  • Hospitals can’t discharge coronavirus patients to nursing homes: Gov. Cuomo

    Patients in New York hospitals must now test negative for the coronavirus before they can be discharged to nursing homes, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday — partially reversing a policy that forced sickened seniors into facilities housing those most vulnerable. “We’re just not going to send a person who is positive to a nursing home after a hospital visit,” said Cuomo during an Albany press briefing. “Period.” The ruling partially overrides a controversial March 25 order that nursing homes cannot deny admission or readmission on the basis of a positive or suspected COVID-19 case.
  • Horowitz: Mitt Romney cluelessly exaggerates coronavirus fatality rates

    Simple arithmetic seems to be lost on the politicians, and that error is perpetuating a needless and counterproductive policy destroying our country. Politicians like Mitt Romney don’t seem to understand that the fact that there are so many infections actually makes the fatality rate of the virus remarkably low – a fact that should guide our policies going forward. The politicians keep referring to widespread outbreaks in prisons, meatpacking plants, and other semi- or fully confined areas with predominantly young populations. Then they refer to a relatively small number of fatalities anecdotally, as if this is the bubonic plague or...

    His stubborn refusal to take the coronavirus seriously may have caused thousands of deaths. America’s COVID-19 devastation is disproportionately a story of New York State’s devastation, and New York State’s devastation is overwhelmingly a story of New York City’s devastation. There’s a case to be made that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio is the single individual in the United States who is most to blame for the catastrophic loss of human life. I refer you to a grueling investigation by Charles Duhigg in the New Yorker that painstakingly compares the responses to the outbreak in Seattle and New...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed Friday evening that 50,000 Americans died because the Senate failed to remove President Donald Trump from office during the impeachment trial in February. (snip) Schiff told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: There is one thing that, really, I have to say haunts me from the trial and it was before that snippet you showed where we knew we had to answer the question to the senators, okay, essentially, house managers, you’ve proved him guilty [sic] (emphasis mine), does he really need to be removed after all? we have an election in nine months....
  • Worried about offending Trump, 'flaky' Trudeau 'humiliated' fellow leaders during [2017] TPP trade talks: former Aussie PM

    ... After discussions with each country’s trade ministers, the leaders were under the impression that all that was left was to shake hands and smile for the cameras. For Vietnam, which was hosting the conference, the new deal was set to be a major diplomatic coup. The leaders noticed that Abe and Trudeau were late for the meeting and some murmuring broke out. Abe soon came striding into the meeting looking “very flustered,” according to Turnbull. When Turnbull asked him what was going on, Abe said, “Justin won’t sign. He’s pulling out.” Asked if Trudeau was trying to scuttle the...

  • Bernie Sanders’ Political Movement Not Sold on Biden Despite Endorsement

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may be endorsing Joe Biden for the Democrat nomination, but the political movement that powered the Vermont septuagenarian’s campaign is unready to do the same. On Monday, shortly after Sanders threw his backing behind the former vice president, the senator’s one-time campaign spokeswoman, Briahna Joy Gray, announced that she was not following suit. Gray, who has made no effort to conceal disagreement with other high profile national Democrats, asserted she was unable to support Biden because of his unwillingness to adopt progressive stances on the economy and healthcare.

    Justin Trudeau has today blamed the US 'escalation' in the Middle East for the Iranian shoot-down of a passenger jet in an extraordinary swipe at Donald Trump. Echoing what Iranian officials have said, Trudeau said the dozens of Canadian crash victims would be 'home with their families' but for the tensions started by the US killing of Qassem Soleimani. The Canadian PM said the international community had to 'manage the tensions in the region that are brought about by US actions'. After initially denying involvement, Iran admitted on Saturday that it had shot down the jet in error just hours...

    Here’s my New Year 2020 gift to the Democrat Party. This is a teachable moment. I’m going to teach you how real Americans actually think. Because Democrats are clearly A) clueless and delusional, or B) so anti-American and pure Marxist in their thinking, they have no ability to even fake patriotism anymore. Or C) they’re just blind, deaf and really, really dumb. What does this stem from? Well first is “group think.” Democrats live in a bubble. They actually believe the lies, fraud and fake news spouted by Democrat politicians, CNN, MSNBC, PBS and the mainstream media. They are never...

    Democratic presidential hopefuls condemned the US airstrike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassim Soleimani on Thursday night, with Joe Biden calling the attack “a hugely escalatory move” in the region. The former vice president, in a statement, conceded that the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force deserved to face justice, but warned, “President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.” “He deserved to be brought to justice for his crimes against American troops and thousands of innocents throughout the region. He supported terror and sowed chaos,” Biden said of Soleimani, who was killed in the strike at Baghdad’s...

  • Americans under 30 more likely to resent the ultra-rich and support violence against the wealthy

    Among Americans under 30, 52% say that ‘most’ rich people in the United States got rich ‘by taking advantage of other people.’ In contrast, a strong 72% majority of seniors over 65 say that most wealthy people in America ‘earned their wealth’ without exploiting people. Americans under 30 were also much more ambivalent toward capitalism and supportive of socialism. The survey found support for capitalism and socialism nearly evenly split among young Americans, with 49% saying they are favorable toward capitalism, and 50% saying they are favorable toward socialism.
  • Teens pledge not to have kids without action on climate change

    Teenagers have been bursting into the conversation surrounding climate change — passionately advocating for the planet and their future living on it. But this college student is making her activism even more personal by pledging not to have children until leaders take action. Canadian teen Emma Lim told CBS News she made the decision a few months ago not to have children in the future due to the climate crisis. "Because even though I want to have children more than almost anything, what kind of a mother would I be if I brought a baby into a world where I...

The report particularly applauded Thunberg for scolding the United States and President Trump for not doing enough to stop global warming. “A teenager from Sweden called ‘the voice of the planet’ is ready to cross the Atlantic on a mission to fight climate change....She’ll be sailing from Europe to New York to call on world...

    Five anchorwomen at NY1, one of the country’s most prominent local news channels, sued the network on Wednesday over age and gender discrimination, alleging a systematic effort by managers to force them off the air in favor of younger, less experienced hosts. The suit, filed in Federal District Court in Manhattan, portrays a newsroom at odds with the friendly image that has made NY1 a beloved institution among New Yorkers. And it publicized tensions that have long afflicted the TV news business, where older women’s careers often fade as male counterparts thrive. The plaintiffs range in age from 40...

Their photos appear below: Men abducted and killed the pretty pair. Louisa was beheaded with a small knife and suffered horribly. Here is another shot of the pair. They were obviously great friends: Moroccan authorites have arrested and now are questioning the three suspects shown below: Whether very liberal or conservative, this double murder is sad; the authorities later stated that the murderers had ISIS sympathies. What would lead such a gorgeous pair to go...
