"“Over the past month we’ve seen buildings and structures around Capitol Square vandalized and flags, dumpsters, a bus and other items set ablaze during demonstrations around the city,” spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of General Services Dena Potter said in an email, according to the Hill.
“When we saw the flag, we were concerned that it could become a target, so we told the contractor to remove it,” she continued."

"President Donald Trump is being trolled on Twitter after footage of a man singing a Bruno Mars song at his Fourth of July event at the White House was shared online.

Many of the president's critics were quick to point out that former President Barack Obama had the real Bruno Mars perform at his Fourth of July party in 2015, calling it "a tale of two presidents."

Utah congressional Republican candidate Burgess Owens told Breitbart News Saturday that America will see a “true renaissance” with President Donald Trump re-elected for a second term and a Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

Owens — a former Oakland Raiders safety and Super Bowl champion — recently won Utah’s fourth congressional district primary. The black conservative hopes to unseat freshman swing district Democrat Rep. Ben McAdams.

Atlanta Mayor On Death Of 8-Year-Old Girl: ‘We Are Doing Each Other More Harm Than Any Police Officer On This Force’

“Secoriea Turner was shot and killed last night, and it was not by the hands of police officers,” Bottoms said. “It was by the hands of a coward, cowards, who are still out and about in our community. This happened … near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed a few weeks ago.”

“We’ve talk a lot about what we are demanding from our officers in our communities,” Bottoms continued. “We’ve protested, we’ve demonstrated, we’ve been angry, we’ve cried, we’ve demanded action. We’ll now we’re demanding action for Secoriea Turner and for all of the other people who were shot in Atlanta last night and over the past few weeks because the reality is this – these aren’t police officers shooting people on the streets of Atlanta, these are members of the community shooting each other, and in this case, it is the worst possible outcome.”

“Enough is enough. Enough is enough,” Bottoms continued. “We have talked about this movement that’s happening across America in this moment in time where we have the ears and the interest of people across this country and across this globe who were saying they want to see change. … We’re fighting the enemy within when we are shooting each other up on our streets in the city and you shot and killed a baby. And it wasn’t one shooter, there were at least two shooters. An 8-year-old baby. If you want people to take us seriously, and you don’t want us to lose this movement, then we can’t lose each other.”

“You can’t blame this on a police officer, you can’t say this is about criminal justice reform. This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an eight-year-old baby in the car,” Bottoms concluded. “We got to stop this. We are doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force. We’ve had over 75 shootings in the city over the past several weeks. You can’t blame that on APD. So, I’m just asking you to please honor this baby’s life. Please, if you know who did this, please turn them in. These people are a danger to all of us.”

Fox reaches new lows. How do you "mistakenly" eliminate someones photo from a news story?

Direct quote from Fox:

“On Sunday, July 5, a report on Ghislaine Maxwell during FOX News Channel’s America’s News HQ mistakenly eliminated President Donald Trump from a photo alongside then Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell,” the statement said. “We regret the error.”

"Fox reaches new lows. How do you "mistakenly" eliminate someones photo from a news story?"

I suppose you could invent several reasons. There has to be plenty of pics of Epstein&Maxwell without Trump, so why even use that one. The standard shot is this:

https://ta-images.condecdn.net/image/RbORwBlVL8M/crop/1800/f/gettyimages-590696434-3-square.jpg

Put in place to be 'discovered' later? Lazy Fox graphics person cropping out their favorite candidate? Epstein is far more tied to the Democratic elite, so the misdirection to tie Trump to him has got to be very strong simply to win an at-all-costs (including the destruction of cities) election.

I'll go with my favorite answer. All newspeople are liars at heart, including the local ones.

De Blasio held a press conference Monday after a weekend of violence across New York City that left at least eight people dead and more than 44 people shot and injured.

“I want to talk about what happened this weekend. Many were out there celebrating, but we saw too much violence, and we have a lot of work to do to address it,” de Blasio said, while adding that “there is not one cause for something like this.”

“This is directly related to coronavirus,” de Blasio said. “This is a very serious situation… As we’re getting into warmer and warmer weather, we’re feeling the effects of people being cooped up for months, the economy hasn’t restarted – we have a real problem here.”

"If you want a hot take about the Middle East, Raphael Badani is your man.

As a Newsmax “Insider” columnist, he has thoughts about how Iraq needs to rid itself of Iranian influence to attract investment and why Dubai is an oasis of stability in a turbulent region. His career as a “geopolitical risk consultant and interactive simulation designer” and an “international relations senior analyst” for the Department of Labor have given him plenty of insights about the Middle East. He’s printed those insights at a range of conservative outlets like the Washington Examiner, RealClear Markets, American Thinker, and The National Interest.

Unfortunately for the outlets who published his articles and the readers who believed them, Raphael Badani does not exist.
His profile photos are stolen from the blog of an unwitting San Diego startup founder. His LinkedIn profile, which described him as a graduate of George Washington and Georgetown, is equally fictitious.
Badani is part of a network of at least 19 fake personas that has spent the past year placing more than 90 opinion pieces in 46 different publications. The articles heaped praise on the United Arab Emirates and advocated for a tougher approach to Qatar, Turkey, Iran and its proxy groups in Iraq and Lebanon.

On Monday, Twitter suspended Badani’s account along with 15others after The Daily Beast shared the results of its investigation into the network for violating the company’s “policies on platform manipulation and spam.”

“Using technology, human review, and partnerships with researchers and other independent organizations studying these issues, we work to identify platform manipulation on our service and take action,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Daily Beast in a statement. “As is standard, if we have reasonable evidence to attribute any activity to a state-backed information operation, we’ll disclose them—following thorough investigation—to our public archive.”

“This vast influence operation highlights the ease with which malicious actors can exploit the identity of real people, dupe international news outlets, and have propaganda of unknown provenance legitimized through reputable media,” Marc Owen Jones, an assistant professor at Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Qatar who first noticed suspicious posts by members of the network, told The Daily Beast. “It’s not just fake news we need to be wary of, but fake journalists.”

People with knowledge of the project say the content of the book is largely negative and that the manuscript heavily trashes the first lady.

Winston Wolkoff previously worked for Vogue editrix and artistic director of Condé Nast Anna Wintour, who nicknamed her “General Winston” during her stint as the magazine’s special events director producing the celebrity-packed Met Gala."

CDC: After 10-Week Decline In COVID-19 Deaths, It May Soon No Longer Be An Epidemic

“Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) decreased from 9.0% during week 25 to 5.9% during week 26, representing the tenth week of a declining percentage of deaths due to PIC,” according to the CDC’s website.

Fear over an impending second wave of cases and subsequent deaths due to COVID-19 has generated caution in reopening businesses. In the parts of the country that have reopened, however, death rates haven’t widely spiked.

Despite the United States reaching its highest single-day surge of new COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, the death rate continues to remain stagnant, relatively unaffected by the increase in diagnoses. Cases have increased for week 26 in most regions nationally, but still remain lower than peaks in March and April.

While policymakers toy with the idea of a second shutdown, the CDC is reporting a lower death rate even while COVID-19 cases are recently on the rise.”

Trump’s Monthly Approval Drops in June

Monday, July 06, 2020

When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.

As racial unrest and the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic continue, the president earned a monthly job approval of 45% in June, down from 47% in May and his high of 49% for the year to date in February. In 2019, Trump’s monthly approval ran from a low of 44% in January to a high of 50% in April. He ended the year at 49%. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapproved of the president’s job performance this June, up two points from the month before.

I'm not sure when most literate people learned that but certainly by the end of elementary school, grade 8.

From Axios:

"President Trump’s decision to ask the Supreme Court to throw out the Affordable Care Act may alienate the independent voters who can swing the presidential election. That could be especially important in battleground states."

With you contention that we should not have universal health care how would your model for free enterprise non governmental health care deal with something like the Covid 19 pandemic?

Trump is now down by 19 in Gallup's latest poll.

Here is their analysis on his current status in the polls. Massive decline in a month. Looking grim.

"In early May, Trump's approval tied his personal best at 49% -- before it sank amid nationwide protests over racial injustice after the death of George Floyd. Now his approval rating stands just three percentage points above his personal low of 35%, registered on four separate occasions in 2017.


The latest results are based on a June 8-30 Gallup poll. While Trump's overall job approval rating is essentially unchanged from the prior May 28-June 4 poll, it does show some improvement among Republicans, from 85% to 91%. However, the current poll also indicates the president's approval rating has dropped among independents, from 39% to 33%, as well as among Democrats, from 5% to 2%."

Re: The Left: “The Hong Kong government, now completely under Beijing’s communist thumb, has started removing books from school libraries written by anyone known to be sympathetic to liberty. The books will be reviewed so that offending parts can be removed or kept out of libraries in their entirety. No word yet on whether the Hong Kong government is getting advice from the progressive movement in this country that is trying to censor our history.” —Gary Bauer

And more Daily Quotes

Insight: “The Declaration of Independence is the all-time masterpiece of ideological simplification. There in a single sentence of self-evident truth, the founding Fathers put into clear, easily understandable focus, the broad basis of man’s relationship to God, to government, and to his fellow man.” —Clarence Manion (1896-1979)

For the record: “The teacher ought also to be especially on his guard against taking unfair advantage of the student’s immaturity by indoctrinating him with the teacher’s own opinions before the student has had an opportunity fairly to examine other opinions upon the matters in question, and before he has sufficient knowledge and ripeness of judgment to be entitled to form any definitive opinion of his own." —1915 guideline from the American Association of University Professors, but still in force today.

Good question: "Why is Harvard still charging a full undergraduate tuition rate of $49,653 despite holding all classes online? They have a 41 BILLION dollar endowment. Why are they still ripping students off?” —Charlie Kirk

Observations: “The Left is attempting to make Black Lives Matter, a radical far left political group, into an untouchable entity that only a Nazi would criticize. If we go along with this and let them pull off the trick, we deserve to lose the culture and everything else.” —Matt Walsh

Dezinformatsiya: “I don’t think I have ever seen such dishonest and biased coverage of any event.” —seasoned journalist Brit Hume on the Leftmedia reports on Trump at Mount Rushmore

Non compos mentis: “There are roughly 1,848 confederate statues of in the US. More than half are in The South, and it’s not acceptable. No one should be protecting the legacies of confederate leaders and slave owners. If we plan to move forward, these monuments must come down. But let’s remember: Removing these statues does not erase our country’s vile history of oppression — removing them is a symbol of respect for Black people in America and it’s a step towards progress and actual equality for all.” —Justin Timberlake

And last… “The vice president says he will transform America. He will, and the American people will pay a fearsome price. His foreign policy is hugs and hot cocoa for America’s enemies. If he’s elected, my advice to you is: Build a fallout shelter.” —Senator John Kennedy

“In addition to the misdemeanor, Lopez is now under investigation for potential election fraud stemming from alleged stolen valor. KEPR reported Lopez may have presented false credentials while running for county commissioner.

Additionally, the Hermiston Police are sending the Office of the District Attorney verifiable information of potential election fraud as it pertains to the Stolen Valor Act of 2013 and other false credentials presented by Mr. Lopez during his run for county commissioner. This in conjunction with a lengthy criminal history record may result in the filing of additional charges,” the outlet reported.”

Is Trump either stupid or a liar when he states “99 percent” of them (virus cases) were “totally harmless.”

One percent of 3,000,000 cases (estimate by the end of the day) is 30,000. How does he come up with that number when there have been 130,000 deaths as of today. Is this an example of the dumbing down of America that you refer to?

"President Trump dismissed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States over the weekend, downplaying the impact of the disease and saying that while the testing of tens of millions of American had identified many cases, “99 percent” of them were “totally harmless.”

His remarks about a virus that has already claimed nearly 130,000 lives were perplexing. The coronavirus is surging across the Sunbelt states and has rebounded in California. At least 2.8 million Americans have been infected, and public health officials have said the real number of infections may be 10 times higher."

‘Is Strzok Memo the Rosetta Stone of Obamagate?’

“Andrew McCarthy at National Review speculates that “Strzok’s notes were taken when someone later briefed him about the White House meeting that Strzok did not attend.” The New York Post concludes that the Strzok memo is “plainly Strzok’s notes of FBI chief Jim Comey’s account.” Certainly if Strzok were briefed by someone in attendance, it was most likely Comey. But Ivan Pentchoukov of The Epoch Times floats a much more interesting idea about how Strzok came to be in possession of the facts he recorded in the memo.

“The on-the-fly nature of the notes suggest that he was either physically present or listened in on a conference call,” Pentchoukov speculates.

Well, the Washington Post reports that “Strzok’s lawyer told The Fact Checker that Strzok did not attend the meeting,” and then suggests that probably means “the notes may recount what someone else — perhaps Comey — told him about the meeting.” Yes, maybe so, but there is good reason not to skate over the possibility that, as Pentchoukov puts it, Strzok “listened in” on the conversation.

This is indeed heady stuff, as it is beyond reason to think that Strzok was an invited participant. The last thing anyone at that meeting would want is an independent account of what was said as they planned how to entrap one of the incoming president’s closest aides. Yet that does not eliminate the chance that Strzok benefited from some kind of surveillance technique to eavesdrop on the conversation, either with the knowledge of one person in the room or possibly with none. Of course it is scary to think that the FBI was wiretapping the White House, but they did it to Trump Tower, so who knows?“

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2020/07/06/is_strzok_memo_the_rosetta_stone_of_obamagate_143628.html#2

I usually shy away from pure speculation. However, the nagging question remains. Why did Biden and Obama lie about the meeting and both lied about their first hand knowledge of the FBI’s investigation into Trump? The only plausible explanation I can think of is they knew they were doing wrong things...things not by the book. Why deny first hand knowledge of the operation when they were clearly involved? Why, why, why?

re: COVID-19

‘WHO alters timeline to indicate it first learned of coronavirus from Internet, not Chinese officials
More questions raised over the WHO's ties to Beijing after coronavirus timeline change’

“The first confirmed case from inside Wuhan was said to have been logged on Dec. 8, a woman who claimed to have not been connected to the market. It raises questions about what went on during the weeks in between, the WHO's own investigative abilities and why an initial tweet sent by the WHO on Jan. 14 said there was "no evidence of human to human transmission.

Furthermore, on Feb. 3, several weeks after scores of countries – including the United States – had confirmed cases of the new illness, WHO's Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus proclaimed that "the spread to other countries is minimal and slow," and the virus could be "contained easily" as a result of China's "strategy and efforts." His comments came a week after the health chief met with Chinese President Xi Jinping.”

————————————
‘WHO Quietly Changes COVID Timeline following Republican Questioning’

“The lack of clarity led multiple outlets — including Axios, the Washington Post, and the BBC — to report that Chinese authorities told the WHO’s China office about the outbreak on December 31. But an interim report released last month by Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee scrutinized that claim, and argued the CCP never actually told the WHO about the outbreak.”

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/who-quietly-changes-covid-timeline-following-republican-questioning/

Key takeaway: Furthermore, on Feb. 3, several weeks after scores of countries – including the United States – had confirmed cases of the new illness, WHO's Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus proclaimed that "the spread to other countries is minimal and slow," and the virus could be "contained easily" as a result of China's "strategy and efforts."

Here is what Mary Trump (PhD in Psychology) has to say about her beloved uncle's current state of mind:

“Donald’s penchant for division, and uncertainty about our country’s future have created a perfect storm of catastrophes that no one is less equipped than my uncle to manage. His ability to control unfavorable situations by lying, spinning, and obfuscating has diminished to the point of impotence in the midst of the tragedies we are currently facing. His egregious and arguably intentional mishandling of the current catastrophe has led to a level of pushback and scrutiny that he’s never experienced before, increasing his belligerence and need for petty revenge as he withholds vital funding, personal protective equipment, and ventilators that your tax dollars have paid for from states whose governors don’t kiss his ass sufficiently.”

Yeah, Trump was off on the percentage that's "totally harmless". Might be more like 96%. BUt 99% could be arguable if you think anything you can live through is harmless.
