Majority say states reopened too quickly

ew polling shows a majority of U.S. adults believe state governments reopened too quickly in the spring, a move they say fueled renewed coronavirus outbreaks nationwide.Pew Research Center that 69% of those surveyed think most states now seeing surges of new cases, such as Georgia, Florida, and Texas, reopened their economies too early in April and May without enforcing social distancing guidelines.Only about a quarter, 26%, said the proper way to revive the U.S. economy, which took a nosedive in the spring, would be to reopen businesses and schools even if there hasn’t been a significant...

Biden apology for lumping all black people together is precisely why he's been hiding during the 2020 campaign

Biden apology for lumping all black people together is precisely why he's been hiding during the 2020 campaign

It was only a matter of time before one of the people physically propping Joe Biden up would tell him that he needed to take back what he said about black American voters. And it came quickly.In Thursday night, Biden said he wanted to "clarify" comments he had made earlier in the day and that "in no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all." In fact, he said he had been a firsthand witness to "the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community."You could almost hear his knees...

Tennessee Valley Authority bends to Trump and says it won’t lay off US workers

The Tennessee Valley Authority is abandoning plans to lay off dozens of U.S. technology workers after President Trump, in a broadside against the power company earlier this week, fired two of its board members.“We were wrong in not fully understanding the impact on our employees, especially during the pandemic,” said Jeff Lyash, TVA’s CEO, in a statement Thursday.

The American public holds media in contempt. The public is right

The establishment media continues to become more and more unpopular — for a very good reason.A major survey came out this week showing deep distrust in the media, and then a top producer at MSNBC and a recently deposed opinion editor from the New York Times aired their own biting critiques. The message from all three is that the media has forfeited professional standards and ethics. The message is correct.“We are a cancer and there is no cure.” That’s what “a successful and insightful TV veteran” told Ariana N. Pekary, who two days ago quit her job as a producer for MSNBC’s The Last Word...

For a guy whose greatest professional achievement was when he served as the vice president to America’s first black commander in chief, Joe Biden sure does not sound like a guy who respects black people.The presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee claimed in that there is diversity of thought in the Latino community in the United States, unlike in the black community, which he apparently thinks is monolithic and single-minded.“Are you going to reengage with Cuba?” asked NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro, referring to Temporary Protected Status. “I’m specifically wondering about the Florida communities...

It was a very bad bet.The cartels have shown their gratitude only with unrestrained violence. Some 31,000 people were in Mexico in 2019. The measure of this loss is truly catastrophic....

Really, in the HIV epidemic, somebody may have a heart attack but also have HIV — the hospital would prefer the [classification] for HIV because there’s greater reimbursement,” Redfield during a House panel hearing Friday when asked by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer about potential “perverse incentives.”Redfield continued:...
