>“What is becoming clearer each day is President Trump’s intent to use this chaos to create a crisis for our democracy."

A new report published Wednesday details months of willful failures to confront the coronavirus pandemic by the White House and paints President Donald Trump’s authoritarian tactics during that national crisis as an overt assault on the nation’s democratic institutions ahead of elections in November.

The report by Common Cause—titled “Intentional Disregard: Trump’s Authoritarianism During the Covid-19 Pandemic,” (pdf)—highlights Trump’s coronavirus response as part of a larger effort by the president to attack U.S. democracy.

As evidence to support its thesis, Common Cause points to the president’s repeated claim that mail-in voting—favored by 58% of Americans according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday—will result in a “rigged” election. The report also shows how the administration is actively undermining the U.S. Postal Service by naming a top GOP donor with no USPS experience as postmaster general.

“None of President Trump’s efforts to thwart oversight of his administration’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic come as a surprise. Throughout his presidency, Trump has abused his power to avoid accountability and install loyalists in key oversight positions.”
—Common Cause

“The Trump administration’s failed response to the Covid-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented public health crisis leading to a worsening economic crisis. What is becoming clearer each day is President Trump’s intent to use this chaos to create a crisis for our democracy,” said Common Cause president Karen Hobert Flynn.

Free Hong Kong protesters held a peaceful rally in New York City on Sunday.

The "Delay No More, Democracy Now" gathering was hosted by New Yorkers Supporting Hong Kong, a NYC-based volunteer group formed to aid the democratic movement in Hong Kong as the resistance fights for autonomy from Communist China.

Signs were laid out in Times Square with "Global Solidarity" painted across them, aligning the "We Are All Hong Kongers" theme. Protestors sang "Glory to Hong Kong," the anthem of the Hong Kong protests, as others waved the Hong Kong flag alongside the American flag. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed communists in America burned the nation's symbol on Independence Day.

???????????????!
Thanks everyone for coming to our rally today!
We are all Hongkongers!#?????????? pic.twitter.com/kquZjjC86y— NY4HK - New Yorkers Supporting Hong Kong (@NY4HK) August 3, 2020

Participants were urged to cover in unidentifiable clothing to protect themselves against the National Security Law, NY4HK organizers noted on the group's Facebook event page.

In June, Chinese legislature unanimously passed a new national security law for Hong Kong that could deem anything a threat to "national security" under its provisions. "Secession," "subversion," "terrorism" and "collusion with foreign forces" incur maximum penalties of life imprisonment. But these offences are so broadly defined that they can become catch-all circumstances used in politically-motivated prosecutions.

Hong Kong is historically a Chinese city and was forcibly removed from China to serve as a gateway for British opium. I do not understand why these demonstrators are complaining about its return to China, except to take over local power themselves under the cloak of defending "democracy". Moreover, it is natural that China wants to re-impose its law there. This is provided for in the retrocession act: the laws of the whole of China will have to be applied to the whole of the Chinese territory. Why is that a problem? It is the same in any sovereign state (as it is also the case in the USA).

Moreover by its geographical position, the Chinese demography and the rise in power of China (military and economic), a return of HK to it is inevitable no matter what other nations say, who by preaching democracy only want to weaken China. It is thus a game of external and internal powers in which HK is only a pawn.

The coronavirus pandemic threatens America with a new wave of homelessness due to a cratering economy, expiring unemployment stimulus payments and vanishing renter protections.

What they're saying: "I've never seen this many people poised to lose their housing in such a short period of time," said Bill Faith of the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio [to AP].

The big picture: 23 million Americans are at risk of eviction and exposure to the shelter system during a pandemic, the AP reports, citing the Aspen Institute.
- The latest Census Bureau [Household Pulse Survey] found last week that more than 26.5% of American adults 18 or older questioned whether they would be able to make last month's rent or mortgage payment or had little or no confidence they could pay next month, the AP notes.

Many lower-income Americans initially got by on credit cards and stimulus checks, National Apartment Association CEO Bob Pinnegar told Axios' Kim Hart.
- Now those options are gone. "The hole that they're getting in from a financial standpoint is going to take years for them to dig out of, if they ever can."

Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.

Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them "mafia tactics" used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street.

"There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in," Martinez wrote in his Facebook post. "... All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?"

How did CNN report this moment? “Biden clarifies that he has not taken cognitive test,” their headline reads. Actually, it’s a full flip-flop; Biden claimed in June that he’d been “constantly” tested on cognition. Now, however, it’s akin to taking a drug test, or something:

BIDEN: "No, I haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? C'mon man. That's like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you're taking cocaine or not, what do you think huh? Are you a junkie?" pic.twitter.com/f6UMPJq381

— Trump War Room – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) August 5, 2020

“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden said during an interview with the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists that’s set to air in full on Thursday.

“Come on, man. That’s like saying you, before you got on this program, you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” Biden said, becoming testy with the reporter who asked whether he had taken a cognitive test.

“Testy”? Did Biden really just challenge CBS reporter Errol Barnett to prove he’s not a junkie? Naaah … or at least I don’t think that was Biden’s point. The problem is that it’s impossible to tell what Biden’s point is, except that he’s changed his mind on taking cognition tests, and that they are somehow like random drug testing in his fevered brain.

It's a catch-22. If Biden starts trying to prove he's more mentally competent that brings his competency even more into question, which is the point. The (R) narrative is changing from Trump being a secret genius savior, to Biden somehow being more mentally disabled than Donald "Covid's a Liberal Hoax" Trump's stroked-out lifelong idiocy. Taking the high road is the smartest option here.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday rejected a request to halt the construction of the border wall along the US-Mexico border.

In a 5-4 ruling on ideological lines, with five conservatives in the majority and four liberals in dissent, the court declined the request from two groups, the Sierra Club and Southern Border Communities Coalition. Sierra Club is an environmental group. The Southern Border Communities Coalition says it advocates for people living in border areas.

The case has its origins from when President Donald Trump had declared a national emergency in February 2019 to build the border wall along the southern border after the Congress provided only $1.375 billion for the border wall construction, far less than the $5.7 billion requested by the administration. The White House then identified an extra $6.7 billion from other government accounts to fund the border wall construction, including $2.5 billion from Defense Department, $3.6 billion from military construction funds, and $600 million from the Treasury Department’s assets forfeiture fund.

The case before the Supreme Court involves just the $2.5 billion in Defense Department funds. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a left-leaning legal group, had launched the lawsuit on behalf of the two groups. The non-profit organization has said it will seek to tear down sections of the wall that were built with the money.

The Supreme Court had allowed the funds to be allocated in July 2019, granting an emergency request filed by the Trump administration. But the groups said in court papers that circumstances had changed since the court’s earlier ruling.

>>668961

>>
>>668945
Let other people refute it on the platform.

Your answer is that they should listen to "experts" and censor what the experts say to censor, except that this is just giving one set of politically-aligned people (whichever institution they got the expert opinion from) preference in deciding what's truth and what isn't. Which is de facto propagandizing. It'd be like if they started deleting Bernie's posts because the Heritage Foundation got itself labeled an expert on socialism and told FB that allowing the spread of communist ideas is giving people false information that will get them killed (as demonstrated by death counts from the USSR).

And it's not like they're willing to accept ideas from experts on the other side, as that panel of HCQ proponents demonstrates. Those people are all doctors, but the social media giants didn't say
>We should stay out of this, we've got doctors on both sides and no clear indication which side is full of cranks. Let's allow them to duke it out and determine truth that way.
They instead just deleted the experts that don't have institutional power and kept the experts who do.

If you're okay with that, make sure to include the phrase "I trust whatever the government says as long as it's not Trump" in your retort.

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been begging rich people to return to New York City from their second-home retreats so they can pay taxes to help offset the state’s growing coronavirus-related revenue shortfall.

“I literally talk to people all day long who are now in their Hampton’s house who also lived here, or in their Hudson Valley house, or in their Connecticut weekend house, and I say, ‘You got to come back! We’ll go to dinner! I’ll buy you a drink! Come over, I’ll cook!’” the Democratic governor said Monday.

“They’re not coming back right now. And you know what else they’re thinking? ‘If I stay there, I’ll pay a lower income tax, because they don’t pay the New York City surcharge,” he added, noting the wealthiest one percent of the Empire State’s population picks up roughly 50 percent of the state’s tax burden.

The plea comes amidst dimming hopes that the federal government’s next COVID-19 relief package will contain any additional aid for struggling state and local governments.

If additional dollars don’t come to New York on top of waning revenue streams, Cuomo and other state officials have said the hit could translate to 20 percent cuts to health, education and local governments’ annual budget.

Meanwhile, Cuomo has said he’s not keen on raising taxes for the wealthy, adding it wouldn’t be enough to cover the state’s growing deficit — pegged at around $30 billion over the next two years.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo easily defeated Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tuesday in a surprise challenge to determine who will head New York’s delegation to the Democratic National Convention.

Democratic Party chairman Jay Jacobs — a Cuomo ally — fumed that he was “blindsided” when a motion was made to nominate AOC to head the delegation during an online Democratic Committee meeting.

Still, Cuomo received 218 votes compared to the 34 votes gleaned by the first-term congresswoman, who represents portions of Queens and The Bronx, Jacobs said

“It was a bad performance. AOC got 13 percent of the vote. She did vote for herself,” Jacobs said following the meeting.

Jacobs said he was disappointed because he wanted party unity before heading into the convention, which takes place in Milwaukee Aug. 17-20, though the coronavirus pandemic has scaled back in-person events.

“It surprised me. I was blindsided by it. It was bad faith,” Jacobs said.

Jacobs said it appeared that “rogue operators” were behind the AOC nomination and that he didn’t think the congresswoman herself instigated the challenge.

As governor, Cuomo is considered the de-facto head of the state Democratic Party.

Shock sounds more similar. Also they would have to lying or covering up the radiation effects in the area ( initially thought that the respiration warning could be cover for such activity.)

The coronavirus pandemic triggered the sharpest economic contraction in modern American history, the Commerce Department reported Thursday.

Gross domestic product — the broadest measure of economic activity — shrank at an annual rate of 32.9% in the second quarter as restaurants and retailers closed their doors in a desperate effort to slow the spread of the virus, which has killed more than 150,000 people in the U.S.

The economic shock in April, May and June was more than three times as sharp as the previous record — 10% in 1958 — and nearly four times the worst quarter during the Great Recession.

"Horrific," said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Markit. "We've never seen anything quite like it."

Another 1.43 million people filed for state unemployment last week, an increase of 12,000, the Labor Department reported Thursday. It was the second week in a row of increased unemployment filings and shows that the economic picture continues to remain grim.

GDP swings are typically reported at an annual rate — as if they were to continue for a full year — which can be misleading in a volatile period like this. The overall economy in the second quarter was 9.5% smaller than during the same period a year ago.

After a sharp drop in March and April, economic activity began to rebound in May and June, although that recovery remains halting and could be jeopardized by a new surge of infections.

So as a former Cop I will say this. There is a problem with "US vs them" amongst cops. My experience as a cop made you make choices that could trade your life.

I saw these officers (not all) becoming like "this is my town I just let you live here."
Any kind off as a friend council caused an accusatory feeling and many times was easier for the other officer to want to see you as an outcast because most other cops were supporting them because they were hung up in the same psychology. So these officers would see acceptance from their like minded piers and reject the truth.
Now having said that. It is incumbent of all who get into situations with police to remember that if you place him close to making a decision between your life and theirs, they will and should be willing to shoot your ass or you otherwise get injured during the arrest if non lethal and you choose to fight. All you Black people who think you special because you have more pigmentation than whites, listen up. YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL! To all you Blacks that don't think your special that last line wasn't intended for you

>Police say the suspect has been identified, but no charges had been filed as of Tuesday afternoon.

A masked man who was seen in a viral video smashing the windows of a south Minneapolis auto parts store during the George Floyd protests, earning him the moniker “Umbrella Man,” is suspected to be a member of the Hell’s Angels biker gang seeking to incite racial tension in a demonstration that until then had been peaceful, police said.

A Minneapolis police arson investigator said the man’s actions at the AutoZone on East Lake Street set off a chain reaction that led to days of looting and rioting. The building was later burned to the ground.

“This was the first fire that set off a string of fires and looting throughout the precinct and the rest of the city,” Erika Christensen wrote in a search warrant affidavit filed in court this week. “Until the actions of the person your affiant has been calling ‘Umbrella man,’ the protests had been relatively peaceful. The actions of this person created an atmosphere of hostility and tension. Your affiant believes that this individual’s sole aim was to incite violence.”

Police identified the suspect thanks to a tip that came via email last week, Christensen said.

At least two people died in the subsequent riots, which eventually spread as far as north Minneapolis and South St. Paul, and caused an estimated $500 million in damage.

Police have also connected the 32-year-old man to a widely-publicized incident in Stillwater late last month, in which a Muslim woman was confronted by a group of men wearing white supremacist garb.

Yeah, the "life over property, let them loot you got insurance, property can be replaced" crowd were actually all umbrella man, too. Umbrella man shot the "all lives matter" chick on July 4th, even.

>A cop hit a window on an Autozone therefore it's perfectly permissible to go burn, loot and murder in cities several states away, weeks after the window was broken
There is no form of this article that excuses BLM or Floyd riots.

And it's very obvious that it's all rationalizations. In certain instances lefties will say
>Well cops agitated rioting
>Or well maybe it was white supremacists
but in other instances where this excuse isn't available they don't then admit fault, they then say
>well riots are the language of the unheard
>you need violence to get a response from the system

So nothing changes except the excuse. It's clear that there's no fundamental rejection of violence, no inherent belief that maybe it's a bad thing to burn shit and hurt people unconnected to their grievances. They think they're justified in attacking whatever they want. There's just a sociopathic need to rationalize their public image later, when and if possible.

Are masks giving men a licence to leer? Women report a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' since face coverings became commonplace as an expert warns they 'provide anonymity' for threatening behaviour
-- Women online are reporting a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' from men in masks
-- Social media users are sharing stories of 'so much hard staring happening'
-- UN Women UK Executive Director said to be aware of 'anonymity masks provide'
-- Claire Barnett told FEMAIL: 'We need to create an understanding that behaviour like unwanted and persistent staring is intimidating'

Women across the country are reporting a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' since the introduction of face coverings in some public places.

New laws introduced over the weekend force customers to wear face masks in all shops, stations, banks and post offices, while it is also mandatory to wear coverings on public transport.

But many women have been sharing stories online of 'aggressive eye contact' and 'hard staring' from men wearing masks, with one tweeting: 'Grown men staring at you with a mask on is worse than when they don't have a mask.'

UN Women UK Executive Director Claire Barnett told FEMAIL: 'As we work to "build back better" following lockdown, we need to prevent the lack of witnesses of antisocial behaviour due to less populated public spaces, as well as the anonymity face coverings can provide, leading to further rises in harassment and threatening actions towards women, girls and minoritised groups.

Indeed, certain thoughts are slowly diffused in the population that lock people unconsciously into predefined behaviors. This creates a kind of soft social manipulation that gradually deprives people of their free will.

Retarded old adage from some retarded old faggot. If you get really good at something, you can also reach it. Whoever came up with that saying was a fuckin smoothbrain.
