    A photo of the leading candidate for mayor of Portland, Ore., has resurfaced showing her wearing a skirt patterned with the faces of famous Communist dictators. Sarah Iannarone — who, like all other candidates in the race, is unaffiliated with a political party — can be seen in the photo, shared earlier this week by independent journalist Andy Ngo, wearing a skirt covered in the faces of Che Guevara, Mao Zedong and Joseph Stalin. Iannarone is beating incumbent Mayor Ted Wheeler in the race, which uses a nonpartisan voting system in local elections, by upward of 11 points, according to...

  • LA Mayor Will Cut Power, Water To Homes And Businesses That Disobey Him

    L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he ordered the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to cut off the water and electricity to any homes, venues, or businesses in violation of COVID-19 safety measures. In April, Garcetti enacted a similar order that applied to any non-essential businesses that defied his “Safer at Home” mandate. The announcement comes just days after Los Angeles police responded to a “gang related” shooting at a large house party in Beverly Crest. According to Garcetti, this order will help limit people’s right to assemble. “We’ve been clear from the beginning that getting together in...

    Frustrated by Gov. Tom. Wolf’s latest COVID-19 restrictions on the food service industry, restaurant owners in central Pennsylvania are armed for a fight. Representatives from dozens of establishments gathered earlier today at Bonefish Grille in Lower Allen Township to express their dissatisfaction with the governor and his recent mandates. In the coming days, they plan to spread word about a petition demanding change. “How can one person have this much power? How can one person go across our constitution, stomp on it and never look back? And there’s nothing we can do? He has too much power,” said organizer Matt...

    Bars and restaurants in New York City that receive three “strikes” for failing to enforce social distancing will be forced to close, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday. In addition, bars and restaurants across the state will be allowed to serve alcohol only to patrons also ordering food, and walk-up bar service will not be allowed. The governor announced the restrictions after numerous reports of compliance issues. “There is significant evidence of failure to comply,” Cuomo said during a conference call with reporters. “It’s wrong, it’s dangerous, it’s selfish, it’s unacceptable. It’s also illegal.”

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he would compel Americans to wear masks in public if elected president. In an interview with Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA, Biden said that he would use federal power to “mandate” masks. Q: I know you have been critical of the president’s handling of the pandemic in the past. But let’s look ahead. If you became president tomorrow, what would you do differently regarding the pandemic and getting these surging cases now under control? Biden: I would go back to making sure that everybody had masks, that you had PPE [personal protective equipment]...

    KIM JONG-UN's sister is taking a leading role in a new, more hard-line pressure campaign against South Korea - highlighting what analysts say is a substantive policy role that goes beyond being her brother's assistant. Believed to be in her early 30s, Kim Yo Jong is the only close relative of the North Korean leader to play a public role in politics. Kim Yo Jung has moved to the forefront since her brother’s mysterious disappearance last month. And now she has unleashed a brutal attack on neighbours South Korea, just after the rogue state severed contact with Seoul. Kim Yo-jong's...

    Gregg Opelka has an opinion piece in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, Marxist Economic Policy—as in Groucho, in which he exposes the unintended consequences of the country’s ongoing Wuhan Cooties economic policy of shutdown and compensation: We’re all Marxists now. Not Karl, Groucho. There’s a famous sketch in “Animal Crackers” (1930) in which Groucho (as Captain Spaulding) quizzes Chico (Signor Emanuel Ravelli) on how much money the band gets paid. “What do you fellas get an hour?” Groucho asks. “For playing we get $10 an hour,” Chico replies. Groucho presses: “I see. What do you get for not playing?” “For...

    Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed another Executive Order extending Michigan’s stay-home order until June 12. “While the data shows that we are making progress, we are not out of the woods yet. If we’re going to lower the chance of a second wave and continue to protect our neighbors and loved ones from the spread of this virus, we must continue to do our part by staying safer at home,” said Governor Whitmer. “If we open too soon, thousands more could die and our hospitals will get overwhelmed. While we finally have more protective equipment like masks, we can’t run...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday that the Big Apple’s beaches will be open for Memorial Day weekend — but warned there won’t be a whole lot of fun in the sun allowed. “You can walk on the beach. You can hang out on the beach, but do it in a manner that is consistent with everything we’ve been talking about,” de Blasio said. “You go out for the amount of time you need, then you get back home.” With no lifeguards on duty, de Blasio said, beachgoers can forget about one of the main attractions — hitting the waves....

    I won't sit back and watch residents who live in counties under Stay at Home orders get sick because local leaders cannot see the risks of #COVID19 and push to reopen prematurely. Today I am announcing consequences for counties that do not abide by the law to remain closed. Non-compliant counties won't be eligible for federal stimulus discretionary funds. Instead, those funds will be allocated to counties working to stop the spread of #COVID19. Businesses should know that opening in counties that don’t abide by the law will potentially jeopardize their business liability insurance or the protections it provides. Dine-in...

    New Jersey is still “a number of weeks away” from starting to reopen from the near lockdown restrictions to slow the spread the coronavirus, Gov. Phil Murphy said Sunday morning. Murphy also said he is still deciding whether the state will reopen as a whole or whether it could be a regional approach. New Jersey has “suffered an extraordinary toll and loss of life," Murphy said while appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, after the show’s host noted the death toll from COVID-19 has surpassed the combined total number of people in the state who died fighting in Vietnam,...

    Fox News' Tucker Carlson sounded off on Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Thursday night and accused her of engaging in a "weird arbitrary fascism." "When the coronavirus hit Michigan in force last month, Whitmer had no clue what to do. So, she responded with a mixture of comical ineptitude and a weird kind of arbitrary fascism," Carlson said. "She banned the sale of carpets and paint and potted plants. She told people they couldn't fish or go to church or drive alone to their own homes. But at the same time Whitmer kept liquor stores, weed shops lotto kiosks open...
