"It is very difficult to maintain any kind of a 'common cause' with a Federal government which appears to have lost all common sense." -- Claire K. Rivero
The CDC found itself hoist with its own petard by making 25 basic statistical and numerical errors related to COVID-19, particularly with regard to children, while purporting to expose COVID vaccine misinformation, according to an analysis led by University of California San Francisco epidemiologists.
The preprint, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, documented 20 errors that "exaggerated the severity of the COVID-19 situation" and three that "simultaneously exaggerated and downplayed" severity, while one each was neutral or exaggerated vaccine risks.
More than half were from 2022, but nearly as many were made in the first two months of 2023 as in all of 2021, they found. Several errors were related to the agency's COVID data tracker, which failed to align with its National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and the CDC corrected at least in part 13 of the 16 errors brought to its attention.
After being indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, former President Donald Trump is expected to be arraigned in court on Tuesday, a law enforcement source has told Fox News.
Judge Juan Merchan is the trial judge presiding over the case, which stems from District Attorney Alvin Bragg's investigation into alleged hush money payments Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016. Trump is scheduled to be arraigned at 2:15 p.m. in Merchan's courtroom on the 15th floor at 100 Centre Street in New York City.
In addition to Trump's personal attorney Joe Tacopina, a second source has confirmed that Trump has made arrangements with the district attorney's legal team to surrender without handcuffs. Detectives with the DA's office will handle the arrest.
Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs vetoed a bill Thursday that would have prohibited people from setting up tents or tarps in public areas. Senate Bill 1024 would have stopped anyone from putting up makeshift shelters on sidewalks, alleyways, streets, parkways and other public rights-of-way.
The veto comes as Phoenix is dealing with rising homelessness. A Maricopa County Superior judge has ordered the city to clean up a homeless encampment that spans nearly 10 blocks in the downtown area.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is moving forward with the indictment of former President Donald Trump, but legal hurdles remain to get the case past an honest judge, former federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax.
"I think [Trump] gets out of it if we still have justice in New York, and I do have confidence in a number of the judges in New York. It's different than some other places," Giuliani said on Thursday night's "Greg Kelly Reports." "The case is really, really dismissible for about 10 obvious reasons, not the least of which is it violates the statute of limitations.
"The misdemeanor was not intended for nondisclosure agreements that are contracts between people that are perfectly legitimate. There at least one million of them probably in existence in New York.
"The latching it on to the federal crime of illegal campaign contributions ... first of all, it's been determined that it's not an illegal campaign contribution. It's a personal expenditure."
Firstly, we can thank the C.I.A. (Communism In America) for giving us the term “Conspiracy Theory“! So what is it? It is a pejorative term to discredit the ideas and/or beliefs of a group or an individual. Frequently the term is coupled with other negative adjectives such as “extreme”, “right wing” etc. The purpose is to prevent legitimate questions and ideas from reaching the mainstream of society. The term is employed by the bought and paid for corporate media and their mentally vacuous “readers” (Those are the faces on the television screen who get handsomely rewarded for lying to you with a straight face.).
Virgin Orbit announced late March 30 it was laying off the vast majority of its employees after failing to raise additional funding, putting the launch company’s future in jeopardy.
In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Virgin Orbit announced it was laying off approximately 675 employees, or 85% of its workforce. The company said the layoff was necessary “to reduce expenses in light of the Company’s inability to secure meaningful funding.”
Israeli airstrikes targeted the Syrian capital of Damascus early Friday morning for the second day in a row, marking the fifth time in March that Israel bombed Syria.
Syria’s state news agency SANA reported that Syrian air defenses "intercepted hostile targets" in the airspace of Damascus. There was no mention of any casualties or damage caused by the strikes.
“Remember Soros gave Alvin Bragg a million dollars. We’re used to seeing these things. Government printing money till it goes out of style in third world countries and that’s being visited in the United States of America. I spoke with President Trump moments ago and he’s resolute and concerned about what this does to America’s brand around the world,” Gaetz said.
“We will wake up in a very different America because we can no longer have moral authority against the dictators who would always find it easier to jail their political rivals than to compete against them in free and fair elections. I remember my Democrat colleagues about Comey making derogatory comments about Clinton before the election. This must ring a thousand times louder to them. I believe there are federal equities at play that the United States Congress is about to evaluate,” Gaetz added.
During Thursday’s White House Press Conference, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre raised eyebrows while speaking on the horrific shooting at Covenant Elementary School in Nashville, Tennessee.
“One of the things we saw during the midterm elections is that people don’t want their freedoms to be taken —they want us to fight for their freedoms. And so, it is shameful, it is disturbing and our hearts go out to the trans community as they are under attack right now,” KJP told the White House press corp.
Six Christians were murdered at an elementary school by a member of the trans community —including three children. This is a terrible take, Karine.
President Joe Biden on Friday refused to comment on the indictment of Donald Trump.
'I have no comment on Trump,' he told reporters at the White House as he and Jill Biden headed to Mississippi to tour damage from a deadly tornado.
The president refused to talk about his predecessor despite being asked multiple times. He also didn't acknowledge questions about whether he was concerned about protesters or violence in the wake of the indictment.
Republican senators filed a bill to designate Mexican cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations. The move comes after several state’s attorney generals and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott asked the Biden administration to do so but it has not.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken testified at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week at which Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, asked him if he would designate Mexican cartels as FTOs. He asked, “How about this idea – rather than just interdicting at the border, we go to the source and declare Mexican drug cartels foreign terrorist organizations under U.S. law, would you consider that?”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vociferously criticized news of the indictment of former President Donald Trump, calling it “un-American” and insisting Florida would refuse any extradition requests.
As many of our knowledgeable readers already are aware by now, Trump, the current leading Republican candidate for President, has been indicted by a Manhattan grand jury investigating the circumstances around hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a Democrat, has been pursuing Trump on the matter for years, and finally reaped the rewards of his efforts with a stunning 34-count indictment.
President Biden issued an official proclamation declaring that transgender Americans "shape our nation's soul" and established a holiday relating to the group this week.
Biden issued the proclamation Thursday to mark March 31, 2023, as the Transgender Day of Visibility, a day some transgender activists have renamed to "day of vengeance."
"Transgender Americans shape our Nation's soul -- proudly serving in the military, curing deadly diseases, holding elected office, running thriving businesses, fighting for justice, raising families, and much more," Biden wrote in the Thursday morning proclamation.
