8 Disturbing Statements on Masks You Probably Won't See on MSNBC

“Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal.”

That same paragraph concludes with this sentence: “In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

Here we are, five months into the coronavirus pandemic. Five months into a raging fire that two weeks of shutdowns were supposed to save us from back in March, and the flames continue to rip through state after state, city after city.

Places that held the virus at bay early on are firmly in its grasp now. Some locales are seeing their second battle with this beast. The narrative from the experts is more fluid than that 5W-30 that keeps your car engine from locking up.

Don’t wear masks? Now everyone wear masks. Goggles … people should probably start wearing goggles. It might be necessary to wear masks in your own home. If we don’t get a vaccine soon, those experts may suggest everyone have a mask surgically attached to their face.

With each new restriction, politicians and bureaucrats tell us to trust the science, but the science keeps changing. Or does it?

On March 31, NBC News published an article titled “Do you need a mask? The science hasn’t changed, but public guidance might.”

NBC quoted the oft-stated official line “a mask does not help a healthy person avoid infection.” How many times have we heard, “My mask protects you; your mask protects me”?

But in this same article, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is quoted as saying the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may need to look at changing the guidance to recommend widespread mask use “as long as we’re absolutely certain we don’t take the masks away from who are health care providers who need them.”

Swarms of mosquitoes kill hundreds of cows, deer and wildlife in Louisiana

Thick clouds of mosquitoes from Hurricane Laura kill cows, deer and other livestock in

Farmers in a five-parish area in Louisiana have probably lost 300 to 400 cattle as mosquitos leave the animals anemic and bleeding under their skins. A deer rancher lost about 30 of his 110 animals, many of which had already been sold. Livestock deaths from mosquitoes aren't a new phenomenon, having also occurred after Hurricane Lili in 2002 and Hurricane Rita in 2005.

Trump slams Democrat fundraising platform ActBlue

$346M in donations came from untraceable 'unemployed' donors and asks 'money laundering anyone?'

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, says ActBlue's large pool of unemployed donors is suspicious

President Trump on Saturday alleged wrongdoing after a conservative group claimed a major online platform used to raise money for Democratic candidates and causes solicited funds from a large pool of untraceable donors who claim to be unemployed.

The Take Back Action Fund says it has analyzed computer data that shows almost half of all donations made to ActBlue in 2019 totaling some $346million were done by people claiming to be unemployed, according to Fox News.

‘After downloading hundreds of millions of [dollars in] donations to the Take Back Action Fund servers, we were shocked to see that almost half of the donations to ActBlue in 2019 claimed to be unemployed individuals,’ Action Fund President John Pudner said.

NEVER FORGET! Dramatic images of World Trade Centre collapse on 9/11

We have seen the Twin Towers collapse hundreds of times on TV. The steel and glass skyscrapers exploding like a bag of flour, the dust and smoke pluming out across Manhattan. But never like this, from above.

Nine years after the defining moment of the 21st century, a stunning set of photographs taken by New York Police helicopters forces us to look afresh at a catastrophe we assumed we knew so well.

You know but cannot see the 2,752 men, women and children who died at the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001. None is visible here.

Rush Limbaugh: Reporters at Biden presser 'embarrassing for journalism'

A reporter with The Atlantic poses a question to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden (Video screenshot)

The softball questions lobbed at Joe Biden in a rare media opportunity Friday after his speech in Wilmington, Delaware, were "embarrassing for journalism," said talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.

"This was nothing but a bunch of sycophants," he said. "I wouldn't be a bit surprised if their questions had been written for them by the Biden campaign and they dutifully read what was on the card."

At the end of his speech, Biden turned to a staffer and said, "I guess, are you calling on people, or how am I, I don't have a list, so you go ahead and call."

The first reporter was from The Atlantic, the magazine that published the anonymously sourced article that claimed President Trump called fallen American soldiers buried at a cemetery in France "losers" and suckers." President Trump and the White House strongly deny the claim, pointing to 10 people who were there who state on the record it is false. Former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who says he was there, also disputed the claim Friday.


Fred Weinberg: It's Time for Fox To Drop 'Fair and Balanced' and Drop Juan Williams with It

Given my view of the world, you are more likely to see Fox News on my office wall than any other news outlet.

But it’s time they, too, start paying attention to the real world.

Let’s discuss “fair and balanced.” Those two terms are these days often mutually exclusive.

Jessica Tarlov, Marie Harf, Richard Fowler and Juan Williams don’t balance anything. What they do is generally lower the intelligence quotient of otherwise good panels.

Ask any of them a question and then match their answers against the daily Democratic talking points.

It’s as if the aforementioned leftist establishment talking heads have them directly injected each morning.

Donna Brazile I have a little more respect for since she once emotionally noted that it took a conservative Republican president (George W. Bush) to appoint our first black female secretary of state. But Donna also has a tendency to slide down the Democratic slope when she’s inspired.


Owner of Torched Kenosha Business Rails Against Officials: 'Nobody Did Nothing About It'

Amid the charred wreckage of his family’s business and dreams, a Kenosha man is calling for more protections for small businesses as riots rage out of control across the nation.

Anmol Khindri is a member of the family that owns Car Source, a used car dealership that was all but destroyed after two nights of arson and vandalism left the business suffering a loss he estimated at $2.5 million, according to the Kenosha News.

Rioting began in Wisconsin last Sunday after Jacob Blake, 29, was shot by police trying to detain him. Mobs began rampaging through downtown Kenosha, vandalizing and torching buildings.

A HYPERSONIC Air Force One???? Looks like it

Air Force awards $1.5 million contract to develop hypersonic Mach 5 plane

The contract, announced by aerospace firm Hermeus on Thursday, will fund the development of a small passenger jet that could replace the Gulfstream-based planes currently in the presidential fleet. Though the current aircraft under consideration would be too small to replace Air Force One, it could conceivably someday be used to transport Cabinet members, Congressional delegations, and other officials whose transport is overseen by the Special Air Mission. The Air Force investment, awarded through AFWERX, is worth $1.5 million and will be used to evaluate potential hypersonic military transports for an aircraft seating nine to 19 people, according to Aviation Week Defense Editor Steve Trimble .

Cal Thomas: Biden Says He'll Fight COVID, But It Was Obama-Biden Who Set Us Up for Disaster

If you watched last week’s virtual Democratic convention, you heard about an America with which you might not be familiar.

Speaker after speaker portrayed America as a failing nation full of misery, poverty and angst that only they can make better.

On his radio program last week, Rush Limbaugh reminded listeners what the fight for the future of America is about. He played an excerpt from Donald Trump’s inaugural address on Jan. 20, 2017:

When he was vice president, Biden and President Obama had a chance to get out in front of the pandemic, which they now blame on Trump. Instead, they did nothing to replenish the stockpile of masks and other needed protective equipment.

As a USA Today story put it: “… according to NIH, the stockpile’s resources were also used during hurricanes Alex, Irene, Isaac and Sandy. Flooding in 2010 in North Dakota also called for stockpile funds to be deployed. The 2014 outbreaks of the Ebola virus and botulism, as well as the 2016 outbreak of the Zika virus, continued to significantly tax the stockpile with no serious effort from the Obama administration to replenish the fund.”

Postal Service kills off money-making program to prevent Christian scene on stamps

image from static.wnd.comThe U.S. Postal Service has decided to kill a customized stamp program that was generating revenue to avoid having to allow religious messages.

"This is hypocrisy at its worst," said Kelly Shackelford, the chief counsel for First Liberty Institute. "It is outrageous that the U.S. Postal Service would end a steady source of revenue that raised millions of dollars just because someone might choose a religious image on a stamp."

First Liberty, representing a woman who wanted to create a Nativity-themed stamp, sued to strike the restriction in U.S. District Court in Texas. The complaint argued the U.S. Supreme Court has held such categorical exclusion of religious content as viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment.


MORE LIES: UK Will Publish 3 Separate COVID Death Reports After Serial 'Over-Exaggerating'

CoronaplannedemicFor months now, countries around the world have been publicizing ominous “coronavirus trackers” that count up to grim “milestones,” including the numbers of cases and deaths.

Now, England is changing how it does one metric: the daily death count.

According to The Telegraph, Matt Hancock, Britain’s health secretary, ordered a review of how daily fatality statistics were reported after scientists noted that deaths were being “over-exaggerated.”

Experts at Oxford University revealed that deaths were added to the coronavirus death count even if the decedent tested positive for the virus weeks or months ago, and even in cases where it was clear the virus was not a contributing factor.

“Under the previous system, anyone who has ever tested positive for the virus in England was automatically counted as a coronavirus death when they died, even if the death was from a car accident,” The Telegraph reported.


‘This is no longer a debate’: Florida sheriff bans deputies, visitors from wearing masks

Should anyone challenge a deputy about wearing a mask, Woods wrote, “politely and professionally tell them I am not required to wear a mask nor will I, per the Order of the Sheriff.”

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods prohibited his deputies from wearing masks at work. His order, which also applies to visitors to the sheriff’s office, carves out an exception for officers in some locations, including hospitals, and when dealing with people who are high-risk or suspected of having the novel coronavirus.

In an email to the sheriff’s department shared with The Washington Post, Woods disputed the idea that masks are a consensus approach to battling the pandemic.

“We can debate and argue all day of why and why not. The fact is, the amount of professionals that give the reason why we should, I can find the exact same amount of professionals that say why we shouldn’t,” Woods wrote in the email, which was first reported by the Ocala Star-Banner.

Woods is among the first law enforcement officials to outright ban masks for his deputies, though.

He issued the order as Marion County and its largest city, Ocala, are mired in a politically charged debate over a mandatory mask rule. The Ocala City Council passed an emergency mask order last week, but Mayor Kent Guinn (R) vetoed it, citing in part a refusal by Ocala Police Chief Greg Graham to enforce the rule.

“My chief and I have talked about it. We will never write a fine. We’re just not going to do it,” Guinn told the Sky 97.3 FM on Monday.

The city council plans to meet Wednesday to consider overriding the veto, the Star-Banner reported.

Woods, meanwhile, told his deputies on Tuesday to stop wearing masks in most cases. While officers can still mask up in areas including the courthouse and county jail, they must immediately take off the face coverings afterward. Deputies working special events are also forbidden from wearing masks, Woods said.

All visitors to sheriff’s department buildings will be asked to take off their masks in the lobby, Woods said, linking that rule to the ongoing protests against police brutality.

“In light of the current events when it comes to the sentiment and/or hatred toward law enforcement in our country today, this is being done to ensure there is clear communication and for identification purposes of any individual walking into a lobby,” he wrote.

The sheriff argued working mask-free hasn’t led to a spike of infections in his 900-person department. “Since the beginning of this pandemic the operation of this office has not changed and no wearing of masks has been put in place,” he said.

Rape Suspect Murders Accuser After Being Released from Jail Due to COVID

An alleged rapist who was let out of jail early amid fears he might contract the coronavirus while behind bars is accused of murdering his victim last week in Virginia.

Ibrahm E. Bouaichi was released from jail in Alexandria, where he was being held on charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation and kidnapping, The Washington Post reported.

Bouaichi, 33, had been ordered to be held in jail without bond after allegedly committing the crimes against Karla DominguezDominguez in October 2019.

His attorneys argued that the coronavirus posed a danger to both him and them and that he should be granted bond.

When asking for bond, the attorneys claimed that “social distancing and proper disinfecting measures are impossible while incarcerated,” The Post reported.

Part of the condition of his release was that he remain under house arrest at his residence in Maryland, which he could only leave in order to meet with his legal team about the rape accusation.

But according to police in Alexandria, Bouaichi did not stay isolated in his home.

They say he instead returned to Dominguez’s home on July 29 and shot and killed her.

Coffee giant Starbucks has designed a Black Lives Matter shirt for employees – the only problem is they’re produced in Haiti by black workers who routinely suffer workers’ rights abuses.

The new design includes an image of protest signs with slogans such as, “No Justice, No Peace,” “Unity!” and, “It’s not a moment, it’s a movement,” a quote from the musical “Hamilton.”

The front of the shirt features the BLM communist fist symbol, complete with fingernail polish, presumably a nod to the Black Trans Lives Matter movement.   MORE>>>>

Both the prosecutors and the defenders of four Minneapolis police officers charged with murder in the case of George Floyd undoubtedly will present segments of the disturbing, leaked bodycam footage published by to make their case.

The video shows rookie officer Thomas Lane approaching Floyd's SUV on May 25 and knocking on the driver's window. Lane ordered Floyd to show his hands, and when Floyd didn't comply, the officer drew his weapon.

The transcript from the body camera worn by officer Kueng already has been published by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Trump signs order barring illegals from census count

(WASHINGTON TIMES) -- President Trump signed an executive action on Tuesday to prevent illegal immigrants from being included in the 2020 census for congressional apportionment, saying the U.S. shouldn’t give political power “to people who should not be here at all.”

The president said for the purposes of determining the number of House lawmakers from each state, it will be U.S. policy “to exclude from the apportionment base aliens who are not in a lawful immigration status.”

He signed the order in the Oval Office without a ceremony or the media present.
