    According to a Fox News report, $80 million in stimulus funds intended to help small businesses struggling through coronavirus economic hardship have gone instead to Planned Parenthood, the multi-billion dollar abortion business. Under the CARES Act’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Congress allocated $349 billion in federal funds to provide assistance to small businesses with fewer than 500 employees. According to the Department of the Treasury, funds may be used to pay up to eight weeks of payroll costs including benefits” as well as “interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.” In August 2019, Planned Parenthood rejected Title X federal funding after...

    Two hairstylists at the same salon in Springfield, Missouri, potentially directly exposed around 147 people to the CCP virus after working with clients while displaying symptoms of COVID-19, officials said. The Springfield-Greene Health Department announced Saturday that a second worker at Great Clips tested positive for the virus. That stylist, who was not named, potentially exposed 56 people to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus while working between May 16 to May 20, said the local health agency. She was “experiencing very mild symptoms but potentially infectious,” officials said. “At this time, this is the only other positive result we...
  • McCaskill: There's 'No HINT of Corruption' in Obama-Biden Days, Trump Will 'Lie'

    "He wants to get to the point where they’re chanting “Lock them up” at his rallies about Obama and Biden, who have done nothing illegal. Nothing, nothing, not even close! Not a hint of corruption during eight years of Barack Obama. No wholesale firing of inspector generals. So I really think it’s startling that he’s so panicked that he felt the need to go down there to shore up the Republicans, you guys got to get tougher and lie better because that’s essentially what his message was yesterday.”

    He was the subject of a recent book, “The Enigma of Clarence Thomas,” which led to a flurry of articles and book reviews on his life and legal thought. A new biographical documentary, made by the conservative filmmaker Michael Pack, airs Monday on PBS. For the project, the justice spoke to filmmakers for 30 hours — an astounding feat for a jurist who once went 10 years without asking a question from the bench. “He would have never said, ‘Gee whiz, I should be an icon,’” said Helgi Walker, a lawyer at the firm Gibson Dunn who clerked for Justice...

    Missouri Gov. Mike Parson defended the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic on Saturday, arguing that the president and vice president "did nothing but almost move mountains for the entire country." "When you think about where we were at 60 days ago -- to do what they did to get that CARES package out as early as they did, to almost retool the manufacturing across the United States to make PPE [personal protective equipment] supply for every state," the Republican governor said on "Cavuto Live." "To be critical of that being done and the federal government to get all...

    A Missouri man who was planning to bomb a Kansas City-area hospital killed himself in March as FBI agents served a probable cause arrest warrant, the FBI said Friday. An autopsy determined that FBI agents shot Timothy Wilson, 36, of Raymore, Missouri, in the upper and lower extremities on March 24 on a street in Belton, Missouri, but that his cause of death was a self-inflicted wound to the head, the agency said. The FBI didn’t say if Wilson shot himself before or after the agents shot him. Investigators said Wilson was distressed by the government’s response to the coronavirus...

    Republican-led efforts to hold China accountable for the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus are being watched closely by the communist regime. State-run media reported Thursday that Republican lawmakers will “face severe consequences” for speaking out against China, pursuing lawsuits, and pushing “anti-China” legislation. “Republicans who have been groundlessly accusing China and inflaming the 'holding China accountable' political farce will face severe consequences, sources said, noting that the aftermath will also impact the upcoming November elections, while business and trade between Missouri and China will be further soured,” the Global Times, a branch of the Communist Party of China's People's Daily,...

    A man accused of setting a fire that destroyed an Islamic center in southeast Missouri has been charged with a federal hate crime, the U.S. Attorney’s office in St. Louis said Tuesday. A federal grand jury indicted 42-year-old Nicholas J. Proffitt in the April fire that destroyed the Cape Girardeau Islamic Center, the office said in a statement. Proffitt is charged with damaging religious property because of the property’s religious character, using fire to commit a federal felony, and damaging a building used in interstate commerce through use of fire.

    After initially pointing out that some of Whitmer’s critics felt her policy “violated [their] constitutional rights,” Melvin launched into a rant against the demonstrators and implied a racial double standard in how authorities treated the protests: "I want to talk to you about these demonstrators that I saw over the weekend in your state capitol, a number of them armed. I remember vividly a few years ago being in Ferguson, Missouri and protestors there, many of them protesting, they weren’t armed, they were referred to as thugs. These men and women, many of them carrying flags, walking around with their...

    We picked up a virus from China, as everyone knows. But that may not be the only “virus” we have absorbed from them. As we’ve previously reported, we also have some cities across the country employing Chinese drones to spy on people who may not be social distancing. Should we even ask what the Chinese get out of that “donation” to our police forces? But that’s not all. Have we also picked up their “snitch culture” in the process? In China, in every apartment building and in every block, there’s always at least one person who is the local Communist...

    A conservative law firm is calling a new order in Kansas City, Missouri, "Nazi-like" for requiring churches to "surveil, track, and spy" on anyone who attends an in-person service. Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas issued the 10/10/10 rule in effect May 5, ordering that nonessential businesses, like churches, can have 10 people inside and 50 people outside as long as they practice social distancing. They also must record the information of anyone who spends more than 10 minutes inside. In addition, nonessential businesses can operate at 10 percent maximum capacity. The order states that by recording names and contact information,...

St. Joseph is an hour north of Kansas City in a rural farming area. 373 employees and contract workers at Triumph Foods in Buchanan County, Missouri, have tested positive for coronavirus.

    A Kansas City phased reopening guideline requiring churches to keep “lists” of attendees, has alarmed many who see it as an infringement on religious liberty and privacy. In the policy issued by Mayor Quinton Lucas, houses of worship are treated with the same restrictions as “non-essential” businesses in terms of keeping records of who attends a service, or even anyone who enters the building. “Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined Nazi-like measures designed to surveil, track and spy upon what was once a FREE American people,” Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver said. “Yet that is exactly what...

    Governors and mayors across the nation have claimed that their emergency powers allow them to ban large groups during the coronavirus pandemic. They don't want groups gathering in malls, movie theaters or even churches, despite the constitutional protection of religious rights. Now one official is moving into extreme territory, demanding churches provide him with the names, addresses and telephone numbers of anyone who shows up to worship. The move by Quinton Lucas, the mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, already is attracting the attention of Liberty Counsel, which has been defending churches amid the coronavirus lockdowns.

    Kansas City, Missouri, officials are now requiring every church to submit a list of members and attendees along with their names, addresses and telephone numbers to city officials for tracking and surveillance purposes.I am running out of adjectives to describe how completely insane the tyrannical abuses launched by state governors and local officials against pastors and churches are becoming. It is as if these leaders never bothered to so much as glance at the Constitution they swore to uphold and defend. They seem to be governing from some make-believe, dystopian viewpoint. Yesterday, we received a desperate call from a Kansas...

    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt criticized China for the death toll in his state in a petition filed today. Missouri has become the first state to file a lawsuit against the Chinese government over its handling of the coronavirus — claiming that misinformation from Beijing during the early stages of the outbreak cost some residents their lives. In a petition filed in a Show-Me State federal court on Tuesday, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt claims that Beijing’s “campaign of deceit” around COVID-19 is to blame for the virus’ death toll in his state — which stood at 189 as of...

    Hundreds of protesters gathered at state capitals in North Carolina and Missouri to protest stay-at-home orders Tuesday, the latest in a wave of demonstrations against statewide restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus. The small protests featured demonstrators - many of them wearing gear promoting President Donald Trump and waving "Don't Tread on Me" and U.S. flags - who mostly opted against wearing masks and ignored social distancing guidelines that health experts say are necessary to mitigate the transmission of the highly contagious virus. The protesters decried the stay-at-home orders, which have curtailed businesses and personal freedoms, and pointed...

    EXCLUSIVE: Missouri became the first state to file a lawsuit against China on Tuesday, accusing the country of being responsible for the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and seeking damages to make up for "the enormous loss of life, human suffering, and economic turmoil" resulting from the disease. The suit in the Eastern District of Missouri follows at least seven federal class-action suits that have been filed by private groups, with one filed in Florida saying that China knew "COVID-19 was dangerous and capable of causing a pandemic, yet slowly acted, proverbially put their head in the sand, and/or covered...
