‘It makes me sick’: Doctor buries Trump for holding indoor rally as pandemic death toll nears 200,000

Published

A top vaccinologist on Monday slammed President Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and he said all of the needless death caused by the disease in the United States made him feel “sick.”

Dr. Peter Hotez, the co-director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, slammed the president for holding an indoor rally in Nevada as the death toll in the United States approaches 200,000 people.

“This is the White House telling us that they really have a callous disregard for human life,” Hotez said. “Let’s face it, this is not a rookie mistake, right? This virus entered into New York City from Europe about eight months ago, so we’re eight months into this horrible epidemic where the United States is at the epicenter of we have more deaths than any other country by a long shot.”

Hotez then pointed to Canada, which recently recorded its first day in months where it had no deaths from COVID-19.

“The fact that Canada now is celebrating zero deaths, we could have done the same thing,” he said. “We could have had an amazing fall with opening up schools safely, colleges safely, and instead we decided to thumb our noses at science and the consequences are not only deaths, but permanent injury. We’re hearing more about long-lasting injury from this virus, and it just makes me sick to see.”

2020 Election

A fake ‘intelligence firm’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.

BUSTED: Commerce Secretary was on board of Chinese joint venture — while running Trump’s trade war

On Thursday, Foreign Policy reported that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross remained on the board of a Chinese joint venture — even while he was tasked with overseeing President Donald Trump's trade war.

"In Chinese corporate documents obtained by Foreign Policy, Ross is listed as serving on the board of a Chinese joint venture until January 2019 — nearly two years into his term as commerce secretary," reported Isaac Stone Fish. "That joint venture, now called Huaneng Invesco WLR (Beijing) Investment Fund Management Co., is an investment partnership formed in September 2008 between Huaneng Capital Services, the U.S. management company Invesco, and a firm Ross founded, WL Ross & Co. Huaneng Capital Services is an arm of China Huaneng Group, a major state-owned power producer."

‘Shoot Black people’: Leaked chats show far-right activists fantasizing about killing random civilians

Published

on

On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported new information from leaked chat logs about the "Boogaloo Boys," a loosely-associated movement of armed right-wing activists who have tried to use recent civil rights protests as a catalyst for widespread civil unrest.

"Although the movement has outwardly painted itself as acting defensively against gun laws, the leaked chats show members actively encouraging brutal violence, including that which would target civilians, particularly on the left," reported Kelly Weill. "And despite the movement’s stated hatred for federal agents and law enforcement, many members boasted of a cozy relationship with power, including one man who claimed to be an Army soldier working special operations with Mexican federales, and the school security guard in Long Island, who said he was angling for a cop career after interning with a local sheriff."
