Nearly 200 Georgia residents being monitored for coronavirus; 97 new deaths in China | 12 Feb 2020 | Georgia health officials announced on Tuesday that roughly 200 residents were self-monitoring for the coronavirus after recently returning from China. None of the residents have shown symptoms of the virus or visited Hubei province -- the epicenter of the outbreak. Health officials reportedly didn't use the word quarantine, instead, phrasing it that people are being isolated in their homes for 14 days, which is considered the virus's incubation period, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. A new paper by Chinese scientists says the period could be as long as 24 days.

Photos posted by the Republican Party of Duval County showed Trump-Pence placards and bumper stickers strewn around the parking lot, along with the toppled tent.

Michael Bennet drops out of presidential race

Michael Bennet drops out of presidential race | 11 Feb 2020 | Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet is ending his presidential run, following a lackluster performance in the New Hampshire primary. The Colorado Democrat tried to break in with moderate voters in his party's 2020 primary, but he rarely registered in the polls and was unable to make any of the Democratic National Committee's debates after the initial two. Bennet had 0.3 percent of the vote in New Hampshire with about one-fifth of precincts reporting.

Trial team quits Roger Stone case in dispute over sentence

Trial team quits Roger Stone case in dispute over sentence | 12 Feb 2020 | The four lawyers who prosecuted Roger Stone quit the case Tuesday after the Justice Department overruled them and said it would take the extraordinary step of lowering the amount of prison time it would seek for President Donald Trump's longtime ally and confidant. The departures raised immediate questions over whether Trump, who earlier in the day had blasted the original sentencing recommendation as "very horrible and unfair," had at least indirectly exerted his will on a Justice Department that he often views as an arm of the White House. The department said the decision to undo the sentencing recommendation was made Monday night -- before Trump's tweet -- and prosecutors had not spoken to the White House about it.

DOJ expected to scale back Roger Stone's 'extreme' sentencing recommendation - official

DOJ expected to scale back Roger Stone's 'extreme' sentencing recommendation - official | 11 Feb 2020 | The Justice Department is preparing to change its sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone after top brass were "shocked" at the stiff prison term initially being sought, according to a senior DOJ official. Federal prosecutors had recommended that Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentence Stone to between 87 and 108 months in prison for his conviction on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements to Congress on charges that stemmed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. "The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night," the official told Fox News. "The sentencing recommendation was not what had been briefed to the Department." The department is now expected to scale that back.

Bloomberg heard in 2015 audio clip defending ‘stop and frisk,’ throwing minority kids against wall - report

Bloomberg heard in 2015 audio clip defending ‘stop and frisk,’ throwing minority kids against wall - report | 11 Feb 2020 | A newly-surfaced recording from a 2015 speech by Michael Bloomberg, in which the former three-term mayor of New York City gives a full-throated defense of the controversial policing procedure known as "stop and frisk," is threatening to undermine the 2020 presidential candidate's subsequent apologies for backing the policy and hurt his status with minority voters. In an audio clip of a 2015 speech, the billionaire gave to the Aspen Institute, Bloomberg acknowledged that "stop and frisk," targeted minority "kids" who cops must throw "up against the wall" to disarm. The Aspen Times reported at the time that Bloomberg representatives asked the Institute not to distribute footage of his appearance.

Andrew Yang ends 2020 presidential campaign

Andrew Yang ends 2020 presidential campaign | 11 Feb 2020 | Andrew Yang suspended his political campaign on Tuesday in New Hampshire, ending the upstart run that vaulted the businessman from complete obscurity to a Democratic contender backed by a devoted following known as the Yang Gang. "While there is great work left to be done, you know I am the math guy, and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race," Yang told supporters in Manchester... Yang's decision comes a week after a disappointing finish in Iowa, where the campaign invested millions and spent two weeks on a bus tour leading up to the caucuses.

President Trump's budget calls for $11.7 billion foreign aid cut

President Trump's budget calls for $11.7 billion foreign aid cut --Officials say it is often wasted. | 09 Feb 2020 | President Trump will move for a dramatic $11.7 billion cut in foreign aid in his annual federal budget set to be released this week, The Post has learned. The proposed 21 percent cut is in line with Trump's "America First" mantra and will be achieved largely by scrapping economic development aid to other countries, officials said. "Every country gets this type of development aid [and] we don’t think it serves a significant purpose to be able to continue it," a senior administration official told The Post. "We're cutting $4,800 to send American artists to a poetry festival in Finland...and $10,000 to support the Muppet Retrospectical in New Zealand," another official said. The first official added: "The Bob Dylan statue in Mozambique, the cricket league in Afghanistan, these are things that we just think are wasteful, and they’re largely funded out of economic development."

Biden to bail on New Hampshire primary-night party and head to South Carolina instead | 11 Feb 2020 | Joe Biden is flying to South Carolina on Tuesday night, bailing at the last minute on his planned New Hampshire primary-night party ahead of another expected loss. The former vice president's abrupt change of plans comes as his campaign scrambles to keep his base of African-American support from crumbling under the weight of a fourth-place finish in Iowa and another potentially poor showing here. Biden told reporters Tuesday in New Hampshire he's leaving because there are "significant portions of the electorate who haven't voted yet."

Klobuchar rolls out seven-figure ad buy in Nevada | 11 Feb 2020 | Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) presidential campaign rolled out a new ad campaign in Nevada as it seeks to maintain its momentum from last week's debate.

The ads will air on cable, broadcast and digital three days before the start of Nevada's early voting period. Klobuchar focuses on her policies on popular issues for Democrats and trashes President Trump in the ads.

Sanders wins New Hampshire primary

Sanders wins New Hampshire primary | 11 Feb 2020 | Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night, delivering a victory for his campaign after a muddled result in Iowa that produced no clear winner. NBC and ABC News both projected Sanders would win the primary at roughly 11 p.m. ET. The result is significant for Sanders, though it was expected after he defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton easily in New Hampshire’s primary four years ago. Sanders was also ahead in the most recent polls taken in the Granite State.

Biden, Warren on ropes after delegate shutout

Biden, Warren on ropes after delegate shutout | 11 Feb 2020 | Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) fell short of winning any delegates in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary, raising new questions about their viability as presidential candidates ahead of a long slog toward the next contests on the calendar. The results of Tuesday's vote, in which Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) narrowly held off former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, represented a substantial blow to both Biden and Warren. Their vote totals combined did not equal the surprise third-place finisher, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who surged after a strong debate performance on Friday.

Trump swipes at resigned prosecutors, judge in Roger Stone case

Trump swipes at resigned prosecutors, judge in Roger Stone case | 11 Feb 2020 | President Trump on Tuesday swiped at the prosecutors and judge in the case of longtime confidant Roger Stone amid the fallout of the Justice Department's decision to intervene in Stone's sentencing recommendation. Trump weighed in on the sentencing late Tuesday even as Democrats and critics expressed alarm that the president seemed to be blurring the line between the executive branch and the Department of Justice (DOJ). "Who are the four prosecutors (Mueller people?) who cut and ran after being exposed for recommending a ridiculous 9 year prison sentence to a man that got caught up in an investigation that was illegal, the Mueller Scam, and shouldn’t ever even have started? 13 Angry Democrats?" Trump tweeted. Trump late Tuesday also swiped at D.C. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is overseeing the Stone case, implying she had treated his former campaign chairman unfairly. "Is this the Judge that put Paul Manafort in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, something that not even mobster Al Capone had to endure? How did she treat Crooked Hillary Clinton? Just asking!" Trump tweeted.

Bernie Sanders wins New Hampshire primary and becomes new front-runner for Democratic nomination | 11 Feb 2020 | Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will clinch victory Tuesday night in first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire, according to a CNN projection, cementing his status as the race's front-runner in a win powered by his strength among blue-collar, younger and more liberal voters. As the senator from a neighboring state who beat Hillary Clinton by 22 points in the 2016 Democratic primary, Sanders was expected to do well in the Granite State. "This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump," Sanders said.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd under fire for suggesting Sanders supporters are 'digital brown shirt brigade' | 10 Feb 2020 | MSNBC anchor [and sack of Deep-State garbage] Chuck Todd is facing backlash on Monday night for suggesting that supporters for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., are part of a "digital brown shirt brigade." During a panel discussion on Sanders's surge ahead of the New Hampshire primary, Todd cited a column critical of Sanders' online support. "I want to bring up something that Jonathan Last put in The Bulwark today," Todd began. "Here's what he says, 'No other candidate has anything like this digital brown shirt brigade. I mean, except for Donald Trump. The question that no one is asking is this; what if you can't win the presidency without an online mob..." Sanders's national press secretary, Briahna Gray, blasted the Nazi-inspired comparison. "'Digital brown shirt brigade.' That's how our Jewish candidate's supporters are being described on the MSM. The contempt shown for ordinary people is really something," Gray tweeted.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt in the Democratic primary. MSNBC anchor Ari Melber spoke to voters in Manchester, N.H., on Tuesday afternoon as the nation's first primary was underway and stumbled upon a woman who cast her vote for the progressive frontrunner. "I voted for Bernie -- although there are a number of candidates that I really like, so when I finished voting, I was still undecided including Elizabeth [Warren], including Michael Bennet for that matter," the voter responded. "...[B]ut I want to say the reason that I went with Bernie is because of MSNBC." "...[T]he kind of 'Stop Bernie' cynicism that I've heard from a number of people. I watch MSNBC constantly, so I've heard that from a number of commentators. It made me angry enough, I said, 'Okay, Bernie's got my vote.'"

'Never Trump' Republicans backing Joe Biden in NH primary, emails show | 10 Feb 2020 | Embittered "Never Trump" Republicans tied to former Ohio Gov. [Deep State pro-TPP scum-bag] John Kasich have secretly schemed to assist Joe Biden's campaign -- because they think he's the only Democrat who can beat the president and help them get "revenge," The Post has learned. Emails obtained by The Post show that two top staffers from Kasich's failed, 2016 primary campaign and Ohio's former GOP chairman, a Kasich ally, were among those involved in efforts to boost support for the former vice president in last week's [purposefully] botched Iowa caucus and Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.
