    Secret Service agents rushed President Donald Trump to a White House bunker on Friday night as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the executive mansion, some of them throwing rocks and tugging at police barricades. Trump spent nearly an hour in the bunker, which was designed for use in emergencies like terrorist attacks, according to a Republican close to the White House who was not authorized to publicly discuss private matters and spoke on condition of anonymity. The account was confirmed by an administration official who also on condition of anonymity. The abrupt decision by the agents underscored the rattled mood...

  • Films to watch this Memorial Day weekend

    05/23/2020 6:44:39 PM PDT · by MAGA2017 · 72 replies
    Memorial Day activities, gatherings and parades may not be possible in your area due to the Coronavirus shutdown. We can still display the U.S. flag and honor the fallen at cemeteries. Two of my favorites films are The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) starring Fredric March, Dana Andrews, Teresa Wright and Harold Russell and The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1953) with William Holden and Grace Kelly. The he Bridges at Toko-Ri ends with the memorable line, “Where do we get such men?” What patriotic films do you enjoy watching?

    Obama wanted to systematically change America, well, keep electing people like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and it will happen. But this change won’t be good for the real Americans! Obama might be gone but his legacy lives on. We all know that we are a country that is based on freedom and diversity but the left has gone too far! Everyone should express their religion as long as they don’t interfere with our way of living. Culver City is the latest city that has to put up with the enormously loud Islamic call to prayer 5 times a day...

    A sharp escalation in tit-for-tat retributions between China and the United States marks a deeply uncertain moment in relations between the two countries, already under strain from a longstanding trade dispute and a fierce debate over international use of Chinese technology. Both countries have scrambled over the last week to shape the international narrative surrounding both the inception and response to the COVID-19 virus. Trump began resolutely referring to the disease as the “Chinese virus,” brushing aside concerns about whether the phrase is racist and will incite unnecessary anger inside China. Trump, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and Secretary of...

    It looks, at first, like one of a zillion unfunny video clips that now circulate on the internet: “Once Upon a Virus” features cheap animation, cheesy music, and sarcastic dialogue between China—represented by a Lego terra-cotta warrior with a low, masculine voice—and the United States, represented by a Lego Statue of Liberty with a high, squeaky voice. They “speak” in short sentences: “We discovered a new virus,” says the warrior. “So what?” says the Statue of Liberty. “It’s dangerous,” says the warrior. “It’s only a flu,” says Statue of Liberty. “Wear a mask,” says the warrior. “Don’t wear a mask,”...

    The first flight of NASA astronauts from U.S. soil in nearly nine years finally has a launch date: May 27. The mission will launch astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station on a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft in a final test flight for NASA. The mission, Demo-2, will mark NASA's first crew launch from American soil since the agency's space shuttle fleet retired in July 2011. Liftoff is set for 4:32 p.m. EDT (2032 GMT) from historic Launch Pad 39A, the same site used for NASA's Apollo and shuttle missions.

    Last month, the media jumped on the news that the United States had more confirmed cases of the coronavirus than any other nation. That was bogus on two fronts. First, U.S. intelligence agencies believe that China is lying about its true numbers, and reports from inside the country tell of crematoriums working around the clock and people being paid off to keep quiet.Second, the United States does not lead the world in coronavirus cases per capita—which is the best way to compare how the pandemic is being contained in each country. For much of the pandemic, Italy has been...

    The Dan Bongino Show ^ | 04/09/2020 | Matt Palumbo
    It’s amusing to see the media lying with statistics, especially when they’re criticized President Trump for presenting them exactly the way they are now. When President Donald Trump began claiming that the U.S. led the world in coronavirus testing, liberal pundits were quick to point out that you’d have to adjust for population to make such a claim. Fair enough. President Trump did clarify at least once that he was talking about total tests, not per-capita when later making the claim.Yet now the same people in the media who criticized Trump for not measuring tests on a per-capita basis are...

    Chinese manufacturers of medical masks are cashing in on the coronavirus pandemic that started in their country. They are seeing profits spike as the global demand for masks and other medical equipment has reached a fever pitch. Nearly a fifth of mask manufacturers in the country only jumped into the business after January, the Financial Times reported, citing official data. “A mask machine is a real cash printer,” Shi Xinghui, a sales manager of an N95 mask manufacturer in China, told Agence France-Presse. “The profit of a mask now is at least several cents compared to less than one in...

    A SCIENTIST from Netflix documentary series Pandemic says his team has discovered a potential coronavirus cure. The COVID 19 infected at least 800,000 and killed nearly 39,000 globally. In the U.S. we have 165,482 cases and 3,186 deaths. It seems that Americans will come to the rescue yet again. The bioengineer Dr. Jacob Glanville said his California-based team has been working around the clock trying to come up with a drug to beat Covid-19. And yesterday he announced they might just have found one. CBS8 in San Diego reported: A California scientist and his team say they have found a potential...

    Since the advent of coronavirus, America has had little time or energy for, or interest in anything else. We try to keep up with the latest mortality rates, the number of infected, the spread, and all the other moving parts associated with the virus, and I do mean moving parts because the situation changes so rapidly, sometimes on an hourly basis. Well now, we at least have a plan of action and as painful as it may be, it seems the only meaningful path we have open to us. I have decided to shelter in place for the next three...

    At the moment in the U.S., we have 7,568 Coronavirus cases, 117 deaths and 106 recovered. The mortality rate for those two sets of numbers is between 1.6% and 2%. Wuhan Corona Virus (COVID19) is a legitimate health concern, but it is no cause for panic or irrational hysteria. It is not the 21st Century equivalent of the Black Death.’ At least not in our country, we have state of the art medicine and hospitals as well as a team of doctors that are well trained. A new study found that 86% of coronavirus cases are asymptomatic. The carriers have...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States waged a series of precision air strikes on Thursday against an Iran-backed militia in Iraq that it blamed for a major rocket attack a day earlier that killed two American troops and a 26-year-old British soldier. The U.S. strikes appeared limited in scope and narrowly tailored, targeting five weapons storage facilities used by Kataib Hezbollah militants, including stores of weaponry for past attacks on U.S.-led coalition troops, the Pentagon said. In a statement, Iraq’s military said the U.S. air strikes hit four locations in Iraq that housed formal Iraqi police and military units, in...
