    During the peak of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic in April and May, Orange County, California health care officials reported inaccurate numbers. For more than five weeks, the county incorrectly included 30,000 serology tests – used to detect whether or not a person has antibodies for the virus, suggesting they previously had an infection – into their "cumulative tests to date" figures, the Los Angeles Times reported. The mistake inflated both the county's testing numbers and the number of positive Wuhan coronavirus cases. Serology tests give health care providers an idea of how prevalent the virus is in their area but...

    Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested last week in the small town of Bradford, N.H., where she had been residing in a million-dollar estate. The 58-year-old appeared virtually before a federal magistrate in nearby Concord Thursday afternoon and waived her right to a detention hearing, clearing the way for her transfer to New York. She was ordered held without bail on multiple sex abuse charges, including conspiracy to entice minors to engage in sexual acts. Maxwell, the daughter of the late British media magnate Robert Maxwell, had been accustomed to living in luxury. The Sun reported: GHISLAINE Maxwell will be “fully cooperating”...

    Vote-by-mail is the devil It’s valid for those of us on the right to be concerned about the fate of our beloved country, especially in this strangest of years. We are, after all, facing a host of problems: the coronavirus pandemic, the successful radical leftist indoctrination of two generations of public school kids, and the resulting lust for socialism on the American left resulting from that. There is also the fact that the idiot lefties are trying to ruin sports, entertainment, and even hamburgers, but we’ll have to save that for another day.When I survey the 2020 landscape trying to...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is permitting Black Lives Matter protesters to continue marching through city streets while the city is canceling all large events through September. Speaking on CNN Thursday night, de Blasio said the demonstrators’ calls for social justice were too important to stop after more than a month of demonstrations have not led to an outbreak of coronavirus cases. “This is a historic moment of change. We have to respect that but also say to people the kinds of gatherings we’re used to, the parades, the fairs — we just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health...

    Blue Lives Matter is a countermovement in our country that is advocating that those who are prosecuted and convicted of killing law enforcement officers should be sentenced under hate crime statutes. It was started in response to Black Lives Matter after the homicides of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in Brooklyn, New York on December 20, 2014. But as the Blue Lives Matters is ignored by the left and the mainstream media attacks on cops are ignored too. Protests over racism and police violence continue nationwide, sparked by outrage over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black...

    CNN host Don Lemon is well known for his far-left points of view and deep embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement, which is pushing hard to defund police around the country. Lemon earlier this week practically laughed off skyrocketing crime rates in big cities as a police back off from doing their jobs and even look to quit altogether due to mounting forces against them. But that’s not what he thought just a few short years ago. Case in point is a 2013 CNN video showing Lemon shining the spotlight on problems in the black community — and actually...

    Derek Utley shared a video of a Vietnam Veteran with a powerful message for BLM and Antifa. The video already has nearly 178k views. Don’t be fooled into believing all black Americans agree with the radical, Marxist Black Lives Matter and violent Antifa movement that’s spreading through large cities in America like cancer. Transcript of the video: Antifa, Black Lives Matter…let it be known, millions of us Americans know…Antifa, you’re fascists. Black Lives Matter, you’re Marxists. You don’t give a damn about the black people. All you two anarchistic organizations care about is achieving the destruction of America. Well, it...

    Protesters can often be heard chanting, “Stay together, stay tight! We do this every night” in the streets of downtown Portland. The second half of the slogan is especially fitting as the riots continued for the 41st consecutive night Wednesday in downtown Portland. Terry Schrunk Plaza was the scene of a loose gathering of about 100 people Terry Schrunk Plaza on Wednesday evening. A group of federal police officers ran through the area at about 9:30 p.m. and some protesters claimed the officers used pepper spray. Others said the officers were responding to someone using a laser. The scene quickly...
  • If America Is So Racist, Why Are There So Many Race Hoaxes?

    As I wrote nearly three years ago: "Perhaps the second greatest libel — and certainly the most widespread — is that America is a racist country that oppresses its minorities and women. We can call it the American Libel." (The greatest libel was the infamous blood libel, the fabricated charge spread in Europe for hundreds of years by Christian anti-Semites that Jews kill Christian children to use their blood to bake matzos — unleavened bread — for Passover.) But if America is so racist, why are there so many race hoaxes? Virtually every time we read about a swastika painted...

    When U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar got remarried in March following her divorce, the Minnesota Democrat tied the knot with a man who was a member of her political consulting team. Now, campaign data show Omar has paid Tim Mynett’s consulting firm a total of more than $878,000 since 2018 – including $189,000 just weeks after the couple announced they were husband and wife, the New York Post reported. In the first quarter of this year, Mynett’s E Street Group has received more than $292,000 from Omar’s campaign for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services, the Star Tribune of Minneapolis...

    The most dangerous flaw in the modern news media is their now constant vulnerability of becoming deeply invested in a particular narrative at the very start of a large story, and then having the ensuing tunnel vision prevent them from adjusting their reporting as new facts become available. I am referring here to the news media’s obsession with using “new cases” as by far the most common, and often only, data point for evaluating how the nation is coping with the coronavirus crisis. For more than two weeks, ever since June 19, when new cases in the United States went...

    First we were warned about an exponential increase. Cases were doubling and tripling in as many days. Soon millions would be sick and dying. Then we were warned of rising deaths, even though many of these deaths had other causes... The media and experts then began selling tests as the key. Why exactly was unclear, with the vast majority of people having mild symptoms, no cure or vaccine in sight, and no realistic way for our decrepit public health system to do contact tracing. But tests it would be. We now conduct a lot of tests. “Drive-by” testing has happened...

Solidarity trial investigators will interrupt the trials with immediate effect," the WHO said in a statement, referencing multi-country trials it is conducting.

    In a recent interview, Dr. John Ioannidis had a harsh assessment of modelers who predicted as many as 40 million people would die and the US healthcare system would be overrun because of COVID-19. =========================================================================== Dr. John Ioannidis became a world-leading scientist by exposing bad science. But the COVID-19 pandemic could prove to be his biggest challenge yet. Ioannidis, the C.F. Rehnborg Chair in Disease Prevention at Stanford University, has come under fire in recent months for his opposition to state-ordered lockdowns, which he says could cause social harms well beyond their presumed benefits. But he doesn’t appear to be...
