Oregon County Orders White People to Wear Face Masks, Others Exempted From Directive

Oregon County Orders White People to Wear Face Masks, Others Exempted From Directive | 23 June 2020 | Lincoln County, Oregon, has exempted non-white people from a new order requiring that face coverings be worn in public -- to prevent racial profiling. Health officials announced last week residents must wear face coverings in public settings where they may come within six feet of another individual who is not from the same household. But people of color do not have to follow the new rule if they have "heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment" over wearing the masks, officials said. "No person shall intimidate or harass people who do not comply," health officials said.

Trump Authorizes Law Enforcement to Arrest and Prosecute Anyone Attempting to Destroy Statues on Federal Property

Trump Authorizes Law Enforcement to Arrest and Prosecute Anyone Attempting to Destroy Statues on Federal Property | 23 June 2020 | President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that he has "authorized" law enforcement officials to arrest anyone attempting to destroy historic statues on federal property. The President's declaration comes hours after radical leftists attempted to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson which stands in full view of the White House. Trump cited the Veteran's Memorial Preservation Act, which addresses the destruction of statues commemorating those who have served in America's armed forces. The Act reads in part: Whoever...willfully injures or destroys, or attempts to injure or destroy, any structure, plaque, statue, or other monument on public property commemorating the service of any person or persons in the armed forces of the United States shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.

Gavin Newsom hands out fracking permits to connected driller

Oh dear. Looks like deep-state dirt-bag Gavin Newsom is a complete and utter 'woke' fraud: Gavin Newsom hands out fracking permits to connected driller | 22 June 2020 | On June 1, in the midst of the turmoil created by the coronavirus pandemic and the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, California Gov. Gavin Newsom's administration quietly issued 12 fracking permits to Aera Energy, a joint venture owned by ExxonMobil and Shell. Oil drilling in California has faced criticism for its disproportionately negative health impacts on Latino communities and other people of color. The 12 new permits will be for fracking in the Lost Hills Oil Field. The Kern County town of Lost Hills is more than 97 percent Latino, according to 2010 U.S. Census data... Aera, which also received 24 permits from the California Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM) on April 3 during the early days of COVID-19, has well-connected lobbyists in its corner who work for the firm Axiom Advisors. One of them, Jason Kinney, headed up Newsom's 2018 transition team and formerly served as a senior advisor to Newsom while he was lieutenant governor. He is also a senior advisor to California's Senate Democrats. The other, Kevin Schmidt, previously served as policy director for Newsom when the latter was lieutenant governor.

Trump says Obama may have committed treason | 22 June 2020 | President Trump on Monday suggested that his predecessor, former President Obama, committed treason in connection with the [fraudulent] investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign's contacts with Russia. "Treason. Treason. It's treason," Trump said in an interview with CBN News. The president did not elaborate on the specific charge but repeated his assertion that the previous administration "spied" on his campaign in the course of the Russia probe. "They'd been spying on my campaign," Trump told CBN News. "Turned out I was right. Let's see what happens to them now." Trump signaled he was looking forward to the results of U.S. Attorney John Durham's ongoing investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation, calling the Connecticut prosecutor "highly respected" and praising Attorney General William Barr.

Elderly Chinese man forced to walk 590 miles to relatives' home after being banned from public transport because he doesn't have a smartphone to prove he is free of coronavirus --The man spent two weeks walking from one province to another in China --Chinese citizens must use a smartphone app to get around due to COVID-19 | 22 June 2020 | The elderly man from Anhui province of eastern China was travelling to Zhejiang, a neighbouring region. He was said to have no children and hope to stay with his relatives and find a job there. He was stopped from using public transport because he didn't have a smartphone to prove he was free of coronavirus, according to the local media Cover News. Since the coronavirus outbreak erupted late last year, Chinese citizens have been required to produce a health code on their smartphones before being allowed to enter public places or use public transport. Without the dedicated barcode, people can be forbidden from boarding a subway, checking into a hotel or going into a supermarket.

WWII monument in Charlotte defaced with hammer and sickle

WWII monument in Charlotte defaced with hammer and sickle | 22 June 2020 | A World War II memorial in North Carolina's largest city was reportedly defaced over the weekend with a hammer and sickle. The 20-foot-tall memorial, located at Evergreen Cemetery in Charlotte, contains the names of more than 500 county residents who died fighting in WWII, WBTV reported. Somewhere between Sunday evening and Monday morning, it was defaced with references to communism, including a hammer and sickle and the words: "Glory to the day of heroism June 19, 1986." The phrase is a reference to a prison massacre in Peru, in which some 224 people were killed by the military after a series of riots.

The Hartford Courant, joining other news organizations across the nation, to capitalize 'B' in the word Black

The Hartford Courant, joining other news organizations across the nation, to capitalize 'B' in the word Black | 22 June 2020 | Quoting the Courant: To our readers: Effective today, The Hartford Courant is joining other news organizations across the nation in capitalizing the "B" in the word Black when referring to people. This change recognizes that the word Black means an ethnic identity. We believe this is a necessary update to our style policy. The change was announced internally Friday and the policy will take effect in today's newspaper, online at courant.com and at all properties that are part of The Hartford Courant Media Group. This decision comes amid broad discussion in the industry on this issue and follows discussion as well inside The Courant's newsroom. While this is an important change as it pertains to our coverage, we recognize much more work remains regarding diversity and inclusion. ['Much work remains?' Odd, because if you've subscribed to the Courant for years, you'd note that the Courant's foremost concern -- aside from promoting and backing endless wars (not to mention, the 2000 coup which installed the George W. Bush regime), the outsourcing of every American job, and working 24/7 to destroy the U.S. middle class on the altar of globalism -- is identity politics. Most people think The New York Times and Washington Post are the most egregious deep-state rags in the United States. In fact, they are not. It is absolutely the Hartford Courant. --LRP]

Statues of Washington, Grant, abolitionist lumped in with Confederates, toppled amid protests

Statues of Washington, Grant, abolitionist lumped in with Confederates, toppled amid protests | 22 June 2020 | Historic monuments and statues have become the targets of anger and vandalism during Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd's police custody death at the end of May. The initial statues under fire were Confederate soldiers and generals largely in the South due to the treatment of African-Americans, but the anger has spread to monuments of all backgrounds -- including former U.S. presidents -- many of which have been torn down, and some have been officially removed. The targets of rage have gone beyond the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial, and the statue of Gen. Casimir Pulaski on the National Mall in Washington around Juneteenth on Friday, the day marking the end of slavery in the United States. Protesters toppled the only statue of a Confederate general -- Albert Pike -- in the nation's capital and set it on fire on Friday.

Officials said it hasn't been determined when the Roosevelt statue will be removed and where it will go.

Coronavirus is weakening, could disappear on its own without a vaccine, says infectious disease clinic head

Coronavirus is weakening, could disappear on its own without a vaccine, says infectious disease clinic head | 21 June 2020 | An Italian infectious disease doctor believes the coronavirus has become less dangerous -- and could disappear on its own without a vaccine. Dr. Matteo Bassetti, the head of the infectious diseases clinic at the San Martino hospital, said the virus appears to have become less potent, possibly due to genetic mutations, the Sunday Telegraph reported. "The clinical impression I have is that the virus is changing in severity," Bassetti told the outlet... "It was like an aggressive tiger in March and April but now it’s like a wild cat," Bassetti said. "Even elderly patients, aged 80 or 90, are now sitting up n bed and they are breathing without help. The same patients would have died in two or three days before." It's possible that the virus will be eradicated before researchers find a vaccine, he said.

Graham signals he won't take up U.S. attorney pick without Schumer, Gillibrand sign-off

Graham signals he won't take up U.S. attorney pick without Schumer, Gillibrand sign-off | 20 June 2020 | Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman [neocon sack of garbage] Lindsey Graham (R-Deep-State-S.C.) signaled on Saturday that he will not move forward with a nomination for the U.S. attorney for Manhattan without sign-off from two Democratic senators. Graham said he would wait to receive a "blue slip" -- a sheet of paper that indicates whether a home-state senator supports a nomination -- before moving forward with a new nominee to be the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. If Graham sticks with his position, that would give Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) leverage to try to block the administration's nominee for the spot from being confirmed by the Senate by not returning their blue slips. Graham's position would mark a significant roadblock for the administration's plan to nominate Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton to be the next Senate-confirmed U.S. attorney for Manhattan.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said the Justice Department’s request to suppress the tell-all book on national security grounds would be impossible to enforce, but criticized Bolton's decision to move ahead with publication without the explicit go-ahead from the government." While Bolton's unilateral conduct raises grave national security concerns, the government has not established that an injunction is an appropriate remedy," Lamberth wrote.

Other states with mask orders include New York, Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, Delaware and Maryland [and Connecticut].

Gov. Roy Cooper vetoes bill to reopen gyms, bars in North Carolina

Gov. Roy Cooper vetoes bill to reopen gyms, bars in North Carolina | 19 June 2020 | Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a bill aiming to reopen gyms and bars in North Carolina temporarily. Though the bill specifically provided a loophole through which Cooper could re-close these businesses should North Carolina see a spike in cases, Cooper repeatedly expressed his concerns over the legislation... Sen. Rick Gunn (R-Alamance) released the following statement in response: "On the same day attorneys argued in court that Gov. Cooper's different treatment of bars and restaurants is inexplicable, Gov. Cooper vetoed this economic lifeline for thousands of businesses across North Carolina. Our state is one of only four that has not reopened gyms and fitness centers. Why did he walk with protesters without a mask on, but prohibits everyday citizens from using an elliptical machine at a gym? Why is it safe to have a drink outside at a restaurant, but it's dangerous to have a drink outside at a bar? Gov. Cooper needs to release the science behind these apparent contradictions."
