  • Donald Trump bashes China's minuscule 'official' coronavirus death toll - and says the Communist nation is 'way ahead of the US' in fatalities as he warns Beijing will 'face consequences' for cover-up

    President Donald Trump has blasted China's official coronavirus death statistics as 'impossible' with Dr Deborah Birx concurring that Beijing failed its 'moral obligation' for transparency in the pandemic. At a White House briefing on Saturday, Dr Birx was presenting a chart with coronavirus mortality rates by country when Trump interjected, saying 'does anybody really believe this number?' Trump pointed at China at the bottom of the bar chart, showing a mortality rate of 0.33 per 100,000 population, but marked with an asterisk to indicate the unreliability of the data. China's rate is orders of magnitude below other countries, including the...
  • Who is tired of all the "We are in it together" propaganda/commercials?

    Has anyone else tired of all the ridiculous propaganda that is being thrown at us in the guise of commercials? We are all in it together, seems to be the theme. I seriously doubt that the people in these commercials are suffering and can truly empathize with the blue collar types who are really hurting. I am also tired of all the special interest stories on the news about what people are doing to cope or the crap that they are making. They are little more than propaganda too. No coverage on all the crime that is occurring. Of course,...

  • GOP heading for midterm wipeout as Blue Wave scenario gives Democrats 12-point generic ballot lead

    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    Why it's suddenly the last thing Democrats want to discuss! Something very odd but extremely significant just happened in American politics, in practically the blink of an eye. The establishment media have gone from virtual 24/7 coverage of the narrative that President Trump colluded with Russia to crickets, and they did it overnight. How far has Russia fallen off the media’s radar? So far, that, in a jaw-dropping role-reversal, it is actually the White House now pushing the story on the media. And why is the White House suddenly embracing the Russia story? Because it is now poised to boomerang...

    Seattle Times ^ | May 24, 2017 | by Danny Westneat
    Last year’s election made Seattle’s Tod Steward a minor celebrity. If by celebrity you mean “the kind that everybody hates,” he laughs. Not here, though. In Canada. The 53-year-old First Hill resident has found a small niche in Canada as the most peculiar, and certainly most elusive, species of our time. He’s Seattle’s Only Trump Voter™. OK that’s not actually a trademarked phrase, nor is it numerically true. To be precise, 32,361 Seattleites besides Steward also cast votes for Donald Trump last November. But the percentage was so historically low — only 8 percent of the city’s 385,000 votes —...

    In phone calls, meetings and cables, America’s European allies have expressed alarm to one another about Donald Trump’s public statements denying Moscow’s role in cyberattacks designed to interfere with the U.S. election. They fear the Republican nominee for president has emboldened the Kremlin in its unprecedented cybercampaign to disrupt elections in multiple countries in hopes of weakening Western alliances, according to intelligence, law enforcement and other government officials in the United States and Europe. While American intelligence officers have privately briefed Trump about Russia’s attempts to influence the U.S. election, he has publicly dismissed that information as unreliable, instead saying...

    'Unless I win, I would consider this a big, fat, beautiful--and, by the way, a very expensive--waste of time' Heading into the final days before Iowa's caucuses, Republican front-runner Donald Trump warned supporters that his months of headline-grabbing antics could be for naught if they do not show up Monday night. "You have to get out there and caucus, or we've all wasted our time," Trump said on a tarmac, speaking to supporters who stood in a cold airplane hangar for hours to see the former Apprentice star. It was a rare suggestion from the billionaire that he might not...

      Those who would rule know one thing for certain: Win the battle of ideas and you win control of everything. In an open, democratic society such as ours, freedom of speech and what John Stuart Mill called "the marketplace of ideas" are huge benefits. They enable all of us, even the most marginalized, to make our case to the public, to be heard. They allow reason to be inserted into public debate as an essential part of the checks and balances of the democratic process. This is a healthy thing, vital for our republic. But for those who...

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (BP) -- Fearful members. Declining church attendance. Concerned pastors. Uncertain futures. Despite dramatic changes in the life of many Hispanic congregations in Alabama with the new immigration law, the news isn't all bad. "A lot of people left," Carlos Gomez said of the Hispanic congregation he leads at First Baptist Church in Center Point. "I called them back and some of them returned. But I know of another ministry that is close to me here in town that had around 120, and now it has about 40." Reports of decreased attendance in Hispanic congregations are common since the...

    Americans are unimpressed with their political leaders' handling of the debt ceiling crisis, with a new CBS News poll showing a majority disapprove of all the involved parties' conduct, but Republicans in Congress fare the worst, with just 21 percent backing their resistance to raising taxes. President Obama earned the most generous approval ratings for his handling of the weeks-old negotiations, but still more people said they disapproved (48 percent) than approved (43 percent) of what he has done and said.

The contract calls for the development of "Persona Management Software" which would help the user create and manage a variety of distinct fake profiles online. The listing was discussed in recently leaked emails from the private security firm HBGary after an attack by internet activist last week.

    When we elected President Obama, Democrats made a choice to embrace the fight for change that matters. We renewed our focus on organizing alongside everyday Americans, growing more inclusive than ever before. We took on the special interests, opposed their agenda -- and we are delivering results for the people of this country. We are working to move America forward. That's why we are introducing a new look for Democrats to match this message -- a change that amplifies our focus on renewing the foundations that make this country great. We're launching an updated website, filled with innovations that will...

    Stocks rose Friday and bond prices fell after the government reported that U.S. economic growth didn't slow as much as feared. Comments from Ben Bernanke also helped send stocks higher. The Federal Reserve chairman, speaking at the central bank's annual conference, reaffirmed his outlook for economic growth next year and said the Fed was ready to take extra steps to stimulate the economy if needed. Stocks stumbled briefly after Intel Corp. lowered its revenue estimate but then resumed their upward march. The Dow Jones industrial average and other market barometers all gained more than 1 percent. The downward revision in...

    As stated in the Secure Arkansas Updates story, KARK Channel 4 did a story which attempts to merge the Arkansas Tea Party movement with racist Billy Roper. With no video or picture footage of Roper at any of the many Tea Party meetings and events across the state, KARK put a translucent picture of Roper and a Nazi Flag over a picture of Tea Party Activist at the Arkansas State Capitol. Here is a video taken during the April 15th 2010 Tea Party protest. After the National Anthem and some other announcements, a statement about the position of the Arkansas...
