Brokered Peace Deal as Rashida Tlaib Yells
At Clouds 8 replies
Joe Biden’s attempts to pretend every good thing that happens under the Trump administration is a result of the Obama administration have become fairly expected. When it comes to the economy, we continually hear Trump isn’t responsible for the booming growth experienced through much of his term. But in relation to foreign policy, it’s a bit jarring to see the former Vice President try to take credit for a peace deal the Obama administration had no hand in at all. Yet, Biden tried to spin that narrative today. This came after Trump brokered a historic deal between Israel and the UAE. Later in the day, Bahrain and Oman followed suit,
Spanish flu survives COVID-19 4 replies
A 107-year-old New Jersey grandmother who survived the Spanish flu a century ago is now a two-time pandemic survivor after beating COVID-19. Brooklyn native Anna Del Priore, who turns 108 next month, was diagnosed with the coronavirus in May and her granddaughter, Darlene Jasmine, had assumed the worst, the Asbury Park Press reports. “I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is it,’” Jasmine told the newspaper. “This is the thing that’s going to take her down.” But Del Priore, who contracted the Spanish Flu during the influenza pandemic in 1918 that killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide, didn’t succumb to the virus. Instead, she’s still mobile, dancing whenever possible at Brighton Gardens,
with autism refuses to wear mask 18 replies
A Texas mom says Southwest Airlines kicked her off a flight from Midland to Houston after her 3-year-old autistic son refused to wear a mask. “He is 3 and has autism and sensory processing disorders, so he wouldn’t keep the mask on,” Alyssa Sadler, of Houston, told ABC affiliate KTRK. “They’re trying to talk to him, tell him, ‘You have to wear it. It’s not an option,’ and I’m trying to explain to them, you know, he doesn’t understand what you’re saying.” The mom said her son “doesn’t like things touching his face.” “He was screaming. He was throwing a fit. He was screaming no, no, no,” she told NBC Houston.
Republican control could be ‘tough’ 17 replies
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he feels “optimistic” that Republicans will be able to hold on to the Senate come November — but warned it was going to be “tough.” McConnell (R-Ky.) offered his take on where things stood for the GOP ahead of the election during an appearance on Fox News’ “Bill Hemmer Reports” Tuesday, after being asked if his party could keep Senate control. “Yeah, we can, but this was always going to be a tough cycle for us. This is a big class of incumbents because we took the majority six years ago,” the Kentucky Republican said.

Kamala Harris, named Tuesday to be Joe Biden’s running mate, still has more than $1 million in unpaid bills left over from her failed 2020 presidential bid, according to a report. The California senator raised about $39 million for her White House bid in 2019 and spent about $40 million, leaving her campaign with just $116,380 in the bank at the end of June, Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday, citing Federal Election Commission filings. Harris ended her campaign last December amid falling poll numbers and a lack of fundraising. International law firm Perkins Coie LLP was still owed $523,883 at the end of June,
COVID-19: scientists 8 replies
Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, have devised a nasal spray to administer synthetic antibodies, which they believe will help stop the spread of the coronavirus. A team led by graduate student Michael Schoof engineered the synthetic molecule that “straitjackets the crucial SARS-CoV-2 machinery that allows the virus to infect our cells,” according to a report on the university’s website. A paper posted on the preprint server bioRxiv says experiments using the live virus show the molecule is among the most powerful COVID-19 antivirals yet discovered. While it’s not a traditional vaccine, the researchers believe one spray a day of the synthetic antibodies, dubbed “AeroNabs,”
For White Customers 25 replies
A vintage clothing shop in Savannah, Georgia has come under fire after they posted a Facebook promotion that stated they would require white customers to pay a $20 refundable deposit when they book an appointment to shop at the store, but they are waiving this fee for “BIPOC” (Black, indigenous, and people of color) customers. Civvies on Broughton, which is known for its elaborate collection of recycled clothing, posted the viral promotion announcing their reopening plans, including their racial guidelines. “As a mostly white staff with white ownership, we do not feel comfortable upholding a digital and financial barrier which could prohibit BIPOC from shopping at our store
Re-Election 4 replies
Officer Garrett Rolfe was maliciously charged with murder and ten other counts in June by then-District Attorney Paul Howard. Last night, Howard was unseated by a tenacious young woman who worked under Howard for 16 years. Fani Willis won in a landslide with 73% of the vote. If you recall, Paul Howard is a slimy DA who embraced the media frenzy surrounding Rayshard Brooks’ death. Howard conducted a theatrical press conference announcing criminal charges before the Georgia Bureau of Investigation completed an investigation of the shooting. He then audaciously used images from the shooting in his re-election campaign advertisements.
Harass People in the City’s Neighborhoods 18 replies
Protesters marching in Seattle were caught on video harassing people in apartment buildings, accusing them of taking part in pushing out the black people who used to live in the neighborhood. The video, taken by Concrete Reporting on Wednesday, showed a crowd of protesters demanding the people who were in the apartment complex to “give us your house!” and made jokes about how they supposedly worked for Amazon. “Give black people back their homes! You’re sitting there comfortably, comfortable as f**k as if you didn’t help to gentrify this neighborhood…my family was pushed out and you’re sitting there with your other white friends!”
American Jobs to Illegal Aliens 4 replies
A new ad by President Trump’s re-election campaign goes after Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden for wanting to flood the United States labor market with millions of illegal aliens. The ad notes Biden’s support for providing amnesty to the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. — a plan that Democrats have said is first on their list if they sweep the November elections — while acknowledging that immigration is a labor issue, a populist principle that Biden has long denied. “Citizenship … for 11 million undocumented folks,” Biden says in the ad. “That means 11 million illegal immigrants competing for American jobs,
Trump Admin’s Title IX Campus Sex Misconduct
Rule 4 replies
The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia rejected an attempt by a coalition of 18 Democrat attorneys general to block the Trump administration’s new Title IX rule that governs campus sexual misconduct. The court denied the Democrats’ motion for a preliminary injunction Wednesday, allowing the rule to take effect on Friday. U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said in a statement: Today’s ruling is yet another victory for students and reaffirms that students’ rights under Title IX go hand in hand with basic American principles of fairness and due process. With yet another failed attempt to block our historic Title IX Rule,
