Woman Dictating LA County Shutdowns Isn’t a Medical Doctor, Paid More than $500K
Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Dr. Barbara Ferrer made news Tuesday when she told the county’s board of Supervisors that the “Safer at Home” order would almost certainly be extended for three more months when it expired May 15. Outrage ensued, and the Board of Supervisors and Ferrer herself walked back those comments. Turns out that walk-back was just a giant “psych!” because Ferrer announced the new order Wednesday – one with no expiration date. But, give her credit for being literal – it wasn’t a three-month extension...
Brad Johnson, a retired 25-year veteran officer of the CIA, laments that in recent years he has seen our nation’s Intelligence Community “turn away from its core responsibilities” – i.e., promoting “the safety and security of all Americans” – and embrace “a far more political agenda.” He notes, for example, that the Intelligence Community’s 2017 quadrennial report about global trends “overwhelmingly” supports “global government integration” and the “globalist movement,” which he describes as “a hardcore leftist philosophy that is deeply political” and antithetical to the concept of national sovereignty.
President Obama was aware of the details of wiretapped conversations of then-incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak back in December 2016, according to recently declassified Department of Justice (DOJ) documents released on Thursday.
Nancy Pelosi is the leader of a party that has accused the president and the 63 million Americans who voted for him of betraying their country, destroying its Constitution, colluding with its enemies, causing the deaths of thousands of coronavirus victims, and hating immigrants, Muslims, people of color, gays, and women. According to Pelosi and the Democrats, Trump is so dangerous a threat to the republic that he must be removed before the next election, although it is only months away.
The campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has repeatedly insisted that journalists “rigorously vet” the claims of former Biden staffer Tara Reade, who says she was sexually harassed while working in Biden’s Senate office and sexually assaulted by Biden himself in 1993. But Biden is refusing to allow public access to his senatorial archives, even though it may contain records that could shed light on Reade’s accusations — and even as his own campaign operatives have themselves accessed the papers in the past year.
I know what you’re thinking. He’s an animal, obviously. He threw a young staffer up against a cold marble wall in an isolated chamber of the Capitol’s labyrinthine corridors and reached under her skirt. When she struggled to free herself from the senator and managed to wriggle away, he angrily pointed a finger in her face and said accusingly and with a “tight” voice, “You’re nothing to me. You’re nothing!” before leaving her disheveled and confused up against the wall and walking away. What a monster! What an animal!
How Does Nancy Pelosi Get Away With Blocking Desperately Needed Relief Aid?
Pelosi didn’t stand in the way of aid for just an hour or two, or a day or two. She stonewalled for two weeks while small-business people across the country struggled to stay afloat in a time in which public fear of the coronavirus and government stay-at-home orders reduced their business incomes to zero.
