health Department is helping them. They are all in each other’s pockets.

Why isn’t Larry Hogan ordering facilities to be transparent? Send Larry an email now! These people are our most vulnerable of citizens. These patients are our parents, our grandparents, our aunts, our uncles, our brothers, and our sisters. They do not deserve the run around, they’ve earned the right to be told the truth.

TELL US THE TRUTH! How are our loved ones being treated? What steps are being taken to mitigate this emerging crisis? Is the staff truly safe? I guarantee you that the staff at Salisbury Nursing Home does not have the same protective equipment being used by PRMC. Why? PRMC is financially invested in Salisbury Nursing Home as owners. I don’t want them to kill my grandmother. She is my rock!

Also, for those who find themselves in a hospital, and then they find that you are in need of a nursing home, the hospital ALWAYS recommends that someone pick Salisbury Nursing Home for their loved one. I guarantee they never ever tell them about their financial stakes. I also can promise you that they aren’t telling family’s about the COVID cases there. If they do come clean, they’ll say all COVID patients are isolated to one unit, but that’s not true. PRMC still cannot do testing, so they will never know what residents or staff are positive, and the virus will continue to spread in the nursing home.

Nationalism vs. Globalism

Written by Dr. James Veltmeyer, a prominent La Jolla physician voted “Top Doctor” in San Diego County in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2019. 

TRUMP: EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER

The ongoing attacks by the political establishment on President Donald Trump –which began even before he was elected – are without parallel in history. The savagery, frenzy, and outright hysteria displayed by the President’s enemies within the Democrat Party, the media, and the various power centers of theglobalist elites have no prior precedent.

This President has been spied on, lied about, made the subject of phony foreign dossiers, insulted, ridiculed, scorned, mocked and threatened. We have witnessed Hollywood celebrities advocate for blowing up the White House, demand the President be jailed and his children abused.

We have seen politicians in Washington try to convict the President of non-existent crimes, investigate him and his family members for everything from tax returns to guests at his hotels, project on to him crimes that they themselves have committed, and seed his Administration with leakers and double-agents.

No other President in American history has been treated in such a shameful manner. Not Lincoln. Not FDR. Not Nixon. Not Reagan. What is it about this President that has roused such demons in his political foes? What is it about this President that drives his opponents to the brink of insanity ? That so terrifies and terrorizes the Pelosi’s, Schiff’s, Schumer’s and the George Soros’?

Is it simply that he is not part of the club, a brash outsider with a different style? Is it merely because he’s outspoken and tramples on political correctness? Is it because he’s sometimes unpresidential in his demeanor (at least in their minds)? Not at all. After all, aren’t these the same folks who loved Bill Clinton whose extracurricular activities involved cigars and staining blue dresses in the Oval Office?

Of course, Clinton was beloved by the globalist elites who pull the strings on world governments. He gave them NAFTA, after all. He gave them the WTO. He made tens of billions of dollars for them and their stockholders through these unfair trade deals that cost America five million manufacturing jobs and closed 70,000 factories. He also gave the military-industrial complex plenty of profit-making military interventions, from Haiti to Bosnia to Serbia and Iraq Bill Clinton, for all his corruption, delivered the goods for the New World Order.

Donald Trump, of course, never played ball with these globalists. He was elected explicitly on an anti-globalist platform that put America first. From day one, he started to implement that America-first agenda, earning him the undying enmity of all those whose profits are secured by selling out American workers, American jobs, and America’s national sovereignty. President Trump pulled us out of the TPP. Billions in lost profits for the globalists. President Trump pulled us out of the job-destroying Paris Climate Accords. Billions in lost profits for foreign nations like Communist China, at our expense. President Trump began the process of securing the U.S. border. Billions in lost cheap illegal immigrant labor for the Business Roundtable.

President Trump imposed tariffs on China, becoming the first President ever to address Beijing’s annual $500 billion rape of our economy. Billions in lost profits for corporations who ship our jobs to one of the worst tyrannies on the planet. President Trump renegotiated NAFTA. Again, billions in lost profits for the cheap labor crowd, President Trump launched the process of extricating the U.S. from endless foreign wars and avoiding new wars with nations like Iran and North Korea. Billions –perhaps trillions – in lost profits for the globalist war machine.

Is the picture becoming a little clearer? In each instance, the President’s policies have represented a dramatic upending of the globalist agenda of both parties, the Carter-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama agendas of continuous war and the continuous looting of America’s wealth and hollowing out of the American middle class. With both parties and their representatives in Congress beholden to campaign donors whose profits are threatened by Trump’s America-first initiatives, is it no wonder thatboth Democrats and Never-Trump Republicans, all Globalist-Socialist, are determined to bring this President down?

Most of the mass media is controlled by these same global corporations. After all, doesn’t Amazon’s Jeff Bezos—the richest man in the world – own the Washington Post? As was said in Watergate, just follow the money. And while you’re following the money—see if it leads to a $500 million left-wing slush fund run by a shadowy Soros and Clinton linked group called Arabella Advisors, which is funding the anti-Trump political agenda through dozens of high-sounding front groups.

The New World Order gang is in full retreat all over the globe. From Brexit in the UK, to the populist governments of Hungary and Poland, to the Yellow Vest movement in France, and Salvini in Italy, the middle and working classes are demanding the overthrow of their nation-destroying overlords. The overlords who have flooded their countries with unassailable immigrants from North Africa and surrendered their sovereignty to the European Union and its unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels. Theyhave lived the unfulfilled promises of the globalists, that giving up national sovereignty and relocating jobs abroad would usher in a new era of peace and prosperity. The exact opposite has happened. The globalist vision has resulted in $7 trillion of pointless wars in the Middle East, an immigration crisis, the loss of jobs, and declining standards of living.

In the United States, Donald J. Trump has emerged as the New World Order’s most tenacious and determined foe as he fights the good fight for the American people, our constitutional rights and liberties and the sovereignty of our nation. He is an existential threat to the New World Order. Unlike other Republican presidents of the recent past, he can’t be bought and has no price. Unlike them, he doesn’t give in, and he doesn’t give up.

The impeachment games. The Senate trials. After three years of trying to prevent the Electoral College from voting for Trump, stopping the inauguration, unleashing Jim Comey and the FBI, CIA spying, Robert Mueller and his phony Russia - gate probe, tax returns, emoluments, Kavanaugh, and all the rest -- the patience of the American public seems to be wearing thin. We aren’t as stupid as they think.

America is the Exception in this world! It was designed by our Founding Fathers to be so!
