  • DC protests continue for 5th day after controversial police action

    Protesters continued to gather Tuesday around D.C. for a fifth-straight day in response to the killing of George Floyd under Minneapolis police custody last week. A sizable crowd of protesters returned near the White House before the 7 p.m. curfew, a day after law enforcement officials had dispersed demonstrators using forcible methods that are still under scrutiny by local leaders. The curfew lasts until 6 a.m. Wednesday; D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said she doesn’t intend to extend it. An organizer of Tuesday’s Lafayette Square protest is encouraging participants to ignore the curfew.

    Reports and rumors that groups bent on rioting and violence in Coeur d’Alene brought out men and women with guns on Monday determined to stop them if they arrive. Dan Carson was patrolling Sherman Avenue with an AR-12 automatic 12-gauge across his chest, an AR-15 strapped to his back, two 9mm handguns holstered and a .38 special, too. “I heard there are some people on the way who shouldn’t be here,” he said early Monday evening. Those people, he said, were Antifa and Proud Boys, militant far-left and far-right groups. Carson said he was in Spokane Sunday night helping protect...

    The New York Times faced an overwhelming backlash from Democratic lawmakers and liberal members of the media over its front-page headline that may have been too favorable towards President Trump. During a Rose Garden address on Monday, Trump threatened to use military force to quell the riots that have broken out following the death of George Floyd if governors and mayors don't take enough action. The Times print editor Tom Jolly previewed the front of Tuesday's paper attempting to summarize the day's events.

    MOSCOW, May 31 (Reuters) - Russia's space agency criticised U.S. President Donald Trump's "hysteria" about the first spaceflight of NASA astronauts from U.S. soil in nine years, but also said on Sunday it was pleased there was now another way to travel into space. SpaceX, the private rocket company of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, on Saturday launched two Americans into orbit from Florida en route to the International Space Station (ISS), a landmark mission that ended Russia's monopoly on flights there. Trump, who observed the launch, said the United States had regained its place as the world's leader in space,...

    The comments – unearthed from a 2011 Sichuan University speech – demonstrate either a fundamental misunderstanding of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), or outright collusion with it. The former veep stated at the time: “In order to cement this robust partnership, we have to go beyond close ties between Washington and Beijing, which we’re working on every day, go beyond it to include all levels of government, go beyond it to include classrooms and laboratories, athletic fields and boardrooms.”

    Even as virtually every country's economy has struggled in recent months amid state-imposed lockdowns intended to combat the coronavirus pandemic, some disaffected progressives are convinced that the problem is capitalism -- reportedly sending membership in the Democratic Socialists of America [DSA] surging by 10,000 since March, for a still-paltry total of 66,000 members overall. The coronavirus outbreak originated in China, a communist country, and went on to ravage several European countries with public health care systems, including Italy. With Bernie Sanders out of the presidential race, though, many socialists increasingly have sought a cause to support. They apparently found it...

    On the eve of the Nevada caucuses in February, Bernie Sanders and his supporters were feeling invincible. “I've got news for the Democratic establishment,” he declared on Twitter on Feb. 21, the day before he went on to a landslide win in the Nevada caucuses. “They can't stop us.” Since then, not only did the “establishment” stop Sanders - it stamped out the candidacies of a string of left-wing insurgents, leaving the progressive movement reeling and in a state of despair. Three highly-touted liberal House candidates - Jessica Cisneros in Texas, Robert Emmons in Illinois, and Morgan Harper in Ohio...

    Houses of Worship: The letter states the county’s and the city’s order attempts to restrict essential services, including those provided by houses of worship. Contact Tracing: The letter states that Austin’s order “only seems to recommend for these restaurants to track their employees and customers, it forces restaurants into submission by threatening to release the names of restaurants who do not comply.” It goes on to say the city’s “Orwellian order raises privacy concerns and s also likely superseded by the governor’s order.” Masks: The letter states that the order issued in Austin says “all person over the age of...

    ATLANTA, GA—CNN is refusing to air President Trump's press briefings, calling them propaganda and fake news. Instead, the station will be broadcasting the far more fair, balanced, and accurate daily takes by President Xi Jinping. "We don't want to broadcast Trump's propaganda, so we'll turn to a far more accurate source," said Brian Stelter. "We pretty much were already repeating the Chinese government's stances word for word, so now we can go straight to the horse's mouth." Financial costs were also a factor here, according to insiders. Legacy media has been hit hard by the economic shutdown. CNN has had...
  • Magazine doesn't even try to hide it, pushes socialism on teens: 'It's back'

    With the rise of Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and many other leftist politicians, the draw to socialism has taken hold of many American teens. A new article published Friday titled "What Is Democratic Socialism and Why Is It Growing More Popular in the U.S.?" and written by Samuel Arnold, an associate professor of political theory at Texas Christian University, pushed the growingly popular concept of "democratic socialism" to readers of Teen Vogue, the online magazine on a mission to be the "young person's guide to saving the world." After claiming, "Socialism: It’s back," the article initially attempts to posture as...

    The price of oil futures has collapsed catastrophically. In fact, the prices collapsed into negative territory in the near term. This bizarre situation, prompted by lack of consumer demand and lack of storage facility, led the irrepressible Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to tweet: "You absolutely love to see it. This along with record low-interest rates means it's the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet." This tweet was too dumb even for her – an extraordinary bar, given her past commentary – and she deleted it. But she then reiterated the point in...

    Former Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said during the 2008 financial crisis that lawmakers should “never let a crisis go to waste,” and many Democratic lawmakers appear to be heeding that advice -- using the coronavirus pandemic as a jumping-off point to renew calls for a historic expansion of government. Emanuel repeated his mantra again last month, this time in connection with the new crisis. “Start planning for the future. This has to be the last pandemic that creates an economic depression. We're going to have more pandemics, but this has to be the last economic depression,”...

Chinese state-controlled media outlets have been posting Noah’s jokes about the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak – and audiences eager to bash the U.S. response have been loving them, The New York Times reported. “Trevor has the correct value system,” one commenter wrote on social media, according to the report.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced support on Thursday for the embattled World Health Organization (W.H.O.) while speaking to fellow Group of Seven (G7) leaders after President Donald Trump halted U.S. funding for the United Nations-backed organization. German government spokesperson Steffen Seibert said Merkel reiterated her call for “strong and coordinated international response” to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and expressed “full support to the W.H.O.”

    Democrats in Congress are more supportive of China than they are of protecting American businesses, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, said Thursday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends," Roy said that his Democratic colleagues seem to want to side with China's Communist leaders instead of the American people on the argument over the World Health Organization's response to the deadly coronavirus pandemic. "And we are seeing that right now unfold, [as] my Democratic colleagues are holding up $250 billion necessary for small businesses," he continued.

    In the aftermath of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ abandonment of his campaign, many members and supporters of the Democratic Socialists of America now see through the DSA’s cynical and duplicitous role as an accomplice of the Democratic Party. For years, even preceding the 2016 election, the DSA trumpeted Sanders as the fearless leader of a “political revolution” that would transform the Democratic Party into an instrument of far-reaching social change. But Sanders has slunk out of the fight for the nomination in a manner that invites contempt. There was nothing of an old fighter’s last hurrah. The aged senator did...

    Addis Ababa (AFP) - The chairman of the African Union Commission on Wednesday defended the World Health Organization (WHO) and its leadership from attacks by US President Donald Trump, who on Tuesday threatened to cut funding for the UN body. "Surprised to learn of a campaign by the US govt against WHO's global leadership," Moussa Faki Mahamat said in a Twitter post. "The African Union fully supports WHO and Dr Tedros," he added, referring to the WHO's director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, an Ethiopian. Faki was later joined by Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Namibian President Hage Geingob, who took to...

    Panic-buying has erupted across China amid fears of a food shortage due to the Wuhan coronavirus, reports stated on Thursday, indicating that Chinese citizens are ignoring the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) statements urging people not to stockpile food. On Thursday, a resident of Ezhou, a city in Hubei Province, told the anti-communist publication Epoch Times that locals have been rushing to hoard rice for at least the past two days. According to the newspaper, social media reports indicate that residents are also stockpiling food in other cities in Hubei, such as Huanggang, Yichang, and Wuhan — the epicenter of the...
