The US election will be behind us. A Covid-19 vaccine could be on the "verge of approval."On reopening schools, Goldman Sachs expects a "bumpy process" characterized by "some false starts," especially in the United States.

    Meaghan Ellis August 5, 2020 0 Comments Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is highlighting preconceived notions about Black people, as she is insisting many of those narratives and conclusions are common among those with liberal beliefs. Rice participated in an interview hosted by the Aspen Security Forum on Tuesday where she explained why she believes the United States will never be considered a “colorblind” nation due to all of the preconceived notions. “I would like to get to the place that when you see somebody who is black, you don’t have preconceived notions of what they’re capable of, who they are — by the way, what they think, which is, I think, a problem of the Left,” Rice...
    San Francisco (CNN Business)TikTok is up for grabs. But while the popular short-form video app likely won't lack for suitors, President Donald Trump says the US government needs to get a "substantial amount of money" as part of any deal.It's a demand that experts say is far outside the norm at best, and if it were to be met could set a dangerous precedent. "It's really not for the President to say that a deal can go through or a deal can't go through, or that a company must pay a ransom to the United States government or get a deal done by a particular deadline," said Avery Gardiner, general counsel and senior fellow for competition, data and power at...
    Cody Fenwick August 5, 2020 9:06AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. A new interview of President Donald Trump with Axios' Jonathan Swan garnered much attention and acclaim for the reporter on Tuesday, with many stunned at the level of ignorance, incompetence, and callousness on display in the White House. But to be frank, while Swan put up some resistance to Trump and fact-checked him at key moments, he actually let the president get away with a lot of lying and dishonest spinning. Of course, this is what the president does — he spews disinformation and tries to bulldoze anyone who challenges him — which makes him difficult to interview. Much of it made Trump look ridiculous and...

    Speaking on Tuesday at a hearing titled, “Hearing on Protecting Free Speech and Preventing Violent Protests,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave a fiery defense of the federal government’s intervention in the Portland riots that targeted a federal courthouse, snapping, “If we hadn’t intervened they’d burn the godda***d thing down.” Graham addressed Acting Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Kenneth Cuccinelli and Erin Nealy Cox, the United States Attorney for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. He began, “So just to put this into context for myself, to those who accuse the United States of being a totalitarian state, I don’t buy it, because I don’t remember many hearings like this in Germany, where you call the Gestapo...

During a Q&A session with the JAMA Network on Monday, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was asked about what could be expected in the fall. “I do not know how and nor could anyone know what the fall is going to bring,” Fauci said.

However, he insists the United States is still “right in the middle of the first wave”...
    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) blasted Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) after numerous comments and actions from the past surfaced in recent days amid talk she is being considered as Joe Biden’s running mate. The controversy centers on her praise of murderous communist dictator Fidel Castro. Rubio said during a conference call that Bass would be “the highest-ranking Castro sympathizer in the history of the United States government” if Biden picks her. “This is something that she will now want to deflect from, but I don’t believe in the last six decades that there has ever been anyone considered for the vice presidency … with this level of sympathy towards a Marxist regime,” Rubio said, and later added that Bass’s attempt to...

    (CNN Business)After days of whiplash over the future of TikTok, President Donald Trump said he would allow an American company to acquire the short-form video app — with a catch.Trump on Monday set September 15 as the deadline for TikTok to find a US buyer, failing which he said he will shut down the app in the country. In an unusual declaration, Trump also said any deal would have to include a "substantial amount of money" coming to the US Treasury."Right now they don't have any rights unless we give it to them.

    WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump has changed his tune on TikTok -- somewhat.Backing away from an immediate ban, Trump said on Monday if Microsoft or another "secure" and "very American" company doesn't buy the U.S. leg of the Chinese-owned operation by Sept. 15, the wildly-popular video app will cease operating in the U.S."I set a date of around Sept. 15, at which point it's going to be out of business," Trump told White House reporters. "But if somebody, and whether it's Microsoft or somebody else, buys it, that'll be interesting."Adding that the brand name is "hot" right now, Trump said, "It's a great asset, but it's not a great asset in the United States unless they have the approval of...

    Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, told Fox News on Monday that Democrats are “perfectly happy to let the cities in the United States burn,” if it helps them win in the upcoming presidential election. “Democrats want to play politics instead of actually providing the capital necessary to start businesses,” Roy told “Fox & Friends.” “We’re trying to work hard to get through this pandemic, get our economy started, keep the American people safe,” he added. Roy said that Democrats have politicized the response to the coronavirus in an attempt to sway voters in the general election. "What we are seeing in Washington is frankly appalling. I gave a floor speech last week talking about this, where we have seen a politicization of...

    As September draws closer, the entire United States is debating the best way to restart the school year in the new Covid-19 era. Resuming in-person instruction remains a complicated decision that requires economists, public health officials, federal, state and local governments to work together to find a solution. It's universally agreed that restarting school is vital for the economic recovery, but the debate remains over how quickly the United States should bring teachers and students back into classrooms. President Donald Trump and his supporters have been pushing hard for schools to reopen in order for the economy to restart. Trump has cited other countries that have been able to reopen schools as evidence the U.S. can, too. The spread...

    President Trump, in a recent memo, asked executive departments to report back by early August on how they can develop a U.S. "fleet" of icebreaking ships to navigate the frozen Arctic and Antarctic -- marking yet another step in the administration's efforts to strengthen U.S. influence in the region as it faces challenges from Russia and China. Specifically, the Trump memo ordered the State Department, Defense Department, Commerce Department and Office of Management and Budget to review how the U.S. could acquire "at least three heavy polar-class security cutters," better known as icebreakers. The U.S. currently lags behind Russia in the icebreakers department, and sees this deficit as a problem. Energy resources, security concerns and more are driving the push to catch up. The memo, which...
            by Clifford Humphrey and Juan Davalos  In June, we counted 23 articles written about the prospect of a new or cold civil war in the United States. In July, that number doubled to 46. That’s no mere “uptick.” Right or wrong, these prognostications from both Left and Right are significant for what they reveal about the nature of the political division in the United States. Interest in this topic will only increase as we approach the election in November and whatever lies beyond it. For this reason, we are launching a website dedicated to collecting and cataloging all the news and opinions on the prospect of a new civil war. We do not aim to be...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald trump said on Friday that he was planning to sign an executive order as soon as Saturday banning Chinese-owned short-video app TikTok from the United States.

    SAN ANTONIO – The Asian Giant Hornet is roughly about two inches long, but it’s causing a big buzz across the country. For the first time ever, the insect which has been dubbed the “murder hornet” because it can decimate honeybee hives with its potent venom and stinger, has been located in the United States. The New York Times reported the hornet was found in the Pacific Northwest. “Within a matter of hours, they can kill off an entire bee colony which is pretty amazing considering that you will have 60,000-plus honeybees in a healthy colony,” said Molly Keck, an entomologist with the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service in Bexar County.

    Herman Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and Republican who served as co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump, died of complications from COVID-19 this week at the age of 74. Journalist Charles Bethea looks back on Cain’s political influence in an article for The New Yorker, arguing that he helped pave the way for Donald Trump’s presidency.

Ultimately, Romney won the nomination but lost to incumbent President Barack Obama in the general election. Ironically, Cain was an African-American who embraced the racist birther movement, which claimed that Obama wasn’t really born in the United States....

    To say that in 2019 America produced less coal than it has in any year since 1978 is telling only part of the story. Because in 1978 coal mines across the country were engaged in a national miner’s strike—one in which the President Jimmy Carter was definitely on the wrong side of history in attempting to force miners back on the job through the courts. Ultimately, though the miners technically won in terms of getting what they wanted, they lost because the strike accelerated the focus of mining companies into western coal fields where they would eventually break the union by shutting out union miners from large new surface mines while idling smaller mines in the east. But there was no miner’s...

    It is more likely that you know an Alex Jones true believer in 2020 than might have been the case in 2016. The really scary part is, that person might not even consider him or herself a Jones fan despite believing in a lie, or several, that Jones is responsible for hurling into the larger public sphere. But thanks to Jones and people like him, large portions of the public refuse to believe in basic facts. They will, however, believe him and the people who parrot his lies and illogic, including our country’s current president and his political enablers.

    Marshall Auerback July 29, 2020 8:00AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Independent Media Institute. COVID-19 has not only presented the global economy with its greatest public health challenge in over a century, but also likely killed off the notion of America's "unipolar moment" for good. That doesn't mean full-on autarky or isolationism but, rather, enlightened selfishness, which allows for some limited cooperation. Donald Trump's ongoing threats to impose additional tariffs on a range of EU exports are exacerbating this trend as the old post-World War II ties between the two regions continue to fray. Even the possibility of a Biden administration is unlikely to presage a reversion to the status quo ante. Regionalization and multipolarity will be the order of...
    American forces deployed to the Pacific are "highly vulnerable" to attacks from China, according to a senior GOP lawmaker who fears that Beijing could instigate and win a conflict with the United States. “The first thing that you'd have to do with certain pieces of our equipment is leave the area if China were to escalate this way,” said Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, the top Republican on the Foreign Relations subcommittee for East Asia and the Pacific. “That’s not exactly a position of strength,” he said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. What equipment does he have in mind? “The Navy,” he replied. “You would basically end up in a situation where all of our planning, all of our...
    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said Attorney General William Barr would be remembered in history as “an aider, abettor to the most corrupt president we’ve ever had.” Commenting on Barr’s testimony to Congress today, Harris said, “Listen, Bill Barr has been pretty consistent. As you recall, I questioned him even during his confirmation process, and he has been less than forthright with Congress, which, of course, has oversight. He has been less than forthright with the American people. And frankly, I think that history is going to show that he has been an aider and abetter to the most corrupt president we’ve ever had. That’s just the fact.” She added, “He is incapable of performing the job which...

    Donald Trump wants at all costs to reopen schools, while the situation is worsening in twenty states. With a total of more than 3 million cases and some 135,000 deaths, America is sinking into crisis. It suffers the consequences of a prevention policy that has varied considerably from one state to another: while some have opted for strict confinement, others have applied it more loosely or have lifted it prematurely, in the name of rapid economic recovery encouraged by the White House.

    Attorney General William Barr said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday that left-wing groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter have “hijacked legitimate protests” over the death of a black man in police custody by rioting for two months in Portland, Oregon, attacking police and trying to destroy the federal courthouse and other federal property in the city.  “I want to address a different breakdown in the rule of law that we have witnessed over the past two months,” Barr said. “In the wake of George Floyd’s death, violent rioters and anarchists have hijacked legitimate protests to wreak senseless havoc and destruction on innocent victims.” “The current situation in Portland is a telling example,” Barr said. “Every night...

    (CNN)The Trump administration's decision to eject China from its Houston consulate on a spying accusation is the latest move in a spate of US policies and actions that target Beijing. In recent weeks, the administration has sanctioned high-level Chinese officials, revoked Hong Kong's special commercial status, and delivered several high-level speeches directed at China — including on Thursday, in which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stopped just short of calling for regime change. China, for its part, has retaliated by ordering the US to close its consulate in Chengdu. The timing of this escalation is no coincidence: Trump has claimed to be tough on China for years but, in reality, he has often fawned over President Xi Jinping, praising his...
    The United States dollar, which has long played a central role in the global economy, is currently in the midst of a months-long slide that many experts are warning is likely to continue. According to Reuters, the USD index — which measures the dollar against six other major world currencies — is down 9% since March. Financial experts have been warning for months that a decline in the dollar is inevitable. The basic cause for the decline is that the world economy is betting that the United States' economy will suffer more from the coronavirus pandemic than most other developed economies. That betting is likely to intensify as many states — especially those led by Democratic governors —...

    Donald Trump campaigned on the claim that the United States was not respected in the world. That it was being laughed at. That other nations considered our country “weak.” Three hundred years and one utterly failed pandemic response into Trump’s administration, the world really is laughing at us. Polls show that 64% of people around the world have “no confidence” in Trump as U.S. leader, and even that is being held down by Trump’s approval ratings among worldwide fascists. We are absolutely seen as “weak”—and rightly so. The Washington Post’s latest write-up notes a variety of factors, all of them well-known at this point.

    Attorney General William Barr plans to tell the House Judiciary Committee that the violent unrest in Portland is "an assault on the Government of the United States," according to a copy of his prepared remarks obtained by CBS News. In the remarks, Barr also accuses Democratic members of the House Judiciary committee of trying to "discredit" him. "To state what should be obvious, peaceful protesters do not throw explosives into federal courthouses, tear down plywood with crowbars, or launch fecal matter at federal officers. Such acts are in fact federal crimes under statutes enacted by this Congress," Barr says.  Barr will appear in front of the committee on Tuesday for an oversight hearing. In his opening remarks, he discusses the...

    COVID-19 has not only presented the global economy with its greatest public health challenge in over a century, but also likely killed off the notion of America’s “unipolar moment” for good. That doesn’t mean full-on autarky or isolationism but, rather, enlightened selfishness, which allows for some limited cooperation. Donald Trump’s ongoing threats to impose additional tariffs on a range of EU exports are exacerbating this trend as the old post-World War II ties between the two regions continue to fray. Even the possibility of a Biden administration is unlikely to presage a reversion to the status quo ante. Regionalization and multipolarity will be the order of the day going forward. Many will regard these developments as chiefly driven by geopolitical prerogatives. But...
