    Former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián Castro said that Congress should pass direct rental assistance to avoid a housing crisis amid the coronavirus pandemic. The CARES Act, signed in late March, included a moratorium on evictions for tenants in units with federally-backed mortgages or other assistance who were unable to pay rent, which only applies to about a fifth of renters. The rest are subject to local eviction moratoria, which have begun to expire. Castro, who served under President Obama, told NBC News that Congress should allocate $100 billion in direct housing assistance. “We should invest $100 billion...

    China said Tuesday it will retaliate after the U.S. announced it was ending the export of sensitive military items to Hong Kong in response to Beijing imposing a controversial national security law on the semi-autonomous city. China's rubber-stamp parliament formally passed the sweeping law for Hong Kong on Tuesday, which critics and many western governments fear will smother the global financial hub's freedoms and hollow out its autonomy... The State Department will end the export of all items on its controlled list to Hong Kong, which includes products ranging from advanced ammunition to military hardware that already require approval from...

    China's state news agency, Xinhua, confirmed that President Xi Jinping had now signed the security law... The law could be implemented as early as Wednesday... It comes a day before the 23rd anniversary of the handover from Britain to China - a date usually marked by pro-democracy protests. It will make criminal any act of secession, subversion of the central government, terrorism and collusion with foreign or external forces... Hong Kong's sweeping new security law is a frighteningly open-ended tool to suppress political agitation. Like similar laws on the Chinese mainland it appears that it can be manipulated to meet...
  • Soccer Team Dumps National Anthem for Song Written by Communist Sympathizer

    A semi-professional soccer team in Oklahoma will no longer play the national anthem before matches. Instead – the Tulsa Athletic will play Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land.” The Athletics are part of the National Premier Soccer League. The team says they dropped The Star Spangled Banner to create a more inclusive environment.“From our beginning, we have developed a culture of inclusion and acceptance at Tulsa Athletic,” team owner Sonny Dalesandro said in the press release. “We live in a country that allows us to freely speak our voice. We utilize this right as a club to continually try...

    China Global Television Network (CGTN) has been identified as a “long-standing weapon in Beijing’s arsenal of repression” whose raison d’ętre is “to attack designated enemies of the Communist Party,” chiefly the U.S. Headquartered in Beijing, funded by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and controlled by the regime’s Publicity Department, the outlet is inundated with anti-U.S. and anti-Trump content. As a result, CGTN was forced to register with the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) in 2019. CGTN’s international disinformation campaign – which has resulted in airing forced confessions and deeply biased coverage of Hong Kong protests – aligns with President Xi...

    SEATTLE — On June 8, Seattle police frantically loaded what they could from the east precinct onto trucks and cars. Within hours, they boarded up and abandoned the station. That night, left-wing protesters from Black Lives Matter and Antifa declared ownership of the six-block neighborhood in the middle of the Pacific Northwest’s largest city. They named their new territory the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” or CHAZ. No laws or rules applied here except for one: “No cops allowed.” During five undercover days and nights in the zone, I witnessed a continuing experiment in anarchy, chaos and brute-force criminality. In order...

    Francis made a statement from the Vatican on Sunday, praising healthcare workers in Italy's Lombardy region who stood by their patients during the pandemic's "troubled months." Lombardy was Italy's worst-affected region at the height of the pandemic. Francis later warned people to "be careful," and not to allow individualism to again become "the guiding principle of society." Francis used the health care workers as an example to make his point, saying their professionalism was "one of the pillars of [Italy]." The Pope described the medical workers as "angels." In April, he said the pandemic could be one of "nature's responses"...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is holding his final daily coronavirus briefing on Friday, capping months of press conferences in which he gave updates 7 days a week on COVID-19's spread in the state, measures to fight it, and its subsequent decline. He said Thursday he has a message for New Yorkers and people who have been watching: "We accomplished what we set out to accomplish. We needed to get across that mountain. We needed to tame the beast. We needed to control the virus, and we did." Cuomo warned Thursday that while New York has gotten virus under control...

    American Thinker ^ | 12 Jun, 2020 | Selwyn Duke
    The two destabilizing events recently occurring back-to-back, the response to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, and the George Floyd rioting, illustrate well how America is now institutionally incapable of making decisions in her own best interests. That is, the overreaction to the disease and under-reaction to the rioting reflect a country long demoralized. Moreover, if that’s not troubling enough, know that this is a state of being that usually leads to tyranny. We’d had pandemics before — ones causing more death, especially when adjusted for population — but we’d never before embraced lockdowns, a cure worse than the disease. But at...

    The first night in the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone that has formed in the wake of police giving up the week-long blockade of the East Precinct was rainy and peaceful and full of speeches from activists, agitators, poets, and socialist city council members.“I guess whatever the fuck we’re doing is effective,” one organizer identified as Magik said over a megaphone early in the night as police were still clearing the area. “They are going to move up. They are going to get everybody out of here and we are free to move through these streets and protest and march.”“Yesterday...

    After more than a week of protests against police brutality and racial injustice, Gov. Andy Beshear announced several actions Monday aimed at reducing racial inequality in Kentucky. The biggest promise by far was a pledge to make sure every black Kentuckian has health insurance. He also announced plans to provide anti-bias and other training for police officers and teachers “My commitment today is we’re going to begin an effort to cover 100 percent of our individuals in our black and african american communities,” Beshear said. “Everybody. We’re going to be putting dollars behind it, we’re going to have a multifaceted...

    The former first lady said she, too, is feeling “scared,” “confused” and “angry” about racial injustices in America following the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man whose police custody death in Minneapolis sparked violent protests across the country. She said Floyd’s death was “not a complete anomaly” and that the unrest had been the direct result of “decades of unaddressed prejudice and inequality.”

    Top government officials slammed CBS News’ “60 Minutes” after co-host Scott Pelley ran a segment on Sunday night that contained false and misleading claims on certain aspects of the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China. The segment begins by falsely suggesting that the United States federal government has “been less than honest” about the coronavirus pandemic just like the Chinese Communist Party. Some of the actions taken by the Chinese communist government to hide the truth about the coronavirus pandemic that started in their country include: Some of the actions taken by the Chinese communist...
