    In early March, when various plans of dealing with the coronavirus were being debated, the choices were shown to us via a curve. Two extremes were presented to us. In the first scenario, we could go on with business as usual and the curve would nearly immediately turn upward and would peak quickly. It would also fall as fast as it rose. The obvious disadvantage to this choice is that the hospitals would be crushed trying to provide care for such a huge influx of patients at one time. The second option, and the one the U.S. ultimately chose, was...

Trump said at a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

    hina has said it would respond if the United States deployed intermediate-range missiles to the Asia-Pacific region and warned U.S. allies not to accept such weapons. Chinese Defense Ministry spokesperson Senior Colonel Wu Qian told a press briefing Wednesday in Beijing that "China is firmly opposed to the deployment of intermediate-range missiles by the U.S. in the Asia-Pacific region." The Pentagon was long barred from deploying such weapons as a result of a 1987 treaty with Russia but President Donald Trump's administration left the deal last August and has since signaled a willingness to confront China, and China has threatened...

    China warned Japan against pursuing a new national security strategy following reports of discussions at Tokyo's National Security Council. Beijing foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said Wednesday at a regular press briefing that the "world knows" of hidden intentions, when asked to comment about reported developments in Japan. "People of the world know of the intentions of Sima Zhao," the Chinese spokesman said, referring to a military general who ruled during the Three Kingdoms period of China. According to chronicles of ancient Chinese history, Sima Zhao crushed internal opposition and took control of the state of Cao Wei, which had...

    On Wednesday, BET Founder Robert Johnson mocked those who are destroying statues across the U.S. and who are trying to cancel television shows because they think that?s what black people want. During an interview with Fox News, Johnson said that those who are destroying statues across the country ?have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying ?Oh, my God, look at these white people. They?re doing something so important to us. They?re taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South.'? ?You know, black people, in my opinion, black...

    The American Mind ^ | 10/31/2018
    Following Trump's lead?and Lincoln's. Many conservatives did not see that Trump had framed the 2016 election as a choice between two mutually exclusive regimes: multiculturalism and America. What I call ?multiculturalism? includes ?identity politics? and ?political correctness.? If multiculturalism continues to worm its way into the public mind, it will ultimately destroy America. Consequently, the election should have been seen as a contest between a woman who, perhaps without quite intending it, was leading a movement to destroy America and a man who wanted to save America. The same contest is being played out in the midterm elections. I realize...

    Park was set to reopen on July 17, but no new date was announced Disney said on Wednesday it will delay the reopening of its Disneyland resort and theme park and did not offer up a new date. ?The State of California has now indicated that it will not issue theme park reopening guidelines until sometime after July 4. Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government...

    Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers activated the National Guard on Wednesday after protesters toppled two statues, vandalized buildings and a state senator was attacked outside the Capitol during a night of violence that erupted following daylong protests. The guardsmen will protect state properties and "make sure people can exercise their First Amendment rights while ensuring the safety of members of the public and state buildings and infrastructure," Gov. Tony Evers said. The unrest that unfolded Tuesday night began after 200 to 300 protesters marched through downtown Madison and escalated once they reached the state Capitol grounds. Some tried breaking into the...

    Investigators will need to secure testimony from Strzok, fired two years ago from the FBI, to be certain of the exact meaning and intent of his one paragraph of notes, which were made public in court on Wednesday. But they appear to illuminate an extraordinary high-level effort by outgoing Obama-era officials during the first weekend of January to find a way to sustain a counterintelligence investigation of Flynn in the absence of any evidence of wrongdoing. The Justice Department says the notes were written between Jan. 3-5, 2017, the very weekend the FBI agent who had investigated Flynn?s ties to...

    So bunches of young folks are bragging that they used TikTok to scoop up blocks of tickets to Donald Trump?s big rally and depress attendance. Including the daughter of onetime John McCain campaign strategist, if one can grant such a loser that much credit, Steve Schmidt. Well, isn?t that hilarious? Here?s something more engrossing yet: There?s one word for what these perps claim to have pulled off ? fraud. Under case law in Oklahoma, ?the elements of a common-law action for fraud are: 1) a material misrepresentation, 2) knowingly or recklessly made, 3) with intent that it be relied upon,...

    The Church of England has again apologised for its links to slavery, after a report revealed nearly 100 clergymen were paid compensation after its abolition. The state church said on Thursday that its ties to slavery were a ?source of shame? after a University College London report revealed that 99 of its clergy had received compensation for lost property and earnings in slave colonies. The money was paid out in accordance with the Abolition of Slavery Act of 1833 when the UK government bought the freedom of every slave in the British Empire, and banned the practice. However, the compensation...
