    The nations top infectious disease experts on Tuesday slammed airlines planning full flights as the coronavirus continues to spread throughout the country. Several US airlines have stated theyre limiting capacity on planes to between 60 and 67 percent. But, United Airlines has not promised to leave seats empty, and American announced last week that it will drop such measures and begin filling its flights to the brim beginning Wednesday as companies try to increase revenue. Obviously that is something that is of concern. Im not sure what went into that decision making, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National...

President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation.Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of...
  • China's Latest Desperate Attempt to Distract From Its Coronavirus Malfeasance Is Truly Incredible: Condemning the U.S. for Police Violence!

    The People’s Republic of China — notorious for placing Uyghur Muslims in concentration camps and imposing extra coronavirus lockdowns on black people — is accusing the United States of America of “chronic” racism. The regime that put down the Tiananmen Square protests with tanks in 1989 is condemning the U.S. for “police violence.”The Chinese Communist Party is taking advantage of the looting, vandalism, and arson into which the protests over George Floyd’s death have devolved to distract from its heinous — and indeed racist — malfeasance of the coronavirus pandemic.“Black lives matter, their human rights need to be guaranteed,” Chinese...

    Breitbart ^ | 12/04/2019 | Ian Hanchett
    On Wednesdays broadcast of Fox News Radios Guy Benson Show, Fox News Political Analyst and co-host and columnist for the Hill Juan Williams criticized that days impeachment hearing as a distraction. Williams said, I dont think that this is informing the public about much of the facts in any way. Because I dont think we have any fact-based witnesses or evidence being introduced. So, what this is about, I think, is, you have scholars engaged in scholarly discourse with regard to whether or not what we know so far, in their opinion, rises to an impeachable offense. Thats the best...

    Democrats "can foresee" the possibility of impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report. Speaking on the Sunday political talk shows, the chairmen of three key House investigatory committees sounded open to the possibility of bringing impeachment proceedings against the president. "I can foresee that possibly coming," House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, adding that he is "not there yet" on impeachment. The report itself, Cummings said, provides Congress with an investigatory "roadmap," he said. "I think [Mueller] basically said to us as a Congress,...

    Chicago cops laid out their case against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett Thursday morning, accusing the TV star of orchestrating an elaborate hoax involving two "bogus" hate crimes -- one involving an alleged attack, and one involving a threatening letter -- all in order to get a pay raise. Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said Smollett orchestrated a "phony attack" in order to take "advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career." Johnson said at a news conference Thursday that Smollett, 36, also sent a racist and homophobic threatening letter to himself at the Fox studio lot...

    Pipe bombs were sent to several prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, setting off an intense investigation on Wednesday into whether figures vilified by the right were being targeted. From Washington to New York to Florida, where a congresswoman who is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee has her office, the authorities intercepted a wave of crudely built devices that were contained in manila envelopes. Some bomb technicians who studied photos of the device that circulated on social media suggested that the bomb sent to CNN had hallmarks of fake...

    President Donald Trump has made it clear to the State Department that he wants to accelerate the release of any remaining Hillary Clinton emails in its possession as soon as possible, according to three sources familiar with the President's thinking.

In a memo to State Department employees, Tillerson said that the department will commit more resources and...

    HILLARY CLINTON, URANIUM, AND A RUSSIAN SPY RING J. Michael Waller, writing in the Daily Caller, says that new FBI information about corruption in a Clinton-approved uranium deal with Russia raises questions about Clintons actions after the FBI broke up a deep-cover Russian spy ring in 2010. The FBI ran an elaborate and highly successful operation called Ghost Stories to monitor and rip apart a deep-cover Russian agent network. It tracked a ring of Russian spies who lived between Boston and Washington, D.C. under false identities. In 2010, thanks to the Ghost Stories operation, the FBI arrested 10 spies. According...

    In these days of controversy and political wrangling, we seem to forget that Americas woes from an economic standpoint stem from eight straight years of GDP growth hovering around an average of 2.1 percent. Yes, the United States economy is still the largest in the world, but when we look at the past two decades, Americas growth rate has dropped dramatically. In the 1950s and 60s, the average growth rate was about 4 percent. In the 70s and 80s, that dropped to around 3 percent. In the past ten years, its been around 2 percent. Since the second quarter...
