Connecticut fines residents $3,000 for violating coronavirus travel advisory

NEW YORK - Connecticut says it has issued its first $3,000 in fines to a pair of residents who failed to comply with the state’s new coronavirus travel advisory.

Gov. Ned Lamont announced Monday that the individuals were both hit with $1,000 fines for failing to fill out public health forms when they flew back weeks ago from Louisiana and Florida – two states that are reporting higher numbers of daily confirmed cases. One of those residents was fined an additional $1,000 after his co-worker informed officials he was refusing to self-quarantine for 14 days as required under the restrictions, he added.


FDA denies Michigan Hospital request to treat Patient w Hydroxychloroquine

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has denied a 2-month-old request from Henry Ford Health System seeking approval for emergency use authorization to use hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients.

The Detroit-area hospital’s July 6 request to use the anti-malaria drug on a segment of patients “meeting very specific criteria” was denied this week, Dr. Adnan Munkarah, the system’s executive vice president and chief clinical officer, confirmed in a statement Thursday, Aug. 13.


WH Deputy: Trump looking to Boost US Made Products

The White House is looking at a number of ways to boost American-made products and reshore vital industries to the United States from abroad, special assistant to President Trump for domestic policy Theo Wold says.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Wold said the president is “looking at a number of things that we can do within the law” to better inform American consumers about where products and goods are made.


Why are the Democrats are insisting on more Mail-in ballots

Hint: It has NOTHING to do with COVID-19

Democrats continue to accuse President Donald Trump of planning to rig the 2020 election, while simultaneously pushing for a voting system that's been racked with fraud for decades, Glenn Beck argued on his radio program.

"The Democrats are now talking about the election being stolen ... they're talking about how the president is trying to use the postmaster general to stop the election and all of the absentee ballots that are going out.... And they're saying now he is working again with Russia," Glenn said.

"They're setting us up. Anything the Democrats say they are doing — and I know you know if you've been paying attention — that whatever they say Trump is doing, they are doing," he continued. "They're saying that Trump is ... going to contest if he doesn't win. Those are all the things they are going to do."

Glenn explained that hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots have been deemed fraudulent in New York alone and voting officials are still counting votes from the primary season.


Nuclear Research Lab Sends White Males To Taxpayer Funded White Guilt Conference

A federally funded nuclear and engineering research lab whisked away all their privileged F***ING WHITE MALES in leadership roles and sent them on a luxurious tax payer funded vacation so they could grovel in their guilt. Christopher Rufo broke the story, which centers around Sandia National Laboratories:


Coronavirus updates: CDC predicts death toll could reach 200,000 by Labor Day

(NEW YORK) — The novel coronavirus has now killed more than 753,000 people worldwide. Over 20.9 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governmentsare hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.


Democide: Understanding the State’s Monopoly on Violence and the Second Amendment

Gun control is predicated on the belief that private citizens cannot be trusted with firearms. That the state should have a "monopoly on violence" because it is less violent than individuals. And that firearms should be taken away from private citizens because only the state is responsible enough to handle them.

There is, however, a major problem with this: States are statistically far more violent than individuals. After all, in the 20th century alone, 262 MILLION people died at the hands of their own governments.

The term for this sort of atrocity is “democide.” It is one of the reasons the Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment in the U.S. Constitution – toallow citizens some form of protection against agents of a tyrannical government meaning to do them harm, as the Founders were forcibly disarmed as colonists by the British prior to the American Revolution.
What Is Democide?

Democide is the murder of any person or people by their government. It’s an important concept, as it is more expansive than the better-known term genocide. While the largest genocide in history is widely thought to be the Holocaust, Adolf Hitler’s work pales in comparison to that of Josef Stalin or Mao Zedong. In fact, one aspect of Stalin’s terror was the “Holodomor,” the intentional mass starvation of Ukrainians, which killed over seven million victims in less than two years (compared to six million Jews over the four years of the Holocaust).

Ex-FBI Resistance Lawyer To Plead Guilty In Durham's Trump-Russia Probe

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith will plead guilty to one count of making a false statement regarding his involvement in the agency's actions against the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election, according to the Associated Press.

In November, the New York Times revealed that Clinesmith was under criminal investigation for allegedly doctoring materials used to obtain renewals of the Carter Page surveillance warrant. Clinesmith -who worked on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russia probe, was part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, and interviewed Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos.


Atlanta DA who charged officer with murder in the Rayshard Brooks case just lost his reelection bid

Democratic challenger Fani Willis wins runoff election

Voters in Georgia have ousted Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard — who charged two officers with murder in the Rayshard Brooks shooting earlier this summer — by a whopping 45-point margin.

Howard, a 20-plus-year incumbent and the first black district attorney elected in Georgia, lost his post to Democratic challenger Fani Willis in a runoff election Tuesday, WAGA-TV reported. Willis garnered 73% of the vote in a commanding victory over her former boss.

Howard conceded the race late Wednesday night saying, "I came in with pride and I'm leaving with pride," according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Willis vowed to bring "transparency and accountability" to the district attorney's office.


'Moderate' Kamala Harris Just Cosponsored Climate Legislation with AOC

Harris was ranked the 'most liberal' senator of 2019 by congressional watchdog

Sen. Kamala Harris cosponsored a climate bill with far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) just days before mainstream media outlets labeled the California Democrat a "moderate."

Harris on August 6 unveiled the Climate Equity Act with Ocasio-Cortez, which promises to "boldly address the climate crisis" by tackling "environmental racism." Some far-left groups lauded the legislation as setting the stage to eventually pass the Green New Deal, the freshman Democrat's $94 trillion overhaul of the economy and environmental policies.

Just days after Harris teamed up with Ocasio-Cortez, a number of prominent media outlets touted her status as a centrist Democrat following her selection as Joe Biden's running mate. TheNew York Times called Harris a "pragmatic moderate." A Washington Post political columnist labeled her a "small-c conservative." The Associated Press referred to her "relatively centrist record," and ABC's George Stephanopoulos said Harris "comes from the middle of the road, moderate wing of the Democratic party."


Yale Discriminates Against Asian, White Applicants, Justice Department Says

The Department of Justice has concluded that Yale University unlawfully discriminates against Asian and white applicants in its admissions process.

Eric Dreiband, the assistant attorney general for the DOJ's civil rights division, wrote in a letter Thursday that a federal probe showed race was a "predominate criteria" that dictated many admissions decisions at Yale. The department warned that it could sue the university if it continues to use race in admissions for the upcoming year.

The government's inquiry, which began in 2018 and is based on Yale's own data, shows that Asian and white applicants are significantly less likely to be admitted than students from "preferred racial groups" with similar qualifications.

"Yale’s race discrimination imposes undue and unlawful penalties on racially-disfavored applicants, including in particular Asian American and White applicants," Dreiband wrote. "For the great majority of applicants, Asian American and White applicants have only one-tenth to one-fourth of the likelihood of admission as African American applicants with comparable academic credentials."

The Department also accused Yale of racially engineering its admitted classes, saying the racial composition of its student body has been "remarkably stable for approximately the last decade."


War Memorial Blasts Amy McGrath for 'Prohibited' Campaign Rally

McGrath did not clear campaign rally with memorial

A war memorial in Kentucky admonished Democratic Senate candidate Amy McGrath for holding a campaign event at the site, saying, "political rallies have never been allowed."

Staff members at the Greenup County War Memorial immediately rebuked the Kentucky Democrat for exploiting the site for political purposes. Just hours after McGrath's Wednesday event, leaders said in a Facebook post the memorial "is a place to remember and celebrate veterans."

"It is not affiliated [with], nor does it support any political candidates or parties. Any political rallies are prohibited on the War Memorial property," officials said.

According to the Facebook post, McGrath did not contact the memorial prior to the event, which was held Wednesday afternoon.

"Political rallies are not allowed, and have never been allowed. We did not have prior knowledge of her coming or we would have told her prior to arrival that she could not hold a political rally at the memorial, as we have told other political parties," the post said.


Wannabe Tough Guy Attacks Hotel Employee Over Temperature Check, Gets The Tar Beat Out Of Him

There’s something about the swift fist of justice that just makes you smile your biggest smile.

Like when this would-be hotel guest threw an absolute fit about getting his temperature checked before entering the hotel. After all, there’s this little global pandemic going around and temperature checks have become pretty routine. Hell, I got my head scanned to get a cheeseburger the other day.

Anyways, tough guy almost leaves, but then has a sudden change of heart, goes full psycho and start picking up things to throw at our EXTREMELY patient hotel employee.

He takes a stanchion to the chest (ouch), a whole bottle of sanitizer to the ribs (again, ouch), and finally, would-be guest decides it’s time to drop the gloves and chuck knucks, you know… really see what hotel clerks are made of these days.


Hotel guy takes a page out of the ol’ Bob Probert playbook, pulls the jacket over the head and rains down some vicious rights upside his head. His girl walks in (in no hurry whatsoever) and gets the guy out of there before his face can get rearranged completely.

Like I said, the swift fist of justice.


Mainstream media blackout 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant murder

Why is there a media blackout on the execution killing of the 5-year-old boy who was innocently riding his bicycle?

Major news networks have not reported on the atrocious of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant. The blackout of coverage on the murder of the young boy has sparked the hashtag #SayHisName on Twitter.

As reported at TheBlaze, Cannon Hinnant was riding his bicycle in front of his father's house in North Carolina early Sunday evening. That's when Darius N. Sessoms allegedly walked up to the boy, put a gun to his head, and executed him. Then Sessoms, a 25-year-old convicted felon, fled to his home next door in the town of Wilson.

The gruesome murder was reportedly witnessed by Hinnant's 7-year-old and 8-year-old sisters, as well as neighbor Doris Labrant.



On July 27, 2020, the Honorable S. James Sarbanes, Administrative Judge of the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, sentenced Christopher Wolcott, 30 years of age, of Salisbury, Maryland, to twelve (12) years active incarceration in the Maryland Division of Corrections, and three (3) years of supervised probation. Wolcott entered a guilty plea to assault first degree immediately preceding his sentencing. 

On November 12, 2019, Christopher Wolcott attacked the victim in a homeless encampment in Salisbury, slashing the victim’s face several times with a utility knife following an earlier physical confrontation. The victim suffered lacerations to his face requiring multiple sutures and staples to repair and prolonged hospitalization for treatment in aid of recovery. The Maryland State Police investigated the case and collected evidence that linked Wolcott to the crime. 

Wicomico County State’s Attorney (SA) Jamie Dykes commended Sgt. J. Pruitt, the lead investigator, and other Troopers from the Maryland State Police for their work in the investigation. SA Dykes also commended Special Investigator M. Daugherty of the State’s Attorney’s Office and Senior Assistant State’s Attorney D. Scott Messersmith, who prosecuted the case, for their efforts.


On August 11, 2020, the Honorable Matthew Maciarello, Associate Judge of the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, sentenced Derrick Ryan Richardson, 32 years of age, of Parsonsburg, Maryland, to twenty-five (25) years active incarceration in the Maryland Division of Corrections, and five (5) years of supervised probation. 

Richardson entered a guilty plea to one count of armed carjacking and two counts of attempted carjacking immediately preceding his sentencing. On the morning of September 9, 2019, Richardson attempted to carjack two separate motor vehicles near his residence.

At his third attempt, Richardson was successful stopping a 2009 Chevrolet Impala, he then ordered the female driver out at gunpoint. After she exited, Richardson entered the vehicle and he drove off. 

Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) deputies responded and conducted an investigation that led to the recovery of crucial evidence, to include video footage of Richardson driving the stolen Impala. Three days after the carjacking, the stolen Impala was recovered in the woods approximately 1000 feet from Richardson’s home. 

Wicomico County State’s Attorney (SA) Jamie Dykes commended Det. C. Kirkpatrick of the WCSO Criminal Investigation Division, the lead investigator on the case, and other members of the WCSO and the Maryland State Police, for their work in the investigation. SA Dykes also commended Senior Assistant State’s Attorney D. Scott Messersmith, who prosecuted the case.

Florida girl’s mother shot and killed during first day of online class as teacher watches, police say

Officials said a bullet struck the student's computer while in a ZOOM call with her class

A 10-year-old Florida girl was beginning her first day of online school when her mother was shot to death by her ex-boyfriend at their home, investigators said Tuesday.

Donald Williams, 27, shot and killed 32-year-old Maribel Rosado Morales in front of her four children and their two cousins at her Indiantown home, Martin County Sheriff William Snyder told reporters at a press conference, which was recorded by WPEC-TV.

The shooting unfolded during an argument after Williams entered the home around 8 a.m. and confronted Rosado Morales about an online video, Snyder said. Williams shot her multiple times and fled the home.


The 'Silent Majority' Is Roaring For Trump, But the Media Ignores Them Completely

If one were to believe wholeheartedly in the America portrayed by social media and cable news, they would think that President Trump is loathed by most of the country and Joe Biden is looking at guaranteed victory in November.

News outlets have focused heavily on stories of civil unrest, protests, and looting in the past few months, framing a nation on the precipice of total fracture. Stories flood front pages about major cities voting to defund their own police department, even as murders and other violent crimes spike.

Each day, President Trump's words to the press and on social media are dissected and found wanting by his detractors. A daily snapshot of "trending topics" on Twitter shows a nation disgusted with their leader and the waning number of people who support him.


WATCH: Democrats Threatened Backlash If Biden Didn’t Choose A Black Woman For Vice President (VIDEO)

Democrat operatives have threatened backlash against Joe Biden and if he does not select a Black woman for his vice presidential running mate.

These are some statements people said, “Vice President Biden. You need us. You owe us.”

“America needs a black woman Vice President. Candidates like Amy Klobuchar will not energize us. America needs a black woman Supreme Court Justice.”

A field director for Richland County Democratic Party in South Carolina shares her thoughts on Biden picking a woman of color, “Well, you know, that’s been an interesting question and a lot of conversations surrounding that decision that Joe Biden made himself. You know, it was he himself who came out and said that his V.P. pick was going to be a woman and it was going to be a woman of color. And so it’s exciting. You know, while we’re all anticipating who that person is going to be. And we have a wealth of qualified candidates for him to choose from.”


Kamala Harris: Young People Are ‘Stupid’ — ‘They Make Really Bad Decisions’

Cable news pundits claimed on Tuesday night that Kamala Harris could help to motivate young voters, but a speech from 2014 may prove to make that objective more difficult.

During a speech to the Ford Foundation, the then-California Attorney General used young people as a punchline, saying they are “stupid” and that’s why they have to live with resident assistants in dormitories.

Harris was talking about drug offenders in the criminal justice system during her time as the San Francisco District Attorney and said, “What’s the other thing we know about this population? And it’s a specific phase of life. And remember, age is more than a chronological fact. What else do we know about this population, 18 through 24? They are stupid.”

The audience burst into laughter. The camera cut to one woman, though, who didn’t appear amused.

“That is why we put them in dormitories, and they have a resident assistant,” Harris continued.

“They make really bad decisions.”

During a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC, Dr. Jason Johnson said, Harris’s “challenge going forward, what the Democratic Party needs, they need somebody who’s going to make young people enthusiastic.”


OC Air Show: What You Need to Know

The OC Air Show is August 15-16, and visitors should expect many changes due to Covid-19. The show still promises to be exciting, but organizers are getting extra creative to ensure the safety of all patrons.

No Show Center or Premium Viewing Areas on the Beach

Event organizers originally planned to welcome patrons to the drop zone beach, flight line club, and sand boxes. These areas are closed. There will not be a public address system or a parachute landing zone. Plans to have patrons in these areas and the Show Center were approved by the local health department. However, on July 31, organizers and the Town of Ocean City were alerted by the state’s Attorney General’s Office and the Maryland State Police that the plans violated the current Covid-19 restrictions.

Brian Lilley, who serves as Chairman of the OC Air Show, spoke publicly to the Ocean City Mayor and Council about the projected revenue loss due to this last-minute change. Lilley estimated that the shortfall would be approximately $202,400. He asked members of the council to vote in favor of an additional $100,000 in funding, on top of the $35,000 they already provide each year. The council voted unanimously to approve the expenditure. The money comes from the Tourism Advisory Board (TAB), which is funded by room tax. Essentially, tourists are paying. This $100,000 is going to go a long way and will help to make the 2020 show as enjoyable as possible.

Video: Kamala Harris Once Laughed Hysterically After Joking About Killing President Trump

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) once made waves following an appearance on Ellen, where she laughed hysterically after joking about killing President Trump during a rapid-fire question session with host Ellen DeGeneres.

At the time of the appearance, April 2018, Harris remained mum on her presidential aspirations but answered a series of amusing questions about her first celebrity crush, nicknames, and the most “rebellious” thing she did as a teen. Then DeGeneres asked, “If you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?”

Harris looked away then responded, “Does one of us have to come out alive?” laughing hysterically at her own answer. The audience roared with laughter as DeGeneres put down her questions to clap her hands:

I believe this quote was stated by Sheriff Mike Lewis at Bob Culver’s celebration of life as tribute to Bob.

Mayor Lightfoot: Biden Key to Getting Gun Control for Chicago

During an August 12, 2020, appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) suggested Joe Biden is key to securing more gun control for Chicago and the rest of the country.

Co-host Mika Brzezinski played a clip of President Trump offering federal help to Chicago, wherein Trump said:

Together, the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois have 25,000 police officers, sheriffs, and guardsmen, available to quell any violence. They can do it very quickly, very easily, if allowed to do their jobs. All available federal support requested to stop the violence, and arrest the criminals, we have to be asked by the governors or the mayors and we’ll be there very rapidly.

Mayor Lightfoot responded, “Those are the words of somebody who doesn’t understand the first thing about local policing.”

She then pivoted to push for more gun control, suggesting the federal government needs to “pass common-sense gun reform, make sure that everybody has background checks, stop the availability of ‘assault weapons,’ people that are on a no-fly list shouldn’t be able to get weapons, the list goes on and on.”


Critics Question CARES Act Spending in Some States

Even as governors ask Congress for more pandemic relief money and more leeway to spend it, critics say some states are pushing the legal limits of how previous emergency federal aid can be spent.

South Dakota auditors are worried about a decision by Republican Gov. Kristi Noem’s administration to spend $4.7 million on state trooper salaries and benefits. Idaho county prosecutors are questioning Republican Gov. Brad Little’s plan to spend up to $200 million on local public safety budgets and property tax credits.

And West Virginia Democrats say Republican Gov. Jim Justice’s plan to spend upwards of $50 million on road repairs near health care facilities violates the spirit of the $150 billion Congress sent to states, counties and cities under the March Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act.

“The use of CARES Act funding to fix highways is absurd,” U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, Democrat of West Virginia, said of Justice’s plan in an emailed statement. “I’ve yet to meet a pothole that has the coronavirus. These funds should be used to help struggling West Virginians right now, not as some political slush fund.”


July Police Report Confirms Nearly Double Spike In Domestic Assaults

OCEAN CITY – While the total number of service calls decreased in the month of July, a report on police activity highlighted an increase in calls related to disorderly conduct, domestic incidents, and theft, among other things.

On Monday, Ocean City Police Chief Ross Buzzuro presented the Ocean City Police Commission with an update on police activity for the month of July.

Last month, officer calls for service decreased 30% – from 7,204 calls in July 2019 to 5,046 calls in July 2020 – and citizen calls for service increased 12.6%. In the top 25 calls for service, the department reported 1,075 911 hang ups, 857 calls to assist citizens and 1,320 calls for city ordinance violations.

“When we delve in a little deeper into the top 25 calls for service, the No. 1 call for service was city ordinance violation. Last year we were just under 3,000. This year there were 1,320, which is a decrease of 1,659,” Buzzuro said. “Probably the best reason for this is just the prioritization in activity. Officers have been busy spending time dealing with offenses going on with other incidents, prioritizing their enforcement efforts but not necessarily in terms of city ordinance violations.”


Boardwalk Redecking Project Delayed By Lumber Shortage

OCEAN CITY — Due to a nationwide shortage of treated lumber because of COVID-19, the first phase of the major re-decking project on the Boardwalk planned to begin this offseason has been pushed back a year.

Roughly every eight to 10 years, Ocean City’s wooden Boardwalk is completely replaced. The first phase was to begin this fall and be completed by the start of next season and the second phase was planned for the offseason in 2021.

However, City Engineer Terry McGean told the Mayor and Council on Tuesday he was recommending pushing the first phase back to next offseason and the second phase the following year.

“Most of you know our plan was to start re-decking the Boardwalk this offseason,” he said. “During our final preparations to solicit bids for the project, we made some phone calls and learned even if the suppliers could get the lumber at all, it would likely be twice the price. It’s a combination of the mills shutting down because of COVID and the high demand for lumber.”


Are Second $1,200 Stimulus Checks coming? Here's what we know

Capitol Hill has come to a standstill following heated discussions last week on what to include in the next coronavirus stimulus package.

One thing they did seem to agree on was another set of $1,200 checks to Americans, similar to the payments that went out this spring.

While Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said he wanted to start getting those second checks out this month, that seems more and more unlikely the longer that Congress fails to seal a deal.

"What I would say to people is there is still a pretty good chance that you're going to get these payments," said Howard Gleckman, senior fellow at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. "But it's impossible to know when or how long it's going to take."


Wis. State Agency requires employees to wear masks while Teleconferencing

A Wisconsin state agency has required employees to wear masks while teleconferencing from home, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

A July 31 email sent to employees by the state’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reportedly reminded them that Gov. Tony Evers’s (D) mask mandate went into effect the next day.

Natural Resources Secretary Preston Cole said in the email that staff has to wear masks in DNR buildings and in virtual meetings, according to the Journal Sentinel.

“Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff,” Cole reportedly wrote. “Set the safety example which shows you as a DNR public service employee care about the safety and health of others.”

The governor’s mask order requires face coverings to be worn in indoor public spaces, and does not include residencies.


Portland Prosecutor will drop most Criminal Charges against ANTIFA Rioters

Impunity to commit crimes.

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt confirmed that his office plans to drop criminal charges pending against a majority of the Portland rioters on Tuesday, establishing de facto immunity for ANTIFA militants to commit a wide range of riot crimes in the city.

Leftist rioters charged with interfering with police, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, escape or harassment will not be criminally prosecuted, unless they’re accused of offenses that involve “deliberate” property crimes, theft, or the use of force against another person.

“What we’re doing is recognizing that the right to speak and have your voice heard is extremely important,” said Schmidt at a Tuesday press conference, hailing the leftist street criminals who have terrorized the community and attacked a federal courthouse for weeks on end. “If you’re out there committing violence, you’re damaging property, those cases are going to be prosecuted. If you’re a person who is out there demonstrating and you get caught up in the melee, those are the kinds of cases that we’re talking about.”

NFL won't have live National Anthem Performances, may bar Military, Police?

The NFL won't have any live performances of the national anthem before games this season, as it reportedly attempts to limit the number of people with access to the field to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, according to Front Office Sports.
The tradition of having performers sing the national anthem before games has become a source of controversy due to social justice protests. Although the anthem won't be performed live, there will still be recordings of the song played before the game.
The NFL could also limit the presence of military and police honor guards on the field. Those groups are often a part of the national anthem ceremony at games.
While there may be less ceremony surrounding the national anthem in the NFL in 2020, there will be more in the way of social justice protests and signs of support for anti-racism initiatives. From ESPN's The Undefeated:
"Lift Ev'ry Voice And Sing," traditionally known as the Black national anthem, is expected to be performed live or played before every Week 1 NFL game, and the league is considering a variety of other measures during the upcoming season to recognize victims of police brutality, a source familiar with the league's discussions told The Undefeated on Thursday.

The song would be performed before "The Star-Spangled Banner," the source said. The NFL's season opener is scheduled for Sept. 10, with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans.

Having recently displayed increased awareness about the problems of systemic racism, the NFL, in collaboration with the NFL Players Association, is also considering listing the names of victims on uniforms through decals on helmets or patches on jerseys. The NFL also may produce educational programs about victims, among other plans.
The NFL will also place social justice messages in the end zones during Week 1 instead of the typical team brand imagery, including "End Racism" and "It Takes All of Us."

Hospital worker is charged with sexually assaulting patient

A former Maryland hospital worker has been charged with sexually assaulting an unconscious patient.

Easton police said Travis K. Brooks, 35, of Trappe, Maryland, was arrested Tuesday on charges of second-degree rape, third- and fourth-degree sex offense, abuse of a vulnerable adult and second-degree assault.

Authorities began an investigation in April after Easton police were called to the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center for a theft report, news outlets reported.

Officers were told that a patient had money stolen from her wallet while having a procedure done.


WAYNE ROOT: Kamala Harris is the Perfect Choice for VP

Kamala? Really? Well one thing is clear: Michelle said “NO.” Maybe even “Hell NO.”

Don’t get me wrong. Kamala Harris is the perfect choice for Basement Biden’s VP…if your only criteria is “black female.”

Because other than that, Kamala offers nothing to Biden. As in zero. Zip. Nada. The Kamala Harris VP choice is one of the great head scratchers in presidential political history. It just doesn’t make sense.

Except, of course, Biden wanted and needed a “black female.” Remember only 24 hours before announcing Kamala as his VP choice, 100 black male leaders from the fields of politics, business and entertainment, sent Biden a letter demanding a “black female” VP choice, or he’d surely lose election.

Enter Kamala. She’s certainly got the credentials…if your only criteria is “black female.”


"BIDEN DOESN'T KNOW" President Trump SLAMS Joe Biden And Kamala Harris In HEATED News Conference

“Probably Not the Best Roll Out” – Power Out, No Air Conditioning at Biden-Harris Event Site – Periscope Livestream Down For 15 Minutes! (VIDEO)

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on Wednesday headed over to a school in Delaware in their first appearance together.

Things didn’t start off so well.

The power was out, there was no air conditioning and Biden’s Periscope livestream abruptly ended as he was speaking.

CNN criticized Biden’s camp after there was an hour delay to the event: “Probably not the best roll out.”


Willie Brown admits it: Kamala Harris slept her way to the top

Editor's note:

American Thinker normally does not reprint previously published material, but this morning, we are making an exception, owing to the level of interest in Kamala Harris and her political career, which began, as Howie Carr quipped, "working under Willie Brown."

The item below was originally published January 27, 2019.

* * * *

Kamala Harris, that vaunted self-righteous feminist candidate who's using her 'year of the woman' chops to challenge President Trump in 2020, has a little problem: She slept her way to the top.

You know, the mistress thing, not exactly moving on up based on hard work or merit, that little advantage of good looks (President Obama called her the 'best-looking' state attorney general), employed to their optimal practical use. Her political patron, former lawyer to pimps, Mayor of San Francisco, and State Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, admitted he helped her get her political start, writing in his bloggy San Francisco Chronicle column:

Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker.

And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco. I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians.

No, Kamala Harris Isn’t A ‘Moderate’ — She’s A Radical Threat To America

The media are spinning Kamala Harris as a 'centrist' and a 'moderate.' In reality, she's a leftist who could be one heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

Once Joe Biden named Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate for the upcoming 2020 election, it didn’t take long for the media to begin its latest attempt to gaslightAmericans.

In the Associated Press announcement of Biden’s choice, AP writers Kathleen Ronayne and Will Weissert write approvingly of Harris’s “centrist record” as a contributing factor in the decision. Longtime political analyst and lobbyist Doug Schoen praised Biden’s pick while arguing Harris “could help Biden solidify his position among centrist voters and even moderate Republican voters.”

Kamala Harris Was Ringleader In Brett Kavanaugh Character Assassination Attempt

One of the ringleaders of the Democratic Party’s attempt to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life in 2018 has been named Joe Biden’s running mate for the 2020 presidential election.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., used the Kavanaugh nomination in 2018 as a springboard for her failed presidential campaign. Focusing on her support for abortion and position on the Senate Judiciary Committee that handled the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, Harris strongly opposed Kavanaugh’s nomination within moments of it being announced, and long before she had a chance to review his record.

She joined other Democratic presidential hopefuls on the steps of the Supreme Court the next day to further express her opposition. She ran 3,600 different advertisements on Facebook before the second round of hearings began in late September 2018.

“Her performance during the Kavanaugh circus stood out as particularly demagogic, cynical & abysmal,” wrote TownHall political editor Guy Benson.

Within a few seconds of the first hearings being gaveled to order, Harris interrupted the proceedings in an attempt to shut them down on procedural grounds, part of a coordinated attack that included attempts by hundreds of compensated activists to get arrested.

"Disastrous Economic Situation" - Small Firm Bust Goes Unnoticed As Economy Flounders

The virus-induced recession has resulted in deep economic scarring that will be seen for years. Tens of millions of Americans remain unemployed, broke, and hungry. US bankruptcies of large companies are on pace to hit a 10-year high, with even moredevastation seen among smaller firms.

The collapse of small business is absolutely shocking, considering firms with under 500 employees account for about 44% of US economic activity.

Bloomberg notes a "wave of silent failures goes uncounted in part because real-time data on small business is notoriously scarce, and because owners of small firms often have no debt, and thus no need for bankruptcy court."

"Probably all you need to do is call the utilities and tell them to turn them off and close your door," said William Dunkelberg, chief economist for the National Federation of Independent Business.

Dunkelberg warned: Small business closures "are going to be well above normal because we're in a disastrous economic situation."

Yelp's latest data on business activity shows more than 80,000 companies permanently shuttered operations from March 1 to July 25. What's concerning is that 60,000 of these closings were small firms.


Kamala Harris believed Joe Biden’s accusers — until she didn’t

By the standard of her own ample public record, ­Kamala Harris has just joined the presidential campaign of a serial sexual abuser, Joe Biden.

It was during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings that we first learned that Harris harbors serious presidential aspirations. Her cross-examination of the future justice went viral, prompting Politico to speculate: “Kamala Harris Rides Kavanaugh Rage in Likely 2020 Bid.”

She later explained her ­hard-line position in an Atlantic magazine interview. Sexual ­assault, she said, “is an issue right now that is where the issue of domestic violence was about 30 years ago. … There was a perception about domestic violence: ‘Oh, you know, what happens in the king’s castle is the king’s business. That’s private business. That’s not our business.’ But then we evolved as a society. … I believe this is an inflection moment on the issue of sexual assault.”

The explicitly stated assumption behind all this was that the allegations against Kavanaugh, spurious, unproved and uncorroborated though they were, had to be believed — because women had made them.


5 Things You Need To Know About Kamala Harris

PAINFUL: The 10 Most Cringeworthy Kamala Harris Endorsements

Poor Kamala Harris, stuck between Joe Biden and the American Left.

(But I repeat myself.)

It’s always nice when someone endorses you.

Except when it isn’t.

Sometimes an endorsement only serves to remind you that some of your supporters are…

…well, let’s just say Kamala Harris would certainly enjoy getting Biden-Harris marked on certain people’s secret ballots, but maybe the public love is a little too much.

Here are ten examples of just that.

My poodle and I are going to bed happy knowing that when Uncle Joe becomes President, Auntie Kamala will be there in case bad crap

— Ana Navarro-Cárdenas (@ananavarro) August 12, 2020

Let’s stipulate for the moment that some Republicans and conservatives distrust Donald Trump so much that even now they’re unwilling to vote for him for president.

It’s a big country with plenty of room for reasonable disagreements. So having stipulated the premise, let’s also concede that an actual Republican or actual conservative could reasonably and honestly find it impossible to support Trump with their vote.

There was no way I could vote for George Bush in 1992 after his 180 on taxes, something we all know was true of many Republicans.

However, it’s one thing to refuse to support a member of your party whom you feel has let you down, and quite another to sappily endorse the opposition, referring to them as “Uncle Joe” and “Auntie Kamala.”


Carney says Delaware can't afford state share of federal unemployment in Trump's executive order

Governor John Carney expressed frustration Tuesday over President Donald Trump's recent executive order that extends federal pandemic unemployment assistance for those who've lost their jobs, but requires states to pick up a portion of the tab.

"This new action, this executive order, is very complicated, and frankly, unnecessary," he told WDEL.

The executive order reduces pandemic unemployment assistance from $600 to $400 a week, but requires states to pay 25% or $100 of that cost.

The memorandum, from the president, noted if a state does not have the money and can't pay, it won't receive the other $300 from the federal government and workers will only be left with existing state unemployment benefits. States will also have to set up an entirely new system to deliver the additional aid, CNN reported.

"We have a system where we can do 100% or we can do 75%, they pay 25, and it will depend on the state," Trump told reporters before returning to the White House from his resort in New Jersey. "And they will make a application. We will look at it, and we'll make a decision."

Kanye West releases presidential platform on new campaign website

Kanye West, the billionaire rapper and long-shot White House hopeful, announced his 10-point presidential platform that includes restoring prayer in classrooms, reforming the police, seeking racial justice in the courts and promoting “Creativity and the Arts.”

West, who launched his presidential bid on July 4 under the “Birthday Party,” punctuated each of his 2020 presidential plans with his interpretation of biblical phrases on his campaign website.

The list begins with “Creating a Culture of Life” and calls for restoring faith and reviving the “Constitutional commitment to freedom of religion and the free exercise of one’s faith.”


MSM Plays Preemptive Misogyny Victim Card for Kamala Harris

MSM Wants You to Shut It, Sexist

Joyous midweek greetings to all of you, my dear Kruiser Morning Briefing readers.

Well, we finally have something to talk about that isn’t plague or riot-related, so I suppose we should be grateful for that. Unfortunately, it’s Kamala Harris.

A LOT of Kamala Harris.

OK, the MSM too.

Neither are very palatable.

This story about the MSM was originally going to be a more generic stand-alone column that I was going to post yesterday. I had begun writing it before Biden announced his VP pick. Once he did, I decided to write about that for the column instead and save the MSM hackery for this morning.

First, a brief glimpse at my column.

I admit that I thought Crazy Joe the Wonder Veep was going to choose Susan Rice but I kept hoping (on the record) that it would be Harris, because I think she’s horrible and therefore gives Trump a better chance for winning.

A couple hours after I published the column, POTUS confirmed that I’m not the only one thinking that.

Anyway, the column is here, and here is a brief snippet for your enjoyment:

Kamala Harris has all the charm of Katie in Paranormal Activity after the demon got complete control of her. If she is going to be getting more camera time than Biden, they better hope that she’s learned some lessons from last year.

Onto our friends in the MSM.


Colleges attempt to Impose "No Parties, No Trips" COVID-19 Rules for Fall

Even after big names like Harvard announced "online only" classes through the Fall semester, many colleges and universities across the nation will be opening campus for in-person classes with even sports to resume, albeit with strict coronavirus safety measures in place.

Anxiety is still high, however, as schools deal with a variety of "unknowns" as it will try to enforce everything from regular COVID-19 testing, to socially distanced dorms, to face-masks at all campus events, to a ban on parties for students often paying sky-high tuition. Concerning that last one — a strict ban on parties, which many have long seen as part of the 'college experience', this will be much easier said than done. Is it realistic?

"As they struggle to salvage some semblance of a campus experience this fall, U.S. colleges are requiring promises from students to help contain the coronavirus — no keg parties, no long road trips and no outside guests on campus," AP reports. "No kidding. Administrators warn that failure to wear masks, practice social distancing and avoid mass gatherings could bring serious consequences, including getting booted from school."


PA Teacher worries about 'Conservative' Parents listening in on classes

Kay said "conservative parents" are his chief concern when teachers are engaging “in the messy work of destabilizing a kid’s racism or homophobia or transphobia.”

A Philadelphia public school teacher is curious about how educators will cope with “conservative parents" listening in on virtual classes, according to a thread captured on Twitter.

According to a report by the Daily Wire, Matthew Kay, who teaches English at the Science Leadership Academy said on the social media platform that he is concerned about the “damage” that “helicopter parents” might cause if they overhear lessons on topics such as gender and sexuality.

BLM holds rally in Chicago to support those arrested after looting, unrest

“That is reparations,” a BLM organizer said. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance"

Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report.

The rally was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where organizers say individuals are currently being held in custody. At least one organizer called the looting tantamount to "reparations."

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”


Why Kamala Harris was picked as Joe Biden’s running mate

WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden named California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate Tuesday, adding an experienced campaigner with national star power to his ticket.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden tweeted.

Harris tweeted that Biden “can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he'll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

A barrier-breaking former California attorney general and San Francisco district attorney, Harris gives the Democratic presidential nominee-to-be a vice presidential candidate with long experience in executive and legislative roles, as well as a prosecutorial sharpness that she brought with her to the Senate. She will be the first woman of color to be put on a major party’s ticket.

But Harris has been opposed by some progressives for her record in law enforcement and at times less-liberal positions. Her nearly 20 years in office in San Francisco, Sacramento and Washington, along with her criticisms of Biden during the Democratic presidential primary campaign, could also provide fodder for attacks from President Trump and other Republicans.


Fairfax Public Schools Tell Parents To Stop Educating Their Kids While School Is Banned

A county in Virginia is discouraging parents from hiring private tutors for their children while refusing to provide in-person instruction in public schools.

“While [the Fairfax County Public School system] doesn’t and can’t control these private tutoring groups, we do have concerns that they may widen the gap in educational access and equity for all students,” said a memofrom one of the nation’s largest school systems on Friday. Many parents are working together to hire private tutors to teach their children in small groups at home.


GovTrack: Kamala Harris Further Left than ‘Democratic Socialist’ Bernie Sanders

The non-partisan website rated Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) the most left-wing member of the Senate in 2019 — further left than “democratic socialist” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

In 2018, Harris was ranked the fourth-most left-wing. But by 2019 — a year she spent running for president — Harris had moved to the furthest extreme.

She was an early co-sponsor of the Senate version of the “Green New Deal” of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), as well as the “Medicare for All” bill introduced by Sanders, which would have eliminated all private health insurance.

Harris also supported granting free health care to illegal aliens, slashing military budgets, and other radical proposals.

GovTrack explained its ratings: “Our unique ideology analysis assigns a score to Members of Congress according to their legislative behavior by how similar the pattern of bills and resolutions they cosponsor are to other Members of Congress. The score can be interpreted as a conservative—liberal scale, although of course it only takes into account a small aspect of reality.” The most conservative score is 1.00; the most liberal score possible is 0.00.

Harris ranked #100 — the “least conservative,” or most liberal, Senator on the list, and the only one to score a “0.00”:


Far-Left Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal Brags About Manipulating Joe Biden

Far-left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) told Comedy Central's Trevor Noah on Monday that Joe Biden is essentially a puppet who can be easily manipulated.

"I will be pushing him, as soon as we get him in the White House and even before, with these task forces that we had" Japayal said, adding "we were able to significantly push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn't signed on to before. So he is moveable, he is listening."


Chicago's Mayor Daley Issued 'Shoot to Kill' Orders in '68. Do We Need That Again to Quell Leftist Mayhem?

Chicago was rocked by a wild Sunday night of mayhem and looting Sunday. Pandemonium erupted after misinformation about a police shooting spread throughout the city. Over 100 arrests have been made since this chaotic night. Social media posts reportedly encouraged looting downtown, which led to the drawbridges to be raised that night in an effort to curb the movement of these rioters (via WGN9 Chicago):
Chicago’s top cop said about 100 people were arrested and 13 police officers were injured after a night of looting in downtown Chicago.
Widespread damage was reported throughout Chicago after looting and rioting began around midnight Monday. Witnesses reported hundreds of people smashing their way into stores throughout Michigan Avenue, areas in the South Loop and the near North Side.
Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said the looting started as a result of misinformation following a police-involved shooting in Englewood.
Brown said police were called to the 5700 block of Racine Avenue for a call with a man with a gun. Brown said that suspect was spotted and officers attempted to interview the man but he quickly fled. He said as the man was running away, he pointed a gun at officers and fired shots. Officers returned fire and struck him.
The man, 20, was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center and is expected to survive.
Brown said the 20-year-old had four previous arrested including burglary, child endangerment and domestic battery.

President Trump Says He Would 'Absolutely' Fill A Supreme Court Vacancy Before November

President Trump indicated that he would fill a potential vacancy on the Supreme Court ahead of the election in November, as rumors of a potential retirement loom. In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, Trump said he would nominate a jurist to fill the seat quickly:

The prospect of filling a Supreme Court seat ahead of November sparks controversy on Capitol Hill, as Democrats warn Republicans of adhering to their own standard set in 2016. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) famously declined to hold hearings for President Obama’s final nominee, Judge Merrick Garland. Hedging his bets on a GOP sweep in November of 2016, Leader McConnell argued that a justice should not be confirmed to the high court amidst divided government.


Has America Entered A New Era Of Permanent Civil Unrest?

In 2020, it seems like each new day brings more headlines about chaos on the streets of America, and on Monday that included violence right outside the gates of the White House. It is being reported that there was “an active shooter near the White House”, and we are being told that the Secret Service shot a “male suspect” and that the “male suspect” had been transported to the hospital. I am sure that we will learn more about this incident in the days ahead, and we should be thankful that the Secret Service was able to easily handle this situation.

But there are reports that a group of protesters plans to “lay siege” to the White House in the weeks leading up to the election, and so officials will undoubtedly have their hands full as we draw closer to November.

Meanwhile, we just witnessed five hours of rioting, looting and violence in Chicago. Some rioters exchanged gunfire with police, and ultimately a decision was made to raise bridges going into the city in order to contain the violence

Chicago officials raised bridges and suspended some train and bus service Monday morning after unrest and looting caused widespread damage in the city’s downtown overnight.

Videos that were circulating on social media captured the early morning scenes of hundreds of people in the streets, dozens of police officers, looting and confrontations with the police. There was also an exchange of gunfire with the police in the downtown, according to a police spokesman, Tom Ahren. He said on Twitter early Monday that there were “shots fired at police who returned fire,” and that no officers were injured.”

In the past, a night of chaos like that would have been the top headline in the country for days, but now it is “just another riot” which will soon fade from memory.


Tom Del Beccaro: Kamala Harris, Biden's VP pick, views politics as a game

Harris's convictions aren't about the issues, they're about power and the limelight

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, after many delays, has finally announced his choice for vice president. He's chosen former presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as his running mate.

Time will tell the real story behind why Biden chose Harris. Meanwhile, what is blatantly apparent is that Harris is not ready to be president. That is no small consideration given what critics have referred to as potential cognitive issues for the 77-year-old former vice president. These potential cognitive issues could make Harris president of the United States -- and in short order.

Indeed, for the first time in American history, voters are presented with the real possibility they are selecting someone with the knowledge that the vice-presidential candidate could be president within four years – or less.


Surging Gun Sales Triggers Second Ammo Shortage Of This Year

The virus pandemic triggered a socio-economic bomb across major US metro areas resulting in one of the largest panic hoardings of guns and ammo by fearful consumers in quite some time, if not ever.

Gregory Ionadi, 75, the owner of gun shop Smoke N' Guns, located in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, told PJ Media:

"Prior to the COVID outbreak, President Obama was the best gun salesman we ever had," said Ionadi. "Anytime he was going to ban this, ban that, there was a rush on gun sales. When President Trump was elected, the fear of a gun ban subsided, and sales were so flat that several gun manufacturers went out of business."

Ionadi said sales at his gun shop erupted during the pandemic. He said he made more gun and ammo sales from March to April than what was done in the last three years, calling the period absolutely "crazy."

He said once the social unrest spread across the country by late May into early summer, the second round of panic buying occurred.

"You wouldn't believe the first-time gun buyers I've seen," said Ionadi. "I started seeing little old ladies — 70, 80 years old — wanting to defend themselves because of what was going on. So, I had to change my thinking. I had to start buying .22 Magnum revolvers. I have some revolvers here, but I had to start buying revolvers that women and older folks could use because they are easy to handle. Semi-auto and a revolver are two different things."

Gun stocks soared this summer as gun background checks rose 79% in July year-over-year.



Democrats decide to ignore bombshell testimony of Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre

The Democratic Party has tapped Bill Clinton as one of the main speakers for the upcoming Democratic National Convention despite recently released court documents alleging the former president had flown with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to his private Caribbean island with “two young girls.”

Clinton is slated to speak along with socialist firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Joe Biden’s wife Jill Biden, John Kerry, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer next Tuesday.


Trump-haters realize there are things worse than Trump

There are three groups of people who will vote for Trump: those who supported Trump in 2016, those who have come to support Trump, and those who are so frightened of Biden and the Democrats that they'll do anything to see Trump win. This has the potential to be a sizable voting bloc, one that may give Trump more than the 30 states he won in 2016.

Don Surber (whose blog you should be reading) is predicting that Trump will not only win the 30 states he won in 2016, but will add another seven. I'm beginning to think Don is on to something.

Don's starting point is that, subject to a vanishingly small number of exceptions, those people who supported Trump in 2016 still support him. That means he'll get 63 million or so votes at a minimum. That's a good start.

Next, add the people who have grown to appreciate Trump. Until the Democrats used the Wuhan virus to shut down the economy, Trump had presided over an extraordinary economic boom, one that benefited all Americans. In an op-ed for CNN that must have terrified Democrats, Rich Thau, who runs the Swing Voter Project, wrote about the normal, fairly apolitical, people who benefited from the Trump boom. The majority of these swing voters, he said, want Trump:


Flashback–Kamala Harris: ‘I Believe’ Biden Accusers

In April 2019, senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said she believed the women who said they felt uncomfortable after being touched by former Vice President and presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden.

Senator Harris said last year at one of her campaign events that she believed accusers of Joe Biden, according to a report by The Hill.


Kamala Harris Brings Extreme Gun Control Position to Biden Ticket

Democrat presidential hopeful and gun control proponent Joe Biden has officially chosen extreme gun controller Kamala Harris to be his running mate.

On July 14, 2019, Breitbart News reported presidential hopeful Harris’s pledge to go around Congress to secure gun control via executive action, if Congress refused to support her gun control agenda.


Peter Schweizer: Kamala Harris Gained ‘Job Promotions’ and BMW 7 Series During Willie Brown Affair

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), former 2020 presidential candidate, rose to power in California politics by having an affair with former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, according to Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) president and Breitbart News senior contributor.

Schweizer reveals in his book Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite and in a sit-down interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily that Brown gave Harris expensive favors, such as a BMW 7 Series and job promotions within the city government.


Correction: Transgender Surgery Does Not Help Mental Health, Academics Belatedly Admit

Last year, a groundbreaking study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry (AJP) claimed to prove that transgender surgery improves the mental health of people suffering from gender dysphoria (the persistent and painful identification with the gender opposite one’s biological sex). Earlier this month, however, AJP issued a “correction” that acknowledged key flaws in the study and admitted that the true results “demonstrated no advantage of surgery.” This represents a severe blow to the transgender ideological takeover of American medicine.

The original AJP article “Reduction in Mental Health Treatment Utilization Among Transgender Individuals After Gender-Affirming Surgeries: A Total Population Study,” written by Richard Bränström, Ph.D., and John E. Pachankis, Ph.D. and published on October 4, 2019, analyzed a newly available dataset from Sweden. The study found that people with gender dysphoria were “about six times as likely” to have a mood and anxiety disorder health-care visit and far more likely to be hospitalized for a suicide attempt.

The study compared gender dysphoric people who did not take cross-sex hormones or undergo transgender surgery with those who did. The authors admitted that “years since initiating hormone treatment was not significantly related to likelihood of mental health treatment,” but claimed that “increased time since last gender-affirming surgery was associated with reduced mental health treatment.”


Donald Trump: The Way NBA Bows to China Is a ‘Disgrace’

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said it was a disgrace the NBA continued to cater to China despite their known human rights abuses.

“The way they cater to China, the way they bow to China, it’s a disgrace, frankly and they make a lot more money here than they do from China,” Trump said about the organization.

The president commented on the NBA during an interview with Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis on Tuesday morning.

He also criticized NBA players that frequently protested and voiced opposition to the United States.

“Some are very nasty, very, very nasty, and frankly very dumb,” Trump replied.

The president recalled the United States had enshrined freedom of speech, but suggested players criticize other countries as well.

“We have a system that allows you to disrespect your system and that’s too bad for them, they don’t appreciate what they have here,” Trump said.


Police: Pennsylvania Man Admits to Killing Two Mothers of His Children

A Pennsylvania man accused of fatally shooting the two mothers of his children admitted that he committed both murders during an interview with law enforcement officials, police said.

Davone Unique Anderson, 25, told the police that he shot and killed Sydney Parmelee, 23, at a home on July 5 because he believed she was cheating on him, Penn Live reported.

Detectives said Anderson told them he fatally shot Kaylee Lyons, 23, who was six weeks pregnant, at the same house on July 30 because he was scared she would tell the authorities he killed Parmelee.

The officers said Parmelee’s body was found with a bullet wound to her head on a couch on July 5 before 4:45 p.m. Detectives said a gun and a used bullet casing were found nearby.

Both shootings took place at Lyons’s home.
