Visibly upset, the woman started throwing all the products she had in her shopping cart and left the place shouting insults. The use of masks as a measure to stop the spread of COVID-19 has caused controversy because state and local authorities do not agree on its mandatory nature, much less around sanctioning anyone who does not wear a mouth mask in public areas. In Dallas, the county judge, Clay Jenkins, again asked the governor to again issue the order to stay home...
    “I was more afraid when I went to get my chicken at the market”: some voters who voted on Sunday in the second round of the municipal elections felt protected by the exceptional health measures taken against the coronavirus. But without avoiding an abstention which also promises to be new. Leaving polling station 512 in Clermont-Ferrand, Denis Dupont, 63, is adamant: “We still take less risk by coming to vote than by going to the music festival”. In the first round, on March 15, at the start of the epidemic, he voted openly and “it was a mess”. This time, he came masked – it is compulsory – and was able to vote calmly. It is also true that...
    Sweden's top virus expert has said the 'world went mad' with coronavirus lockdowns which 'fly in the face of what is known about handling virus pandemics'. Anders Tegnell, who advised Sweden to avoid full lockdown in favour of a 'herd immunity' strategy, said world leaders caved to political pressure amid panic - and that the crippling economic downsides of lockdown will far outweigh the benefits. Sweden has confirmed 68,390 cases of coronavirus and 5,230 deaths - far above its Nordic neighbours, but its economy is intact and actually posted slight growth in the first quarter of this year.  Tegnell also hit out at the WHO after it placed Sweden on a list of 11 countries seeing a 'dangerous resurgence' in...

    The Treasury Department gave COVID-19 stimulus dollars to nearly 1.1 million dead Americans, to the tune of $1.4 billion, an internal non-partisan government report found.  The Government Accountability Office, which is Congressionally mandated to keep an eye on where the money from the CARES Act went, found that haste, a clumsy reading of the law and government entities not talking to one another led to the payments to dead people being made.  On March 27, Congress passed the CARES act to boost the economy as the coronavirus pandemic cratered it.  The Treasury Department gave COVID-19 stimulus dollars to nearly 1.1 million dead Americans, to the tune of $1.4 billion, a new report from the Government Accountability Office found  Haste,...
    WELSH rugby league star Scott Bessant has died nearly three years after suffering life-changing injuries. The dad of two, 37, died on Thursday after complications with pneumonia. The former Wales Dragonhearts full-back was found seriously hurt near a bridge in August 2017. A tribute on the Wales Rugby League website read: "For over 950 days, Scott’s parents, Howard and Jackie, didn’t missed a day in visiting their son, until everything went on lockdown. "Scott was due to eventually live with his sister Rachael, whose home was in the process of being adapted for his complex needs. "There was an initial scare in April when it was thought Scott had contracted COVID-19 but last week, he went down with pneumonia and...
    GPS tracking of seven million US college students who traveled for spring break this year ahead of lockdowns suggests they may have brought coronavirus home with them, and spread it in their communities.  It supports public health experts suspicions that spring break helped to fuel the virus's spread in March, when the pandemic was beginning to take hold in the US.  Numerous outbreaks were reported on college campuses in the weeks following spring break. A now-infamous University of Texas, Austin, trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico led to 64 COVID-19 infections, and spring breakers across the country were pictured flagrantly ignoring social distancing guidelines.  The new research, from Ball State University and Vanderbilt University, reveals how closely rises in coronavirus...
    More than one million dead people received coronavirus stimulus checks this year, according to a report from a government watchdog agency. The payments to nearly 1.1 million people totaled $1.4 billion, the Government Accountability Office revealed Thursday. Treasury Department officials said that the late-March CARES Act mandated that they distribute the money as “rapidly as possible,” the report says. The revelation follows anecdotal reporters of dead people getting stimulus checks — and comes as Congress begins to consider a new coronavirus package that may include more direct payments. The CARES Act sought to blunt the economic devastation of the pandemic by sending checks up to $1,200 to taxpayers, with an extra $500 per dependent child. The bill also gave...

    Forget the second wave. The first wave is still washing over us. The evidence can no longer be denied as coronavirus outbreaks emerge in all kinds of venues, in cities and towns large and small. We are all sick of social distancing, of being largely confined to our homes and apartments, and yet the virus doesn’t care. Here we are at the end of June, when some thought the hot weather might buy us a long respite, and COVID-19 is still packing a considerable punch.

    China on Tuesday launched the latest satellite in its Beidou network, similar to the US Global Positioning System, and went one step further to become a major space power. The launch of the satellite on a Long March-3 rocket was broadcast live from the Xichang base in the mountains in southwest China, shortly before 10 a.m. A half hour later, the satellite went into orbit and deployed its solar panels for power. The launch, originally scheduled for last week, was postponed after pre-checks identified unspecified technical issues. The third generation of the Beidou Satellite Navigation System promises to offer global coverage for navigation and time measurement. It is an alternative to the Russian GLONASS system and the European Galileo, in...
    2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden said he will be a staunch defender of LGBTQ rights if he wins November’s election, but he formerly voted for legislation that defended traditional marriage and cut off funding for programs promoting homosexuality. The former vice president has changed his stances on a variety of cultural issues, including abortion and same-sex marriage. Where Biden once said that Roe v. Wade had gone “too far,” he now says he would codify Roe v. Wade, repeal the Hyde Amendment and protect federal funding for Planned Parenthood, among other measures. His evolution on LGBTQ rights is similar. Biden in 1996 voted for the Defense of Marriage Act, legislation that blocked the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, according...
    The depth of acrimony between Donald Trump and two of his siblings toward their nephew Fred III and niece Mary is laid bare in a lawsuit against the trio who refused to pay for the medical care of their own flesh and blood. Mary Trump, who is about to publish a book full of 'harrowing and salacious' details about the Trump family, has raised the ire of the president once again as he demands the book not be published.  Certainly the tell-all will include the bitter legal feud over family patriarch Fred Sr.'s will and the discontinuation of medical benefits for some members of the family. DailyMail.com has obtained copies of the lawsuit, filed in 2000 by Mary and Fred...
    (CNN)By the time President Donald Trump was gliding in his helicopter toward Joint Base Andrews on Saturday, destined for what he'd once hoped would be a triumphant packed-to-the-rafters return to the campaign trail, things were already looking bad.Scanning cable news coverage earlier in the day, Trump was disappointed to see pictures not of massive lines forming outside the Bank of Oklahoma Center in Tulsa but of Geoffrey Berman, the federal prosecutor Trump's attorney general had attempted unsuccessfully to dismiss the night before, a person familiar with his response said.Hours later, the President was informed six campaign staffers in Tulsa had tested positive for coronavirus ahead of his scheduled arrival -- an unfortunate reminder of an ongoing pandemic Trump's critics say...
    The Justice Department's attempt to block the release of John Bolton's tell-all book has been denied.  Judge Royce Lamberth denied the request to block the sale of the former national security adviser's memoir, 'The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir' in a ruling Saturday.   Lamberth, a Reagan appointee, heard arguments Friday over Zoom from Bolton's lawyer Charles Cooper and Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Morrell, representing the government.  This came after the Trump administration sued Bolton on Tuesday in order to postpone the release of his book because of concerns that classified information could be exposed The book was leaked to the media the next day.  It contains a number of explosive claims about President Trump, including that he asked...

But officers arrested him before he could get away. This file booking photo provided by the Rexburg (Idaho) Police Department shows Chad Daybell, who was arrested June 9, 2020....
    The national arm of Black Lives Matter spent millions of dollars on travel and compensation over the past three fiscal years, according to financial statements obtained by the Daily Caller, while granting comparatively little to outside organizations, including the group's local chapters. The news raises suspicions that top staffers at the organization are cashing in on the movement for racial justice and equality while grassroots organizations go largely unsupported. Here's more from the Daily Caller report:BLM Global Network spent $899,000 on travel, $1.6 million on consulting and $2.1 million on personnel costs during its 2017, 2018 and 2019 fiscal years, the financial statements show, together comprising 83.3% of its total spending during the three year period.

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s forthcoming memoir claims President Trump’s "transgressions" went well beyond the Ukraine saga that led to his impeachment and alleges that “reelection calculations” drove the president's major decisions, according to a press release for the book. “This is the book Donald Trump doesn’t want you to read,” the press release for “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” says. The book is slated to be released June 23. BOLTON THOUGHT TRUMP-ZELENSKY CALL WOULD BE A 'DISASTER' “Drawn from his personal participation in key events, and filled with perspective and humor, Bolton covers an array of topics—chaos in the White House, sure, but also assessments of major players, the President’s inconsistent, scattershot decision-making process, and his dealings...
    (CNN)When police discovered human remains on Chad Daybell's property, they may have taken a step closer to answering a question that family, friends and many others have been asking for months: where are Tylee Ryan and Joshua "JJ" Vallow?Each turn in the search for the missing 7-year-old boy his 17-year-old sister has been sharp and unexpected as their loved ones pleaded with their vanished mother and her husband to bring them back home safely.

    Attorney General William Barr appeared to undercut President Donald Trump’s claim that he visited the White House bunker “for inspection.” Barr discussed the situation with Fox News anchor Bret Baier during a Monday interview, and he said that the Secret Service had recommended the president be taken to the bunker because the situation outside the White House had gotten bad enough to warrant extra precautions. WATCH: Barr was defending the decision to move the perimeter away from the White House, pushing protesters out of Lafayette Park and away from St. John’s Church, when he let slip that one detail with regard to the reason for Trump’s trip to the bunker. “Monday, we were reacting to three days of extremely...
    Amy Cooper, the woman nicknamed "Central Park Karen" after she was caught on camera calling the police on a black birdwatcher, has been given her dog back. A rescue organization temporarily took custody of the pup for evaluation after the video went viral.  Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Inc., the organization Cooper adopted her dog, Henry, from, said that they have returned the dog following her request.

    In April, Carhartt, the workwear company out of Dearborn, Michigan, pivoted from announcing new types of brown pants and jackets to making medical masks and gowns, aiming to help the “men and women working on the front line,” with the gear they need to protect themselves. The company said, “As long as these critical items are in short supply, Carhartt will continue to assist in production.” Carhartt is producing 50,000 medical gowns and 2.5 million masks, since stockpiles of personal protective equipment will be needed to avoid any catastrophic shortages. The company has gained fashion cred with teens for its woolen beanies, and is known for making rugged, durable wear for men and women. “We had to transition everything from...
    President Trump acknowledges that he went to the bunker underneath the White House Friday, but claimed he did so more for an "inspection." He also said that he went in the afternoon, not in the evening as had been reported, when the scene outside the White House became much more chaotic.  In a Fox News Radio interview Wednesday, the president said he was only in the bunker for "a short period of time" and claimed the Secret Service had told him it would be a good time to look at the bunker because "maybe sometime you're going to need it."  The New York Times first reported the president went to the bunker Friday night for nearly an hour as protests...
    President Trump denied that he was taken to an underground White House bunker during tumultuous protests in Washington D.C. this past weekend and pushed back on criticism of his walk Monday to the historic St. John's Episcopal Church. In an interview Wednesday on the "Brian Kilmeade Show," the president said that the mainstream media was to blame for both narratives. "Well, it was a false report. I wasn't [there]. I went down during the day and I was there for a tiny little short period of time and it was much more for an inspection," he remarked. "There was no problem during the day. The problem -- I saw Leland [Vitter] got whacked pretty good, but that was during the night. And, this...

    (CNN)The moment was made for TV. With a protest just beyond the White House complex, President Donald Trump made a last-minute decision to give a brief address asserting his authority to impose order on US streets -- then departed the White House and walked across a zone freshly cleared by mounted police, to stand with a Bible outside St. John's Church across Lafayette Square. The church had suffered damage in a fire Sunday night. Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington said after Trump's walk that she was "outraged.""I am outraged. The President did not pray when he came to St. John's, nor as you just articulated, did he acknowledge the agony of our country right now,"...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - An Illinois man who allegedly traveled to Minneapolis to participate in riots after the death of George Floyd has been arrested and charged with federal counts, after prosecutors say videos posted to his Facebook page showed him handing out explosives and damaging property.
